Jelly Bean now running on about 50 Percent of android devices

3 October, 2013 Android


There were some significant changes in the percentage of devices running the different versions of Android. Just ten months ago Android 2.3.3+ was probably the most predominant Android version by using it running on about 50% of all active Android devices.


Because the historic milestone where Android 4.1 became the predominant version of Android, Jelly Bean continues its rise and last month Android 4.1 and 4.2 had a combined 45 percent share, but Android 4.3 was missing from Google's statistics. Finally after more than two months Android 4.3 has begun to make and impact. Its current share is 1.Five percent.


Android 4.3's adoption now appears to be inline, if not better, with the adoption rate of previous releases. For example, Android 4.2 was launched in mid-November 2012 and by December 3rd 2012 it registered a 0.8 percent share and by January 3rd single.2 percent share. 4.3's 1.Five percent share seems about right.


The Android 4.x versions (including 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3) now runs on over two thirds of Android devices. The data are generated by Google using data collected throughout a 7-day period ending on October 2, 2013. All Android versions over the age of Android 2.2 no longer figure in Google's numbers they do not support the new Google Play Store app, which is used as the way of measuring activity.


Gingerbread usage has become significantly within third and is heading towards getting used on a just a quarter of Android devices. The only real other versions of Android which come in Google's numbers are Android 2.2 Froyo, with a 2.2 percent share, and Honeycomb with a stubborn 0.1 percent share. Every time Google releases these numbers I expect Honeycomb to possess disappeared, but it always seems to manage a look and feel.


Samsung is planning to start its Android 4.3 rollout for that its Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 during October and upgrades already are happening for HTC One owners. This should mean that Android 4.3's share increases while Android 4.1 and 4.2 decrease. October should also see the release of Android 4.4 KitKat.
