The team behind Android releases information on platform versions regularly to show the number of devices running a given version of the Android platform.

Android 5.1 increased by 0.6 percentage points and is now present on 21.4% of all active Android devices. Marshmallow, on the other hand, saw a more generous gain with a 1.9 percentage point increase.
