Android Version Market Share

Android 2.3 Gingerbread debuted in 2010 but it dominated the Android platform until as early June 2013. Then, it finally happened — Google’s year-old Jelly Bean software became the most widely used version of Android as of the 14-day period ended July 8th, 2013. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean debuted on July 9th, 2012, and Google then released an update, Android 4.2, last November. Combined, the two currently available versions of Jelly Bean are now found on 37.9% of all Android devices in use, according to Google’s version tracking data. This tops Gingerbread’s 34.1% usage share and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich’s 23.3% share. If history has taught us anything though, it’s likely that we can now expect to see Jelly Bean remain the dominant Android platform through 2014 and beyond.
