Android M:

Android 6.0-6.0.1(Marshmallow) is now installed on about 29.3% devices and it increased from 26.3% last December.

Android 5.0-5.1(Lollipop) wasn’t that much favored and had a drop in usage from solid 34% to 33.4%.

Android K:

Android G:

Android 2.3 Gingerbread also fell to 1% from 1.2 percent in December.

Android F:

Well, for Android F the game is finished and Android 2.2(Froyo) is now dropped off from Google’s graph and it means that it is being used on less than 0.1% devices.

Well, the disappointing thing about this graph is that the latest Android 7.0(Nougat) is installed on less than 1 percent devices but it is due to that only Nexus and Pixel devices have got Android 7.0(except for some exceptions) but this would change in a few months as all the flagship smartphones from big manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, HTC, LG and other will come will Android 7.0 pre-installed and devices from last year will also receive the Android N update soon.
