Android Platform Distribution May 2015

Google is giving us another look at their monthly distribution numbers for the month of May. When looking at the total number of active Android devices (those that have recently pinged the Google Play Store), Android 5.0 Lollipop is now officially running on 9% of those. Not really a bad number and it’s a pretty large jump from 5.4% the previous month. This is no doubt thanks to, not only a number of flagship devices debuting with Lollipop out of the box, but continual updates to last year’s flagships as well.

Of course, as many of you were anxiously waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop to hit your devices, we’re already looking ahead to 5.1 which can only be found on Nexus devices for the most part. With Google I/O just around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before the next major firmware version is revealed — Android M — and the process can start all over again.
