It goes slowly, but surely, forward for Google’s latest version of the Android: better known as version 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Android operating system has not exactly a reputation to be deployed quickly for new software releases. Despite it’s Google, however, not pale in order to publish monthly figures on Android Developer page, where you can see how widely used each Android version is.
Now that we have gone a month now in meeting, it means tradition contemporary figures, which recounts the progress of Android 6.0 Marshmallow-or rather the lack thereof, for it remains quite slow for the many different manufacturers to get updated with the many thousands of different Android smartphones and tablets anywhere in the world.

Since the vast majority of top models after the hand has been upgraded, and since there are still sold many Android phones with Android 5.1 Lollipop, is the growth of the nearly 10-month-old version subsided a bit compared to previous months.
Apart from 6.0 Marshmallow and 5.1 Lollipop goes all the older versions of Android back. The biggest decline is to find by Kitkat-series back from 2013, where in just one month is 0.9 percentage points fewer users. Overall, it is still the sovereign most widespread Android-version with almost one third (29.2%) of all Android devices running this version.
It has not yet officially released Android-version, version 7.0 Nougat, is also right on the stairs and is expected to be rolled out to the first Nexus phones in October. In the following months will this Android version so screw down significantly the pace of spread of Marshmallow at a time when around only every six Android device has the software.
As long as there not made some fundamental changes to the way Android smartphones and tablets will be updated, see the story of the slow take up of Android 6.0 Marshmallow so seem to recur with the upcoming version 7.0 Nougat.
