#Android 5.0+ #Lollipop is supposedly running on 23.5% of all Android devices out there, according to October’s Android distribution figures. While this figure is in no way good news to #Google, it’s certainly an improvement over last month’s numbers. Unfortunately for Android 5.0, with Marshmallow gradually rolling out to devices now, its marketshare might actually come down a touch over the next few months.
Android 5.1 Lollipop was found to have gained 2.8% marketshare since last month, partially at the expense of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow will probably not even break into the 1% until later this year, so its figures will be inconsequential. The likes of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Android 4.4 KitKat etc have seen falls in marketshare, which means more devices are making the switch to recent versions of Android.
One thing is for certain though, the ghosts of fragmentation have not gotten off Google’s backs as of yet. And it doesn’t seem like that will change anytime soon. Which Android version are you on right now? Sound off in the comments section below.
