Android Marshmallow hits 7.5% adoption rate; Lollipop slightly down at 35.6%

Google has released the Android platform distribution numbers for the month of May, revealing that the latest iteration of its mobile OS – Marshmallow – is now powering 7.5% of all active Android devices worldwide.

That’s quite a notable jump for Marshmallow given that its share was 4.6% last month. Lollipop, meanwhile, held on to the top spot with 35.6% share, slightly down from 35.8% in April. KitKat also saw a decrease in share from 33.4% last month to 32.5% this month.

All the other previous iterations including Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Ginger Bread also saw their share dropping a bit in the past one month. Froyo, meanwhile, is still at 0.1%, taking its last breaths.
