Android Distribution Numbers Out For July, Android 6.0 Marshmallow Soars To 13.3%

android_dist_july2016

We’re now 12 days into July and Google has updated their Android Distribution Numbers accordingly. These numbers are updated by Google at roughly the start of every month for developers to look at so they can generalize what version of Android their potential install base is running and act upon it.

As of July 12th, Android 6.0 Marshmallow has reached 13.3%, with a record 3.2% increase from last month. Android 5.1 Lollipop also saw a slight increase of 0.8% to sit at 20.8%.

Almost every other version saw a decrease from last month with the most going to KitKat (decrease of 1.5%) except for Android 2.2 Froyo, which for some odd reason is still stuck at 0.1%.

Hopefully we’ll see Froyo disappear completely by the time Android 7.0 Nougat makes its way to the charts later this year.
