Back in early March 2016, Android Marshmallow usage was still very low, at just 2.3 percent of the market. However, it only took one month for it to double, reaching 4.6 percent in April and now, after two more months, a new barrier has been broken - Android Marshmallow usage is finally above the 10 percent mark.

Strange enough, Froyo still refuses to disappear, remaining at 0.1 percent. Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are both nearing extinction as well, with 2 percent and 1.9 percent. Moving on to the popular Google Android versions, these are their numbers:

  • Android 4.1.x-4.3 Jelly Bean - 18.9 percent
  • Android 4.4 KitKat - 31.6 percent
  • Android 5.x Lollipop - 35.4 percent
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow - 10.1 percent

Although most Android handsets on the market have large screens, the dominant screen size remains around 4 inches, with 86 percent of the total, up from 85.3 percent back in April. As expected, the number of devices with OpenGL ES 3.0 support continues to grow, but OpenGL ES 2.0 still leads (41.8 percent vs. 48.6 percent).

All the numbers mentioned above were collected by Google during a seven-day period ending on June 6, only taking into account the Android devices accessing Google Play.

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.
