Talking about Android Lollipop initially launched in 2014 is undeniably going strong in the third year of its existence. According to latest data, Android 5.0 Lollipop is running on 9.4 percent of devices while the 5.1 version is running on 23.1 percent of devices. This takes the total share to 32.5 percent, beating Marshmallow with a few points. However, compared to last month, the adoption level has gone down by 0.4 percent. Although it is too early to predict that with the coming of Android O, Lollipop will exit the market, but a gradual decline is noticeable.

Some of the older versions of Android are stable based on the fresh data. Android Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, are still at 1 percent. Jelly Bean witnessed a 0.7 decrease while KitKat went down 1.1 percent. In January, Android Froyo was recorded running on less than 0.1 percent devices, and for the first time did not make it to the list, marking the demise of the OS iteration.
