Google has released the distribution data for the versions of the mobile operating system for the month of March 2014. According to the report, Android 4.4 KitKat has more than doubled its share from 2.5% in February 2014 to 5.3%. However, this leap is not surprising given that Samsung has pushed out updates for its Galaxy line of tablets and devices while even Moto G has given a significant boost to the numbers this month. Android 4.4 KitKat is the only version that has significantly had a growth since February 2014.

According to source, the numbers that have come in show declines in devices which are running for Android Jelly Bean 4.1 to Android Jelly Bean 4.3, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 and Gingerbread 2.3.3 to Gingerbread 2.3.7. Ice Cream Sandwich fell from 15.2% in February 2014 to 14.3% in March 2014. The details of distribution for Froyo and Honeycomb have also been listed in the pie chart. We have received e-mails from various Android fans from different parts of the globe regarding the Android 4.4 KitKat market share increase quoting that they are very contended with the growth of Android. Jelly Bean is soon going to be replaced by KitKat totally, as the new iteration is supposed to come release in June 2014.

Google has also listed distribution numbers for Open GL support across all Android smartphones, phablets and tablets. Open GL 2.0 is still the leader with 89.4% of the total market share. Open GL 2.0 fell from 92.3% in January 2014 to 91.1% in February 2014 to 89.4% in March 2014.
