  • Android 13 can now be found on 15% of GMS-enabled Android devices worldwide.
  • However, the most popular version of Android remains Android, present on 23.1% of Android devices worldwide.
  • Even the decade-old Android 4.4 KitKat remains present on a whopping 15 million devices.

Google used to be pretty transparent about the percentage of devices running on a particular version of Android. These days, that data is not readily available anymore. Instead, Google now randomly updates the Android version distribution statistics on Android Studio. Turns out, Android 11 continues to be the most widely available release of Android as of May 30, 2023.

As shown within Android Studio (via Mishaal Rahman), when you create a new project, these Android version distribution statistics are a percentage of the total GMS-enabled Android devices running right now in the world. The latest public release of Android, Android 13, is now found on 15% of GMS-enabled Android devices worldwide. This increase in Android 13 devices comes at the cost of significant declines in Android 12, Android 11, Android 10, and Android 9.
