After spending a long time as leader of the Android distribution charts, KitKat finally steps down and Android Lollipop becomes the most used version of Google's mobile operating system. However, the most interesting part of the new charts is Marshmallow's evolution, as this major Android release almost doubled its market share in a month, jumping from 1.2 percent to 2.3 percent.

The data collected by Google during the 7-day period that ends on March 1st shows the following numbers:

  • 2.2 Froyo - 0.1 percent (stable)
  • 2.3 Gingerbread - 2.6 percent (0.1 percent drop)
  • 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich - 2.5 percent (0.2 percent down)
  • 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 Jelly Bean - 8.1, 11.0, 3.2 percent (0.7, 0.7, 0.2 percent down)
  • 4.4 KitKat - 34.3 percent (1.2 percent loss)
  • 5.0, 5.1 Lollipop - 16.9, 19.2 percent (0.1 percent down, 2.1 percent up)
  • 6.0 Marshmallow - 2.3 percent (1.1 percent increase)

Compared to last month, the winners are Lollipop (2 percent increase overall) and Marshmallow. Although the market share gain of Android 6 is lower than Lollipop's, the growth from 1.2 to 2.3 percent in a single month is quite impressive. The next thing to come is Froyo's disappearance from the charts, but Marshmallow is now the main Android variant to watch.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
