With a week of delay Google finally makes public the distribution of Android updates This month based on the devices that are connected to Google Play during a seven-day period ended on 5 September.
Again there are no surprises, it has followed the trend of the past few months only two versions of Android which are gaining market share are the two penultimate versions: 5.1 Android Lollipop with a 21.9% (formerly 21.4%) and 6.0 Android Marsmallow with 18.7% (formerly 15.2%), but if that has left us an important headline: Android Marshmallow is already the third most widely used version, This month it has surpassed Android Jelly Bean.
Android Marshmallow has taken almost a year to become the third most-used version Since it was released at the end of September last year. In a year, only 18.7% of devices are updated to this version, that up is not the most recent operating system.
On the other hand, the version most recent operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat, still does not appear in the statistics for not being present in at least of 0,1% of devices.
The first version of the most widely used remains Lollipop 35% (formerly 35.5%) and the second version is also still KitKat with 27.7% (29.2% before). Android Jelly Bean now becomes the fourth version most used with 15.6% (formerly 16.7%). Older versions are still slowly losing market share, but its presence is testimonial. Then I leave with the full table:
In a year to see if Google has had more luck with Nougat or if the contrary always see as the latest version of Android it is overshadowed by the two previous versions, which is what has been happening in recent years.
