As it does at the beginning of every month, Google this evening updated its Android distribution data to reflect a 7-day period ending on September 9th. The data shows Android 4.4 KitKat reach an all-time usage high of 24.5 percent, up from 20.6 percent last month. Jelly Bean continued its consistent decline, falling from 56.5 percent to 53.8 percent.

Gingerbread, which saw an odd increase in usage last month, fell from 13.6 percent to 11.4 percent. Ice Cream Sandwich decreased from 10.6 percent to 9.6 percentile, while Froyo held its ground at .7 percent.

Android distribution numbers do not include information for devices running a version of the operating system lower than 2.2, as they do not support the latest Google Play Store app. The data as a whole reflects devices that are running and have accessed the latest version of the Play Store app during the past seven days.
