Jelly Bean climbs the charts in latest Android distribution numbers

Android 5.0 Lollipop is still struggling to make its presence felt in the Android ecosystem.


Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers, and things are looking up for Android 4.4 KitKat. KitKat saw a 5.2 percent increase over the course of a month and is now running on 39.1 percent of all Android devices. Jelly Bean is still in the lead, with its three different versions (4.1-4.3) still making up for 46 percent of devices, though KitKat should be able to leave its predecessor behind in a month or so if it sticks to its current pace.

Lollipop, the latest (and possibly greatest) version of Android, failed to make it to the charts once again – Google only counts versions that are running on more than 0.1 percent of devices, and sadly, Android 5.0 still hasn’t made it to enough devices in the wild to matter. That’s not to say this will be the case for too long – major manufacturers are gearing up to update their devices to Lollipop in the first quarter of 2015, so we should see Google counting 5.0 in the distribution numbers in at least the next two months.
