Android Marshmallow Now Runs On 7.5 Percent Of Devices, Lollipop Drops To 35.6 Percent

Close

The numbers are in, and Marshmallow now runs on 7.5 percent of Android devices, while Lollipop goes slightly down to 35.6 percent.

According to Google's Android distribution figures, the other versions didn't really change much compared to the results back in April. However, what the latest report indicates is a sluggish but steady rise of the adoption of Marshmallow.

To get a better idea of the overall progress of each Android from last month, here's a rundown of the stats:

Android 2.2 Froyo stayed at 0.1 percent.

Android 2.3.3 to 2.3.7 Gingerbread down from 2.6 percent to 2.2 percent.

Android 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich down from 2.2 percent to 2.0 percent.

Android 4.1 to 4.3 Jelly Bean down from 22.3 percent to 20.1 percent.

Android 4.4 KitKat down from 33.4 percent to 32.5 percent.

Android 5.0 to 5.1 Lollipop down from 35.8 percent to 35.6 percent.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow up from 4.6 percent to 7.5 percent.

As everyone can see, all the versions' distribution dropped except for Android Marshmallow and Android Froyo, which remained at a solid 0.1 percent.

It's also worth pointing out that Android Jelly Bean suffered the hugest dip out of the bunch, continuing the downward trend with a big hit.

At any rate, the takeaway here is that Android Marshmallow is slowly but surely getting around, and it should be noted that some of the most recent devices that have received it include the LG G3 with AT&T and T-Mobile and the LG V10 with AT&T.

Meanwhile, despite the relatively low number of Android Marshmallow, the upcoming Android N is already believed to join the fray soon, as Google is expected to officially unveil it at the 2016 I/O conference in Mountain View in a couple of days' time.
