It has been such a sweet, nice journey with the desserts and probably about time that Google bid farewell to them. Next-generation of Android, the Android Q, won’t have a dessert name and will simply be called Android 10.
Before this, Google has always come up with the right name for the initial of every Android after alpha and beta versions. They had Android Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, and Pie.
Now, I’m hungry.
Anyway, there is also a possibility that it’s just too hard to find a dessert that starts with Q. From “Quarter of a Pound Cake” to “Quince” or to simply skip it all over, Twitter is filled with suggestions. Some even suggested that Google switch to a whole new set of food group.
A spokesperson explains that this may appear to be the right timing to remove the dessert names. Google also explained that desserts that start with Q aren’t exactly inclusive in other languages.
“It’s even harder for new Android users, who are unfamiliar with the naming convention, to understand if their phone is running the latest version,” Sameer Samat, VP of product management from Google wrote on his blog.
Just like how every other OS upgrade, the logo experienced another refreshing slight change. It will only show the top of the head with black Android writing. It’s scheduled for release in Q3 of 2019 which will happen in a couple of months.
