Google: 36.1% of devices on Lollipop, 2.3% on Marshmallow

In February, 1.2 percent of Android devices were running Marshmallow. One month later, that number has almost doubled to 2.3 percent. In Canada, a number of devices were updated to Marshmallow, including the ZTE Axon Pro, Moto G (2014) and the LG G4.

As has been the case for a number of years, older versions of Android account for the majority of the ecosystem. Lollipop is powering 36.1 percent of devices, up from 34.1 percent last month. In addition, 4.4 KitKat is now the second most used version of Android with 34.3 percent of devices on the OS, while 4.x Jelly Bean, now on 22.3 percent devices, continues its steady decline. Froyo, Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich account for five percent of devices.

Lastly, despite the fact WhatsApp announced its plan to discontinue support for Froyo-equipped devices, a stubborn 0.1 percent of Android devices remain on the aging operating system.
