What Is Wrong? Just 2.7% Of Android Users Are On Marshmallow OS

What is going on? Is it that many people are not yet aware of the android 6.0 Marshmallow OS or is it that it is not yet available on most devices? Android 6.0 has been around for some times now but
the latest Android version is still battling to gain more followers like its predecessors. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is reportedly running on only 7.5 percent of active Android phones at the moment.

The top list is dominated by Android Lollipop (launched 2014) at 35.6 percent, android KitKat (launched 2013) at 32.5 percent, and android Jelly Bean operating system (launched 2012) at 20.1 percent.

Meanwhile, 2011's Ice Cream Sandwich android version still hangs on to a sorry 2 percent while the immortal Android Gingerbread which is version 2.3 accounts for 2.2 percent of Android smartphones.

Studying the Google's OS distribution numbers is absolutely hilarious, but somehow google and its hardware partners might be responsible for this. This is because majority of smartphones sold in the year 2013 will never get Android Marshmallow Update.
