Google has just released the latest Android distribution numbers for this past month, and we’re seeing a welcome addition to the chart this time around. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now running on .3 percent of all active Android devices. Seeing as how it just began rolling out to Nexus handsets a few weeks ago, these are some pretty impressive numbers.

As for the other numbers, Android 5.0 Lollipop is now running on 25.6 percent of active devices, which is a 2.1-percent increase over last month’s numbers. Android 4.4 KitKat is still holding strong at 37.8 percent, a 1.1-percent decrease from last month. Jelly Bean saw a 1.2-percent decrease from last month, now sitting at 29 percent.

Ice Cream Sandwich saw a decrease of just .5 percent, now running on 3.3 percent of active devices. Both Android 2.3 Gingerbread and 2.2 Froyo didn’t see a change in numbers this month. Gingerbread is running on 3.8 percent of all Android devices, and yes, Froyo is still holding on at .2 percent. Any version of Android with less than .1 percent distribution isn’t listed on the chart, so hopefully it won’t be long until Froyo is kicked off.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see how the adoption of Android Marshmallow plays out over the next couple months. For now, though, it’s nice to see Lollipop making its way to more and more Android devices.
