While Android KitKat has gained some users, going up from 39.7 percent to 42.6 percent in a span of a month, Google will be worried about the slow adoption rate of Lollipop. Over the past one month, several handsets including the Moto G, Android One handsets, the Galaxy S5 and others started to receive the update, but the distribution needle hasn’t moved much — going up from 1.6 percent to 3.3 percent.
As for other versions, the Ice Cream Sandwich update that Google released in December 2011 has moved down 0.5 points to 5.9 percent and Gingerbread also slipped 0.5 points to 6.9 percent.
