I remember in school days, we used to have weekly report. You must be wondering how that is related to this post. But you will be bit amused to here this! Google has introduced monthly update for their Android Developer Dashboard. They have presented concept of ‘Platform Version’ chart. The Platform Version is quite unique, this will tell how much Android market has scored and so? The data is received from Google Play Store.

Android 4 Kitkat

Jelly Bean Kit Kat still Lead

As per Android Distribution chart, Kitkat scores more. Yes, Kitkat is rising with 39.1% with its first version. While, three version of Jelly Bean too are leading ahead when piled up together. To total up, Jelly bean is installed in 46% of device. While Kitkat is growing more and more in coming days, and will rise so in coming months too.

To overview on the figures earned on different version, then Froyo version of Android have scored lowest around 0.4%. Google has noted that few Android versions which had scored less than 0.1% has not entered in this Platform Version chart. To be very precise, this is prime reason Lollipop version, have not entered into chart yet. Lollipop has not scored positive ranking on charts, also the sales of the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 are not breath-taking.

The interesting point in this chart distribution is, KitKat is not even a year old and has managed to gain well as compared to Lollipop version. This will give tough fight to latest Lollipop version.

Now it is confirmed that a lot of users are migrating to the newer operating system version and not just the latest version. This is cleared from the first android devices share data from Google for 2014. If we see the active devices in January then the new KitKat release raised to 1.4 percent. In month of December older software was 54.1 percent and this month it is raised to 59.1 percent.

Jelly Bean still preferred in Android Devices over KitKat

We all know that KitKat is restricted to Google hardware with Google nexus devices and Motorola device and that is the main reason that most of the third party devices will either get upgrade for KitKat or ship with pre-installed revision. Result that came out is not surprising at all. Android always tries to improve its OS with every new version but the figures that we got here are telling a completely different story. Kitkat is with 1.4 percent of devices and on the other hand, Jelly Beans is with 60 percent of total devices.

Google have not mentioned their Android 1.6 Donut and Android 2.1 Eclair in their monthly report. This is because these operating system versions are not having Google Play support.
