Despite being released back in October 2015, only 1.2% of Android devices are running the new operating system, dubbed Marshmallow.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is getting a slow adoption and the older operating system versions are preferred by people who use Android devices. The previous three versions of the operating system are still dominating the majority of devices that run Android:

  • Jelly Bean – 23%;
  • KitKat – 35.5%; and
  • Lollipop – 34.1%.
