Latest Android distribution numbers show Lollipop running on 23.5% of all devices


Google has just sent out updated Android distribution numbers for the month of October, showing that Lollipop now runs on 23.5 percent of all active Android devices. This number has risen 2.5 percent from last month’s numbers, which can be found here.

As for the other versions, Android 4.4 KitKat is still installed on the most devices, sitting at 38.9 percent. KitKat saw only a .3-percent decrease from last month’s distribution numbers. Jelly Bean currently resides on 30.2 percent of all active Android devices, a decrease of 1.6 percent month-over-month.

Ice Cream Sandwich saw a .3-percent decrease since last month, now sitting at only 3.4 percent. Gingerbread is still holding strong at 3.8 percent, down from 4.1 percent in the month of September. And yes, Android 2.2 Froyo is still installed on .2 percent of all active Android devices. We should see this ancient version of Android drop off the distribution chart sometime soon, as any version with less than .1 percent of installs are not shown.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow just started rolling out to current Nexus devices yesterday, so it obviously didn’t make the cut. While we wait for the new version make its way to more devices, it’s nice to see Android 5.0 Lollipop becoming more widely adopted throughout the Android ecosystem.
