Android Marshmallow hits ten percent adoption finally- but still overshadowed by Jelly Bean.
Android N approaches a public release that is why Android Marshmallow has now broken through the 10 percent adoption barrier only.
Newest mobile OS from Google, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, is now running on more than 10 percent of Android devices all around the globe.
This milestone has been set after eight months of Google’s Marshmallow release. All this happened with growth in past few months, spurred by most recent devices shipping with the version of Android.
Marshmallow is the fastest-growing version of Android in terms of adoption, increasing 2.6% points since May, while most of the other versions of android were declined by less than even one percent.
Marshmallow’s share has more than doubled since April when it was on just 4.6 percent of android devices.
However, there are still fewer Marshmallow devices connecting to Google Play today than the devices running the four generations old Jelly Bean, which has share of 18.9 percent.
Android Marshmallow, the current Operating System could eclipse Jelly Bean to become the 3rd most adopted version of android by coming October.
The numbers come from Google’s Platform Versions data, which are gathered from the Google Play Store app in the seven-day period ending on June 6, 2016.
The main other variant of Android that developed for in the month of June was Android 5.1 Lollipop, which now has a 20% offer, up from 19.4 percent. Android Lollipop 5.0 plunged up marginally to 15.4 percent. Together, these represent 35.4 percent of all establishments. Android 4.4 KitKat in the mean time declined by short of what one percent to 31.6 percent.
Like Kit-Kat, every adaptation of Android declined by less than 1%.
Android 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 Jelly Bean have a 18.9 percent offer, while Android Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread and Froyo each have an offer of 2 percent or even less than that.
