Google has put out its latest chart indicating the percentage of devices running on different Android versions and Android Marshmallow 6.0 now has 2.3 % users. The data reflects devices running on the Google play store collected in the first 7 days of March.
It is worth noting that devices on the latest Marshmallow 6.0 have increased from 1.2 percent in February to 2.3 percent now. Android Lollipop also gained from 34.1 percent to 36.1 percent in March. According to the chart, the number of users on Lollipop 5.0 version is 16.9 percent and those on Lollipop 5.1 are 19.2 percent.
We can also see a drop in Android KiKat 4.4 devices from 35.5 percent in February to 34.3 percent. Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread and Froyo also saw a decline in the number of installations. While Jelly Bean was at 24.7 percent in March; it is reduced to 22.3 percent now. Similarly, Ice Cream Sandwich is down to 2.3 percent, Gingerbread to 2.6 percent and Android Froyo 2.2 to 0.1 percent.
Google’s biggest struggle is getting its latest OS to more and more devices, and it’s been around for sometime now. Marshmallow was fully launched in October 2015 and so far, has progressed to only 2.3 percent devices. Evidently Google’s big OS problem continues to persist.
