Google has updated Android’s platform distribution numbers earlier today.

The latest numbers reveal that the adoption rate of Android 4.4.x KitKat, which was released more than two months back is at 1.4%, compared to 1.1% last month.

This is primarily due to the slow rollout of the KitKat update by carriers and device manufacturers.

The latest numbers reveals that the adaption rate of Jelly Bean, which was first released back in July 2012, increased from 54.5% to 59.1%.

Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are still on a significant percentage of the devices (21.2% and 16.9%), but as one would expect, they are continue to decline gradually.

Have you upgraded to KitKat or are you waiting for the update? Let me know in the comments below.
