Data shows Google’s Lollipop is still in the minority of Android Version

Lollipop ForestIt was this time last that a report comes out, states that Microsoft’s Windows XP was operating more than 25% of computers across the world (not even counting nongenuine version of the OS). Unfortunately, Google is having a similar problem with its own mobile OS. A latest study (by Google) just comes out, showing that Google’s newest Android version, Lollipop is still struggling to solve the fragmentation problem of the OS.

The number shows that Android Jelly Bean (4.1 and 4.2) is still dominating the Android market, with 40.7%. Standing in the first place is Kitkat, with 41.4%. The third place position holds by Ice Cream Sandwich, with 5.7% of the market, follows by Lollipop, with 5.4%. The positive side is that the older Android versions are decreasing.

Also, keep in mind that this report was done before the announcement of Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9. However, this should be an alarm for Google, seeing as it is still quite slow to put out updates for their Kitkat and Jelly Beans devices, or attract users with un-updatedable devices to get new hardware.
