Marshmallow numbers double again

So, if I doubled my son's allowance from one week from $2 to $4, that's a big difference, but in the end it's still a pretty small number.

That's how it's feeling with the Marshmallow adoption rate (well, I can't even call it an adoption rate, like the push rate).  But it has doubled; from 2.3% to 4.6%.

Data collected during a 7-day period ending on April 4, 2016.
Any versions with less than 0.1% distribution are not shown.



Now, if you keep track - like I do - you may take a look at it and say that it grew by doubling, not just once, but 2 months in a row.  No other version has shown doubling growth 2 months in a row (4.3 came close from 2.3 - 5 - 8).

So, it's happening, more people are getting on, and as more folks are buying newer flagships  and some of the other items are getting Marshmallow the number will continue to grow.  How much it grows beyond this point will be interesting.

There's still a large portion on KitKat and Lollipop hasn't grown that much month over month (overall it's still more than KitKat).

What version are you on?  Of my devices in the house I have 8 devices on Marshmallow, 1 on Lollipop and 2 on KitKat.
