Google currently updated a Platform Versions Web page for Android, divulgence that a latest chronicle has finally taken initial place. Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) are not usually still usually growing, though they have also surpassed Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Aside from a Jelly Beans, all other Android versions, including Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), have mislaid share.
Breaking down a numbers some-more specifically, 37.9 percent of Android users are regulating Jelly Bean, 23.3 percent have inclination powered by ICS, 0.1 percent are on Honeycomb, 34.1 are stranded with Gingerbread, and 3.1 percent unfortunately still have Froyo. Compared to last month, Jelly Bean has upheld a 35 percent mark, Gingerbread has depressed next it, and ICS has forsaken next 25 percent.
Here’s how a stream Android landscape looks like in graph and list form:
Android 4.2 grabbed a decent 1.6 commission points (from 4.0 percent to 5.6 percent) while Android 4.1 gained a plain 3.3 commission points (from 29.0 percent to 32.3 percent). Android 4.0 is duration stability a delayed decline: it forsaken another 2.3 points (from 25.6 percent to 23.3 percent).
Android 2.3 mislaid 2.4 points (from 36.5 percent to 34.1 percent) and Android 2.2 dipped 0.1 points (from 3.2 percent to 3.1). The bigger design has finally shifted: a latest and biggest Jelly Beans (June 2012 and Nov 2012) are finally first, Gingerbread (released Dec 2010) is second, ICS (October 2011) is third, and Froyo (May 2010) is fourth.
While this is positively good news, we have to stress that Google recently tweaked a algorithm in regards to how it depends users for these figures. In a possess words, a association said:
Note: Beginning in April, 2013, these charts are now built regulating information collected from any device when a user visits a Google Play Store. Previously, a information was collected when a device simply checked-in to Google servers. We trust a new information some-more accurately reflects those users who are many intent in a Android and Google Play ecosystem.
As we wrote then, this change skews a information by giving an false design of that Android versions are indeed being used while during a same time assisting developers aim users who are actively regulating Google Play.
Keeping this in mind, it’s still good to see that Jelly Bean has finally taken gold. We can usually wish that by a finish of a year, it will have taken 50 percent of a pie.
