Android 10

“We’re changing the way we name our releases. Our engineering team has always used internal code names for each version, based off of tasty treats, or desserts, in alphabetical order. This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year externally, too. But we’ve heard feedback over the years that everyone in the global community didn’t always understand the names,” The company wrote in its official blog post.

Google started naming its OS after desserts starting from Android Cupcake to the latest one Android Pie 9.0. Google says that they decided to put a more sophisticated name to avoid confusion. They believe that the new titles will be much more transparent and understandable to all.

“As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, this next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10. We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community. And while there were many tempting “Q” desserts out there, we think that at version 10 and 2.5 billion active devices, it was time to make this change,” the tech giant explained.

It further notes, “When some people heard us say Android Lollipop out loud, it wasn’t intuitively clear that it referred to the version after KitKat. 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. We also know that pies are not a dessert in some places and that marshmallows, while delicious, are not a popular treat in many parts of the world.”

The social media users are not happy about this, and many tweeted about it. Check out some reactions from Android users.
