    Google released the Android distribution stats for the month of April. Unsurprisingly, the share of Android 5.0 and up has grown considerably - an iteration of Lollipop boots on almost 10% of all hardware.

    Android 5.0 is now present on 9% of all devices - up from 5% a month ago. The newer Android 5.1 Lollipop has a share of 0.7% as opposed to 0.4% back in March.

    The distribution gains of Android Lollipop have come mostly at the expense of KitKat. Android 4.4 has dipped to 39.8% - down from 41.4% last month.

    Android Jelly Bean and its various flavors have barely dropped their distribution share in April. combined, the outdated versions run on almost 40% of all Android devices out there. Introduced in 2011, Android Ice Cream Sandwich can still be found on 5.3% of all devices.

    Even more surprisingly, Android 2.3 Gingerbread refuses to go away. The five-year old build is still present on 5.7% of all Android hardware.
