It’s been 10 months since Google officially released Android 5.0 Lollipop to the market (the Nexus 9 was the first device to support Android 5.0), and it looks like that version of Android is powering over 20% of all Android devices in the market right now. Google recently released a monthly report for Android, showing the relative number of devices running a given version of the Android platform.
According to the report, Android Lollipop now powers 21% of all Android devices. This is up 2.9% compared to the previous period, while all the older versions of Android usage have been falling between 0.1% to 0.9%. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is now powering 31.8% of all Android devices, while Android 4.4 KitKat has the largest piece of the pie with 39.2%.
Do note that the report is gathered from the new Google Play Store app found on Android 2.2 and above. This means that all devices running on older versions, and devices that does not have Google Play installed (certain Chinese phones, Amazon’s Fire line and such) are not included in the report.
Of course, these numbers could change again in the near future. Android Marshmallow has already been announced, and should be available for Nexus devices soon.
