The time of the month is here again, when we get information about the the Android operating system break. Android Developers release a blog — only related to Android — every month, giving a sneak peak at the percentage of devices running the versions of Android OS.

According to the latest data, Android is running on 17.9 percent of the devices, rising from almost 13.6 percent last month. This is not a very sharp increase since its been more than six months since Google released the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and it’s only running on the almost 18 percent. The search engine giant even revealed the next version of Android as well, Android L, which is expected to roll out later this year, possibly alongside the new Nexus device.

As for the Jelly Bean, the version (including 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3) is running on 56.6 percent of Android devices, a decline of almost 1.9 percent compared to last month.

Even the earlier versions — Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread — have fallen as well, since the new budget-friendly Android devices are being launched with Android 4.4 KitKat as their operating system.
