April Android distribution numbers reveal Lollipop and KitKat growth


Google has released April’s Android distribution numbers, its report on which Android devices are running what. The information is gathered by tracking what version of Android a device uses when it utilizes the Google Play Store. The good news about this month’s report is that Lollipop grew by 2.1%, bringing it to control 5.4% of the Android pie, up from last month’s 3.3%.

KitKat also grew, going from 40.9% to 41.4%. Jelly Bean dropped from 42.6% to 40.7% while Ice Cream Sandwich shrunk ever so slightly from 5.9% to 5.7%. Gingerbread dropped from 6.9% to 6.4% and Froyo continues to hang on at just 0.4%. Versions with less than 0.1% aren’t displayed, so while there may still be a few Honeycomb devices out there, they’re not prevalent enough to factor in.

This month’s changes weren’t all too significant, but it’s good to see that Lollipop is continuing to grow, even if still only makes up a small portion of the overall total. Check back next month to see the latest results!
