Google’s latest Android 5.1 Lollipop update is still limited to a select number of devices, but it’s now fully represented on Google’s Android install-base chart. The operating system has a 0.4 percent slice of the pie, barely anything really, and complements the existing 5 percent install base for Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Android 4.4 KitKat is still the most popular version of Android and it is installed on 41.4 percent of all Android devices. Various versions of Android 4.x.x Jelly Bean still make up the second largest Android install base with a total of 40.7 percent of all devices running those versions of Google’s mobile operating system.

The earliest version represented on the chart is Android Froyo, with a 0.4 percent slice of the pie. Android Honeycomb — still installed on various gadgets like our own Editor-in-chief Sean Aune’s smart treadmill — doesn’t make an appearance at all.

As usual, we expect the Lollipop install base to climb as new devices, such as the One M9, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, hit the market and folks begin to retire older tablets and smartphones.
