August’s Android distribution figures puts Lollipop at 18.1%

Android logoThe last time we checked, Android 5.x Lollipop was sitting at a combined distribution of 12.4%. This was back in June and for those who are wondering what the state of Android Lollipop is in August, it looks like the numbers have jumped rather significantly. According to the Android Developer Dashboard, Lollipop is now sitting at a combined distribution of 18.1%.

To be more specific, Android 5.0 Lollipop is still commanding the majority at 15.5%, while Android 5.1 is at 2.6%, but we expect those numbers to change in the future as more OEMs and carriers push out the Android 5.1 update to their devices. As for older builds of Android, Froyo is still at 0.3%, but Android Gingerbread has dropped by 1% and is now at 4.6%.

Ice Cream Sandwich has also dropped by 1% to 4.1% which is interesting as it would seem that Gingerbread is still more widely distributed despite it being older. Jelly Bean has a distribution rate of 33.6% which is a very steep drop, especially when you consider that back in June, Jelly Bean commanded about 37.4% of Android distribution.

August’s Android distribution figures puts Lollipop At 18.1%

Last but not least is Android KitKat. In June KitKat was sitting at 39.2% and interestingly enough it has maintained its figures, although it has increased ever so slightly by 0.1% to 39.3%. In any case we’re curious to see how far Android Lollipop will go ahead of Android M’s release, so do check back with us in the coming months for updated stats.
