Google IO 2017 Coverage

Lollipop is now the most used Android variant


Google has released Android distribution numbers for March 2016, and it looks like Marshmallow is slowly increasing. It is up 1.2% from last month. A very slow increase for an operating system that was released last year, but at least it’s increasing.

Also, Lollipop has once again grown from 34.1% last month to 36.1% this month. It just barely beat out KitKat, which sits at 34.3%. This makes Lollipop the most installed Android version in the world, currently.

Jelly Bean has dropped from 23.9% to 22.3%, while Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread, and Froyo make up only 5% combined. Froyo only has 0.1%, which means it will probably be dropped next month. Google never lists any distribution with less than 0.1%.
