Android Distribution Updated for December 2015, Lollipop Hits 30% And Marshmallow Hits 0.5%

 


Google has released its Android Distribution numbers for this month, and Android Marshmallow has shown some sizeable growth. After recording a population of 0.3% last month, Android Marshmallow has grown to 0.5%, which seems like nothing, but considering the total population of Android that’s included is close to a billion devices, that’s a a pretty huge number of smartphones and tablets that are now enjoying the latest version of Android. It’s still going to take some time for Marshmallow to gain sizeable traction, but plenty of manufacturers have queued up their updates for the near future – let’s hope they come before the new year.

Other notable changes include Android Lollipop increasing its share from 25.6% to 29.5%, while KitKat, Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich all saw their share decrease this month. And for those interested, Gingerbread and Froyo are still hanging around with 3.4% and 0.2% respectively.
