Android Marshmallow share up 3.1 percent in July distribution

Time for another check on how Android is being kept up these days and for Marshmallow, it’s a better month of gains. Its share of the version distribution pie has jumped up by three percentage points, the most it has increased in its lifespan.

The following numbers were collected from Google Play Store logins in the seven days up through July 11.

Version Codename API July (%) Change from June (%)
2.2 Froyo 8 0.1 0
2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread 10 1.9 -0.1
4.0.3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 15 1.7 -0.2
4.1.x Jelly Bean 16 6.4 -0.4
4.2.x Jelly Bean 17 8.8 -0.6
4.3 Jelly Bean 18 2.6 -0.1
4.4 Kitkat 19 30.1 -1.5
5.0 Lollipop 21 14.3 -1.1
5.1 Lollipop 22 20.8 +0.8
6.0 Marshmallow 23 13.3 +3.2

Marshmallow’s big gain as well as Android 5.1 Lollipop’s 0.8 point jump have meant deep cuts in KitKat’s share as well as 5.0’s share. Lollipop’s overall share has dropped by 0.3 percent.

Google did not publish data for last July, but it’ll be interesting to see if Marshmallow breaks 18.1 percent next month. It’s the number that Lollipop achieved last August. And of course, it’ll be several months yet before we’ll ever see Android Nougat on this chart.
