Android Marshmallow barely inched over the 10 percent mark this month in the version distribution numbers. Lollipop remains the most popular version of the OS, followed by KitKat and Jelly Bean. The data shows a slowing of growth for the latest version of Android after consecutive months of increasing rates of growth.

The data is mined from Google Play Store access during the week ending June 6. Here are the numbers:

Version Codename API June (%) Change from May (%)
2.2 Froyo 8 0.1 0
2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread 10 2 -0.2
4.0.3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 15 1.9 -0.1
4.1.x Jelly Bean 16 6.8 -0.4
4.2.x Jelly Bean 17 9.4 -0.6
4.3 Jelly Bean 18 2.7 -0.2
4.4 Kitkat 19 31.6 -0.9
5.0 Lollipop 21 15.4 -0.8
5.1 Lollipop 22 20 +0.6
6.0 Marshmallow 23 10.1 +2.6

The 2.6 percent that Marshmallow tacked on this month breaks the five-month streak of increasing growth rates. Android 5.1 Lollipop registered a 0.6 point gain after no change last month.

At this point last year, Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop registered a combined 12.4 percent share.

Version Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun
