Google released Android 6 Marshmallow last year in November. Even after releasing the new OS to manufacturers five months back, the OS is still struggling to get double digit market share.
But if we look at the overall picture then we can see that Android 6 Marshmallow is still lagging very badly. The market share in April may have been doubled due several new launches, which comes with Android 6 out of the box.
Samsung Galaxy S7 is latest smartphone which runs on Android 6 Marshmallow. The South Korean company has also released the Marshmallow update for series of devices like Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5.
As you can see in the pie chart above, Android 5 Lollipop holds 35.8% market share. Maximum no. of devices runs on Android Lollipop (5.0-5.1 combined).
After that, Android 4.4 Kitkat has second highest market share. Kitkat market share is now at 33.4%. Third spot is taken by age old Android Jelly bean. Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean now has 21.3% market share.
With many flagship smartphones running on Android 6 Marshmallow out the box are launched and several top manufacturers started releasing the update for its devices, we can expect the market share of Android 6 Marshmallow to go up in coming months.
