Windows Phone Market Share Raises To 4% In April 2016
Windows Phone market share has seen a increase in April 2016, Its about 4%. Thats a nice little boost & it is something that many are keeping a close eye on, particularly now as Microsoft seems to have distanced itself a bit from its mobile OS until 2017.
Mobile still plays a key role in Redmond’s vision, but not in the immediate future, it appears.
But despite all the criticism, the Windows Phone platform is actually found to be gaining ground, as these figures provided by NetMarketShare indicate. The mobile operating system managed to increase its share to a record new height in the span of a month.
It went from 2.54% all the way to 4.03%, as you can see from the chart below:
Often considered to be a mobile platform with a 3% share overall, this is a bit of a surprise. Then again, since Microsoft itself confirmed a dropped in usage, it is hard to validate the authenticity of these numbers above.
Another mobile operating system that went down this past month was iOS, which dropped from 31.76% the month before to 28.42%. So there’s that.
Android remains the clear leader here, upping its share from 61.92% to an impressive 69.99%.
