Google just last Thursday announced the arrival of Android 4.4 KitKat. As folks eagerly await the arrival of the newest version of Android (Nexus 5 shipments haven't yet arrived, and other devices won't get Android 4.4 for a few more weeks), Jelly Bean permeation continues at a steady pace.
Google's latest Android usage figures for the seven days ending November 1, 2013 report that Android Jelly Bean is running on a total of 52.1 percent of Android devices. Of course, these aren't all the same versions of Jelly Bean, and Android 4.1 remains the leader with 37.3 percent. Android 4.2 and 4.3 account for 12.5 percent and 2.3 percent of the market, respectively.
Google's latest version of Android, Android 4.4 KitKat, has yet to make it onto the board. This is no surprise, given these numbers were released just one day after KitKat was announced, and the Nexus 5 (the first KitKat device) has yet to ship.
Next to Jelly Bean, Gingerbread is in second place in terms of which Android version accounts for the most users. Google's numbers put Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3 - 2.3.7) at 26.3 percent. Ice Cream Sandwich (build 4.0.3 to 4.0.4) is in third with 19.8 percent.
