This is the first time that Lollipop has shown up on the Android Developers Dashboard since OS launched in last November. The Dashboard only shows Android versions with a share higher than 0.1 percent. Though a 1.6 percent share isn't a huge slice, it shows that mobile vendors and carriers have made some progress over the past month rolling out the new version.

Motorola was one of the first device makers to start pushing out Android 5.0 shortly after it was released. But the company is still working on expanding the roll-out to all of its devices across the world.

Among other Android versions, Jelly Bean rolled out in 2012. It still rules the market with a 44.5 percent share. But KitKat, that has debuted in 2013, is catching up with a 39.7 percent share.
