Marshmallow captures 4.6 percent of the Android device market

Google has released the latest distribution numbers for Android, and it seems Marshmallow has finally started picking up the pace as it is now running on 4.6 percent of all Android devices. The jump in Android 6.0’s share has likely been affected so strongly because of new device sales and the release of Marshmallow updates by manufacturers for existing devices.

Lollipop remains the leader, though its share dipped slightly from 36.1 percent to 35.8 percent over a month. KitKat is not far behind but also saw a dip – it currently stands at 33.4 percent, a 1.1 percent drop. Jelly Bean sits at 21.3 percent; Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread take up the rest of the pie with 2.2 percent and 2.6 percent. Froyo is still out in the wild, but its distribution is an extremely minute 0.1 percent that could disappear entirely in the next month or so.
