According to data released by Google, it appears that less than 0.1 % of Android users are using the new Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system.
Despite being made available to users from November 12th 2014, it seems that users have been slow to upgrade to the latest version of Android.
But it’s not all doom and gloom and these recent findings actually aren’t all that surprising.
Part of the reason for this is that Android updates are generally released much slower than say when Apple release an update of iOS. It normally takes a little longer for device makers, such as Samsung, to customise and test their own specific versions of Android.
However, as a comparison, 47% of Apple users had started using iOS 8 within the first 3 weeks of its release.
Currently, the most popular version of Google’s operating system is Android 4.4, known as KitKat, which accounts for almost 34% of the market share, followed by Jelly Bean 4.1 and 4.2 with 21.3 and 20.4% of the market, respectively.
It seems that users with a Nexus device or one of the new Motorola’s will probably have been enjoying using Android Lollipop 5.0 for a couple of weeks, whilst everyone else is still waiting for their respective devices and carriers to catch up.
So if you’re using a Samsung device, just sit tight. Lollipop is on its way and when its does finally arrive it’s even sweeter than you could imagine.
Have you received the Lollipop update yet?
