Android Distribution Numbers Out For May, Lollipop Almost At 10%


May the fourth be with you as Google has finally updated their Android Distribution numbers for this month. For those unfamiliar with this monthly phenomenon, 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 today May 4th, Android 5.1 receives a slight 0.3% increase to 0.7% but Lollipop as a whole is now 9.7%, up 4.3% from last month. Every other Android version saw a decline, where KitKat dropped 1.6% to 39.8% and Jelly Bean decreased to 39.2%. ICS and Gingerbread continue their slow death and Froyo manages to hang on at 0.3%.

I predict that it will take about three months to fully kill off the Froyo distribution, but anything can happen these days.
