Lollipop runs on less than 0.1% of all Android devices, KitKat now powers 34% of them

36

Google is regularly sharing details on Android distribution numbers, so we’re almost always up to date with what versions of the OS are the most widely used. The latest numbers show that Android 4.4 KitKat was running on 33.9% of all devices that visited Google Play Store in the last week (November 24 - December 1). One month ago, KitKat was running on only 30.2% of devices.

Still, the most widespread version of Android remains Jelly Bean (4.1, 4.2, 4.3), as this can be found on 48.7% of devices. Many Jelly Bean devices won’t receive further updates, so we’ll be seeing this version remaining on top for quite some time from now on. Android Ice Cream Sandwich (7.8%), Android Gingerbread (9.1%) and Android Froyo (0.5%) are also mentioned in the latest numbers.

Google notes that all Android versions that run on less than 0.1% of devices aren’t included in the pie chart above - which means that Android 5.0 Lollipop has yet to make a significant impact. But that’s not really surprising, since Lollipop updates only started a few weeks ago, and most devices have yet to receive them. We’ll be keeping an eye on this and let you know how things evolve in the coming months.
