It’s been almost four months since Google made the Android 6.0 Marshmallow official. The new operating system launched with Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, and has rolled out for several other devices across the globe as well.
According to the latest numbers published by Google on Android Developers page, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now running on 1.2 percent of devices globally.
The number has increased slightly, from 0.7 percent, but it’s still considerably low as not many devices are updated to the latest operating system.
Android KitKat continues to be the most popular operating system with 35.5 percent while Android Lollipop is running on 34.1 percent devices. Jelly Bean is still running on over 20 percent devices, while the good old Android Gingerbread and Ice Cream is still running on quite a few devices.
Several key manufacturers are yet to release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for their flagship devices after which we may get to see an increase in its market share. The manufacturers have confirmed about the release of the latest operating system, but the exact availability dates are not yet known. We’ll update you as soon as it starts rolling out.
