Google has released its latest Android Platform distribution numbers, and it shows a notable improvement for KitKat.
The operating system saw saw its usage numbers rise by 5% in the 1st week of the year.
The table below should give you a more deeper understanding of the statistics:
|OS version||Android OS||% Devices|
|4.0.4||Ice Cream Sandwich||6.7|
As you can see there is a significant drop in the numbers of all Android OS versions, except KitKat, which has increased from 33.9% in December’s results to 39.1 in January’s.
Lollipop, however isn’t mentioned in the chart or the table, which does not feature any statistics about an OS version which has a usage percentage of 0.1 or below. This isn’t surprising as Lollipop was just released last month for Nexus devices and a few other devices.
