Yearly with every huge new Android launch, we often get a enjoyable code identify to go together with it. These are sugary snacks that began with the letter C in Android 1.5 and have been working their method down the alphabet. Over the historical past of Android, we have had 1.5 Cupcake, 1.6 Donut, Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.three Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, four.1 Jelly Bean, four.four KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, and Android 9 Pie (this final one dropped the decimal level!). Normally these names are an enormous deal. There are jokes and guesses made about all of them 12 months, Google usually commissions a statue, and generally there are media occasions and big cross-company, brand-sharing initiatives with Nestle or Nabisco.

This 12 months’s Android Q is among the more durable letters to give you a snack codename for, so at this time Google has introduced it isn’t going to do snack names anymore. Android is getting a branding rework, and along with new logos and colours, the snack-based codenames are lifeless. Android Q is official as “Android 10” and simply Android 10, with no additional names in any respect. Google says the codename system was enjoyable, however “weren’t at all times understood by everybody within the world neighborhood:”

For instance, L and R aren’t distinguishable when spoken in some languages. So when some folks heard us say Android Lollipop out loud, it wasn’t intuitively clear that it referred to the model after KitKat. It’s even more durable for brand spanking new Android customers, who’re unfamiliar with the naming conference, to grasp if their cellphone is working the newest model. We additionally know that pies aren’t a dessert in some locations, and that marshmallows, whereas scrumptious, aren’t a well-liked deal with in lots of elements of the world.

As a model, Android is getting new logos and colours. The Android robotic is definitely a part of the emblem now, sitting subsequent to or above the newly tweaked wordmark. The robotic’s inexperienced coloration has been modified considerably too, transferring from a neon inexperienced to a extra sea-foam coloration. Whereas there is no such thing as a official phrase on what’s going to occur to the Android model statues that beautify the Android HQ garden, Android Police experiences the corporate has commissioned an enormous quantity “10” this 12 months.

The announcement of the official Android Q identify as “Android 10” means the OS’s launch needs to be simply across the nook. The Android Q—er Android 10 now, I suppose—safety bulletin went on-line the opposite day too. We’ll maintain you posted and can have the same old huge evaluation when the OS ultimately comes out.
