At the beginning of each month, Google published a report about the fragmentation of the Android market, and this month was no exception. As the Google I / O 2016 approach, where we expect to see Android N, Marshmallow continues to grow steadily and is now set to 7.5% of all devices.
This is by 2.9% more compared to the previous month, but the operating sistemki still need to go a long way to go before becoming the most popular version. For example, Android Lollipop was able to become a leader only in March this year, and given that the preliminary version of Android N is available for OEM-manufacturers, the update cycle is slow.
Lollipop share decreased by 0.2% to 35.6%, while the number of on KitKat devices also decreased and now stands at 32.5%. The total number of devices with Android Jelly Bean 20.1%, while last month’s version received 21.3% of the market.
Share Ice Cream Sandvich fell by 0.2% to 2.0%, and “old-timers” Gingerbread and Froyo stubbornly remain at 2.2% and 0.1%, respectively. It should be noted that these figures are made up of Android-devices that use Google Play on the seven-day period ending on 2 May.
