It's that time of the month again, when we find out just how the Android OS is doing with its users. Google have changed up the way they collect these numbers, where they now only collect data from devices that have visited the Google Play store in the last month.




Previously, Google used to count all phones that checked into their servers. This change in collection methods hasn't changed the numbers that much, with Jelly Bean sitting pretty at 25% of the Android market share. Ice Cream Sandwich actually climbed a little, with 29.3% of devices running the deliciously-named OS.
