Google today updated its Platform Versions Web Page for Android, and interestingly Android Jelly Bean version hits 25% adoption while Gingerbread takes a deep down and now counts below 40% as Google change its way on how it counts on users. Starting from April, 2013, the company collected data from each device when the user visits the Google Play Store, although earlier the data was collected when the device simply checked-in to Google servers.
Android Jelly Bean’s version – Android 4.2 and Android 4.1 are on the rise and have passed the 25% adoption mark while Ice Cream Sandwich – Android 4.1 counts at 29.3% adoption mark, making it below the 30% mark still while to note Android 2.3 Gingerbread now counts less than 40% adoption rate – standing at 39.8% – while earlier it makes a count at 44%. All shuffled in adoption rate percentage happens just because of Google’s change in way of observing the things. Believing that to bring better percentage in future it will not change the criteria again.
