Another month has passed, so as usual it's time for us to take a look at the newly updated Android platform distribution numbers and charts.
Around one month ago, Lollipop was trying very hard to reach 10% of all Android installs, and we're happy to report that in the last few weeks it's finally managed that feat.
What's more, Lollipop is now powering 12.4% of devices, if we count both releases called that together. That said, KitKat is still the prevailing version among devices out there, reaching 39.2% of the market this time around. Interestingly, KitKat's share has been dropping steadily for a couple of months or so - perhaps those Lollipop updates are starting to make themselves felt.
The three iterations of Android collectively called Jelly Bean are still (together) in second position, with 37.4% share right now, down from 39.2% a month ago.
Then we have Ice Cream Sandwich with 5.1% (down by 0.2%), Gingerbread with 5.6% (down by 0.1%), and Froyo with 0.3% (which, surprisingly, is flat).
These stats are gathered from Google's new Play Store app, which doesn't work on older versions of Android. And devices that don't have the Play Store installed obviously aren't tracked in this manner.
