It’s Android distribution time again and it looks like Lollipop is finally picking up speed. Yep, Lollipop.

Android 5.0 accounts for 16.9 percent of all devices that registered with Google Play Store servers during the first week of the month. Android 5.1 makes up 19.2 percent. Adding 5 and 5.1 equals a 36.1 percent share of the Android pie. For the first time, it’s larger than 4.4 KitKat’s share, registered at 34.3 percent.

Version Codename API Distribution
2.2 Froyo 8 0.1%
2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread 10 2.6%
4.0 3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 15 2.3%
4.1.x Jelly Bean 16 8.1%
4.2.x 17 11.0%
4.3.x 18 3.2%
4.4 KitKat 19 16.9%
5.0 Lollipop 21 16.9%
5.1 22 19.2%
6.0 Marshmallow 23 2.3%

Amazingly, Marshmallow has as much of the Android as Ice Cream Sandwich does at 2.3 percent. It’s steady growth for number six, but slow growth.
