Android Marshmallow continues to roll out to a wide range of devices with even more expected in this quarter but to suggest the adoption is setting the world alight would be an great overstatement. In their latest report on Android versions that have hit the Google Play Store, Google has posted that devices running the latest version of the mobile OS accounts for 0.7%. While that is up .2% from December, it is a far cry from rapid adoption. Worse, Android Lollipop, the previous version, continues to hold steady with about 32% of the market. While the information is not 100% accurate, it does give developers a good idea of users who are coming to the store which in turn gives us as users a good idea too.
By far the two most dominant version of Android remain Lollipop at 32.6% and KitKat at 36.1%. KitKat has seen a slow drop in usage as more people move to newer devices with a newer version of Android but it gives you a good idea of the challenge Google faces in getting consumers and manufactures to move up to the latest version of their mobile OS.
