Android reported that 4.6% of all Android devices are now running with the new Marshmallow 6.0 software update and slowly gaining its momentum.
It’s been almost a full 6 months since Google released the latest version of Android Marshmallow 6.0. Following the recent sweet-flavored name from the past, it has now attained a double market share within its past month status.
Google has provided a figure that also showed other version’s progress. Android Lollipop dipped slightly from 36.1% to 35.8%, Kitkat fallen from 34.3% down to 33.4, meanwhile Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3.x Gingerbread are clinging at 0.1% and 2.6%, respectively, which leaves the question if it will drop to 0% in the future.
Android Marshmallow 6.0 distribution figures are slow since there are many factors involved in pushing out the update, where Google needs to give the code to manufacturers to pass on to their customers. Even if the system update 6.0 isn’t quite the same as what iOS is seeing at the moment, it is said to have individual app permissions, native support for fingerprint sensors, and granular context features for Google Now, better app-to-app communication, and a new power management features.
