There is still so little love for Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system, even after four months since it officially rolled out. Indeed, Marshmallow is now still on only 1.2 percent of all Android powered mobile devices in the whole world, according to the latest information provided by Google’s Android Developer Dashboard. Still, 1.2 percent is a welcome improvement over the 0.7 percent Marshmallow managed only a month ago. Google came up with the market share percentages by checking all the smartphones and tablet devices that paid a visit to the Google Play Store during the week long period spanning January 25th to February 1st of this year.
It appears that Android 4.4 KitKat is still prevalently used among Android-running mobile devices. Through its latest Android Developers Dashboard post, Google announced that Android 4.4 KitKat currently enjoys a 39.1 percent market share.
Released in October 2013, Android KitKat has been steadily rising in popularity. A month ago, its market share was 33.9 percent; two months ago it was 30.2 percent; and last September, it was 25 percent. As anyone can see, Android KitKat has obviously not reached its peak yet.
Based on data made public by Google, it turns out that, for now, less than 0.1 percent of all Android handsets are running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system.
Lollipop was made widely available to consumers back in November 12th of this year. Since that time, carriers have been rolling out updates of the newest Android version to their respective subscribers, at their own pace and schedule.
