Google Releases December Report: Marshmallow is on 0.5% of devices, Lollipop reaches 29.5%

9 December, 2015 Android


Today Google released the December report of its distribution chart for the Android platform which is targeted for the developers (it can be seen in the image below). This primarily tells us about the progress it has made in terms of market share in each month when it comes to the different Operating System variants. The newest flavour of Android is version 6.0 Marshmallow, which now powers 0.5% of devices out there. There is an increment of 0.3% in the last month. Also in the same time period, Lollipop's market share has gone up to 29.5%, which is almost 4% more than what was in November.



With 36.6% of the market, KitKat's share has decreased slightly and the three Jelly Bean releases altogether are now at 26.9%, around 2% less than last month. Both Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread have lost some market share, and for some unknown reasons the historic Froyo OS is still stagnant at 0.2% share. It is also evident that the devices running on older variants of the OS are not included. It is expected that Marshmallow's share will increase in the first half of 2016, owing to the upgrade of the devices bought in 2015.
