KitKat running on 1.1% of Android devices, Jelly Bean grows to 54.5%: Google

Google’s latest Android version 4.4, KitKat, is now running on 1.1% of the total number of active Android devices. According to Google’s updated platform versions distribution for Android, Jelly Bean’s all three iterations – v4.1x, v4.2x and v4.3 – combined run on 54.5% of devices (v4.1x on 37.4% devices, v4.2x on 12.9% and v4.3 on 4.2%).

Rate of Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installations has slipped from 19.8% to 18.6%, while Gingerbread (Android 2.3) has slid from 26.3% to 24.1%.

Google’s new Android dashboard that assesses installations rate of Android devices reveal a relatively quick adoption rate of KitKat. Google had launched its new Android iteration along with the new Nexus 5.

Comparing KitKat to the Android v4.3, the iteration was released in July on the new Nexus 7, but made it first appearance in the Android dashboard in October’s figures, where it was running on about 1.5% of devices.

It’s notable KitKat has already started rolling out to some devices such as Google Play editions of Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, Nexus 4 and Moto X. KitKat’s share is expected to grow significantly in the near future, as Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Sony plan to roll out KitKat across their devices over the coming weeks and months.
