Google’s New Strategy Helps Android Jelly Bean To Spread

jell1Well it seems like the latest update of Android after all its dessert themed updates named Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich; the Jelly Bean is finally showing its acceptance to the people. The new greater response towards Android 4.1 to 4.2 or Jelly Bean was first noticed by Droid Life, which is an Android developer blog site. According to the data captured by them it states that almost a quarter of all Android devices now have the Jelly Bean OS based on a study that went on for two weeks until April 02, 2013. It also mentions that the jump of Jelly Bean OS based devices is a whopping 25% from 16% even a month ago.

But the reason behind this data maybe, as to how Google is collecting its data; is by tweaking the calculation of its adoption system for the particular Jelly Bean OS. Where else the Android ecosystem still consists of users out of which 39.7% still rely on their Android 2.3 or the Gingerbread, and 29.3% of the customers choose Android 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich. Now though the Android updates are deeply fragmented, Google has launched an all together different strategy to identify the actual Jelly Bean users. So earlier when Google used to track down its devices once it checked onto the Google server, it now has finally started to tally its Jelly Bean devices whenever a user visits the Google Play Store. With this aim Google can better serve the developers who are more interested to know about the active users of Google Play Store as this group represents those more involved with downloading and purchasing of various applications. And with more people interested in Jelly Bean, Google can push Jelly Bean to newer customers too helping it to spread.
