Joins Jelly Bean and Gingerbread in top three Android versions
Google has released the latest Android platform data and as you can expect, there are no surprises. KitKat has continued growing swiftly and is now present on a 13.6 percent of the active Android devices. It has overtaken Ice Cream Sandwich to become the third biggest Android version.
Among other versions, Jelly Bean still remains the most used Android version with presence on 58.4 percent of the devices, followed by Gingerbread on 14.9 percent. Froyo is present on just 0.8 percent of devices and Honeycomb’s market share has fallen below 0.1 percent, thus it is no longer included in the Android platform statistics.
Here is a look at what has changed from last month:
Froyo: Down to 0.8 percent from 1 percent
Gingerbread: Down to 14.9 percent from 16.2 percent
Ice Cream Sandwich: Down to 12.3 percent from 13.4 percent
Jelly Bean: Down to 58.4 percent from 60.8 percent
KitKat: Up to 13.6 percent from 8.5 percent
