Last time we heard from Google about its mobile platform’s version distribution numbers, the latest, Android 5 Lollipop, accounted for 12% of all devices hitting Play Store’s servers. From the figures released on its developer dashboard in the last few hours, that number has risen to 18% in the last one month.
The bug-ridden Android 5.0 accounts for the lion’s share of the 18.1% as 15.5% of Android devices run it while just 2.6% have the latest 5.1 update installed, an improvement from early June when it was negligible.
Here is how the charts look like:
While Froyo sits pretty with just 0.3% of all Android devices running on it, it’s exit from the chart next time is inevitable. Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are also on the way out as they have dropped below the 5% mark. KitKat has surprisingly gained a point as it accounts for 39.3% of All Android devices hitting the Play Store’s servers in the 7-day period ending 3rd August. However, that negligible gain is not expected to last long as more and more devices make the switch to Android Lollipop.
