Google has released the latest Android Distribution numbers for the month of November and it seems the latest Android 4.4 KitKat is slowly coming to more devices.
As per the latest numbers, Android 4.4 KitKat is running on 33.9 percent of Android devices, but it’s not a very big change. There are literally hundreds of thousands of devices out in the wild, and various models so updating all of them may require a lot of resources.
Major OEMs prefer to update their flagship devices to the latest operating system, and that makes sense too. As for Android Jelly Bean, it continues to fall, and is now running on less than 50 percent of Android devices. To be exact, Android 4.3 is running on 7 percent; Android 4.2.x on 20.4 percent and Android 4.1.x on 21.3 percent. Older versions like Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are still running on 9.1 and 7.8 percent respectively.
Google has also released the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which launched with the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. However, it may take a little while before we get to see them in the distribution numbers. Nexus devices as well as some other Motorola handsets have received the update, with others plan to do so in the coming months.
