Android in October: KitKat distribution share edges past 30%

03 November, 2014

Google released the Android distribution report for the month of October. Unsurprisingly, Android 4.4 KitKat continued its march towards bigger distribution share - it now boots on more than 30% of all devices out there.

Android 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 Jelly Bean is still the most dominant OS version with 50.9% share. However, it is down almost 3% from the month of September.

The three-year old Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is still booting on 8.5% of all devices. Android 2.3 Gingerbread on the other hand saw its distribution share drop into single digits to 9.8%.

The latest Android 5.0 Lollipop will likely appear on the map during next month’s distribution report.
