We are now in December which means that Google has recently released their Android distribution stats for the month of November, and if you’re wondering how the adoption of the later builds of Android is doing, you will be pleased to learn that it looks like Android 4.4 KitKat is on the rise.
As we saw last month, KitKat was sitting at 30.2% but the latest figures from Google have revealed that the number has since managed to increase to 33.9% in a month. Jelly Bean’s figures have dropped by a bit too but presumably this is because more users are upgrading their devices to Android 4.4.
Both Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread have similarly dipped as more users move towards newer builds, but oddly enough Froyo’s distribution actually saw an increase from 0.5% to 0.6%. Google still has not included the figures from the latest build of Android which is version 5.0 Lollipop, so we have to wonder how well Google’s latest operating system is doing.
Perhaps we will learn more in next month’s distribution figures, but for now it looks like Android 4.4 KitKat is doing a good job at growing. In the meantime how do you guys think Android 5.0 Lollipop is doing? Anyone care to venture a guess at Lollipop’s distribution figures?
