Since its announcement in October, Android 4.4 KitKat has been slowly working its way into as many devices as it can. On the three month anniversary of its announcement, Google reports that it has only reached 1.8 percent of devices, a small leap from the 1.4 percent it reached last month.

Android Jelly Bean also saw an increase, jumping from 59 percent to 61 percent over the previous month, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean specifically saw the biggest jump from a 7.8 percent install base to an 8.9 percent install base.

On the way out are both Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich. Both saw natural decreases in their numbers with more updated versions replacing them.

Beyond the normal ups and down, it’s that .1 percent of Honeycomb that continues to linger on Google’s chart, though eventually we suspect that figure will vanish entirely.

As the number of phones receiving their KitKat continues to climb, so too does KitKat’s percentage. The HTC One seems primed and ready to be see the next big wave of OTA updates. We’ll let you know when your phone is on deck.
