Lollipop finally makes it onto Android distribution chart

Android 5.0 logo 

The big news is that, for the first time ever, Lollipop has appeared in the Android distribution chart you can see below. Although the newest version of Google's mobile operating system has been out for a few months, it's only now starting to be seen on more than 0.1% of devices. OS releases that are under that threshold aren't shown in the chart.

Compared to the January report, Android 4.4 KitKat has grown from 39.1% to 39.7%, and it's still in the most used version of the OS if you count the three different Jelly Bean releases separately. Otherwise, Jelly Bean leads the market with a 44.5% aggregate share.

Ice Cream Sandwich has dropped from 6.7% to 6.4%, Gingerbread from 7.8% to 7.4%, while Froyo has interestingly held still at a measly 0.4% of the market.

Now that more and more smartphone makers and carriers across the world are in the process of making Android 5.0 Lollipop updates available for their devices, the latest iteration of the OS should start growing in the charts we'll see in the following months.
