The Google Android mobile operating system is used on millions of devices. It is used on a range of low-end to high-end devices. The low-end devices still run on Android Froyo (version 2.2) and the high-end devices run on Android KitKat (version 4.4).
Google releases a major update on Android ever year. This makes the life of developers harder. Google tracks the breakdown of devices that run on each version of Android. Now Jelly Bean (version 4.1-4.3) is being used on 60.7% of Android devices.
Android 4.0 is used on around 78.6% of Android devices. The latest version of the mobile operating system, Android KitKat, is at a 1.8% adoption rate right now. But I’m sure that the gap will close at a rapid pace throughout 2014.
