Android 5.0 Lollipop on 1.6 percent of devices

Android 5.0 Lollipop has finally made its way onto the platform versions chart, amassing a mere 1.6 percent of all current devices. The February numbers — really for the seven days ending Feb. 2; we'll get our next set of numbers in another month — mark the first time Lollipop has made it onto the chart. The code was released to the Android Open Source Project in early December.

The Jelly Bean version of Android — which comprises Android 4.1.x to Android 4.3 — still comprises 44.5 percent of total installations, down just one-half of one percentage point. Android 4.4 KitKat came in third at 39.7 percent of total installs.

By comparison: KitKat racked up 1.8 percent of all installations at this same time in 2014. Google's current crop of Nexus devices are all running Lollipop, of course, and the HTC One, Moto X, Moto G, LG G3 and most recently the Samsung Galaxy S5 have begun receiving updates as well.
