Marshmallow now on 13.3% of all devices
The latest Android distribution figures are here, and it seems that Marshmallow has grown in popularity. The latest officially released Android flavor has been powering 13.3% of all active Android devices in June, which is a substantial increase over its 10.1% distribution figures for May 2016.

Lollipop remains the most popular Android version, being found on 35.1% of all active devices last month. Close second comes KitKat, which powered 30.1% devices throughout June. 

All the previous Android versions are gradually getting phased out, with the exception of Android Froyo, the 6-year-old version of the OS, which was still at the heart of 0.1% of all 'Droids last month. Talk about immortality!

However, the distribution of Android's versions is not that important when you compare it with Google's own Play Services - having an up-to-date version of the latter is much more important. 

Yet, we can't wait to see what Android 7.0 Nougat's distribution will be once it hits us later this year. Check out our preview to find out if you should get excited about it... or not.
