Google issues Android version distribution figures every month to give us a better idea on where each version of Android stands as far as marketshare is concerned. And there’s good news all around from this month’s figures as Android 5.0 Lollipop has more than doubled its marketshare, bringing the total tally to 3.3%. This after Lollipop barely made it to the chart a couple of months ago.
Android 5.0 was at 1.6% the same time last month, which means Lollipop has grown significantly over a 30 day period. The other good news comes from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean’s loss of marketshare by 1.1%. This is welcoming information for Google as more users make the switch to newer versions of Android.
While Android 5.0 adoption is nowhere near where Google would want it to be, it goes without saying that the platform will grow even further over the coming months. Manufacturers like Samsung, LG and HTC have begun the Android 5.0 rollout for their devices, so the number could increase drastically when the figures are released again next month.
Android 5.1 Lollipop is yet to make an appearance on the chart, which might take a while as it’s only running on some Android One devices in Indonesia.
