The developer dashboard has been updated, and there’s some big movement this month. In the post holiday window, KitKat is up a healthy 5.2% and Gingerbread drops another 1.3%. One thing you won’t see on the chart is Lollipop. Android 5.0 still hasn’t hit the 0.1% threshold to be included in the data, just like last month.
Google Play Services mitigates a lot of the concerns about updates – not that many people seem to understand that – but this is still Android’s biggest weakness by a huge margin. Sadly, it’s also something Google seems to be doing little about. Also, this.
