Almost Doubled the Market Share for Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Each month publishes Google, just as Apple does it with iOS, new figures on how widespread the various versions of Android are. This happens at Google’s Developer page, where new, fresh figures have just been posted.

The story usually more often than not to be the same: how slowly the latest version be deployed and how long they are over 5 years old versions like Froyo and Gingerbread continues to hang at. This time, however, there is little progress to track how Android 6.0 Marshmallow almost has doubled market share compared to the month before.

This means that the market shares for the most recent version now has crept up on-still very small-2.3%.This is an increase of 1.2% 1.1 percentage points from the version that was on the previous month. Immediately you would think that it is the latest version that is in the greatest growth, but such is not the case with Android.

Here it is for version 5.1 Lollipop, there is in the greatest prosperity. 17.1% prevalence in the last month has now risen to 19.2% for the one year old Android version.

VERSION CODE NAME API DISSEMINATION
2.2 Froyo 8 0.1%
2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread 10 2.6%
4.0.3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 15 2.3%
4.1. x Jelly Bean 16 8.1%
4.2. x 17 11%
4.3 18 3.2%
4.4 Kitkat 19 34.3%
5.0 Lollipop 21 16.9%
5.1 22 19.2%
6.0 Marshmallow 23 2.3%

The progress of Marshmallow is due to the fact that the major manufacturers only now really begins to update the top models. A range-topping such as Galaxy S6 edge + has first gotten Android 6.0 Marshmallow last week, while the software even lets wait for it on many other smartphones.

Within the next month, where the figures are updated again, should most top models have been received, and therefore get Android 6.0 Marshmallow market shares will probably also a good push in the weather.

Even if that were to happen a great prosperity in the next month, however, the figures still pales in comparison to Apple, which is able to update the relatively few iPhones with lightning speed. By way of comparison , it took only three days to update compatible Apple iPhones with version 9 of iOS, and today – almost half a year later – is 77% of iOS devices running iOS with 9.
