Google has finally ditched the dessert names for its yearly Android versions.
Going forward, only a version number will follow the operating system. Google claims it is challenging for a global audience to understand dessert names outside the North American continent.
Vice-president of product Sameer Samat explained in a blog post.
“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.”Sameer Samat
“One piece of feedback we’ve gotten from users over the years is that the dessert names are not universally understood in different cultures and different languages. Food tends to sometimes be a local thing,” Samat told 9to5Google.
This means the next major Android version will be Android 10, not Android Q.
Google began the tradition of naming major Android versions since Android 1.6 Cupcake in 2009. It was followed by 1.6 Donut, 2.0 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.1 Jelly Bean, 4.4 KitKat, 5.0 Lollipop, 6.0 Marshmallow, 7.0 Nougat, 8.0 Oreo, and 9 Pie.
As part of this fresh concept, Google is also upgrading its Android logo, opting for a ‘more contemporary, affordable look.’
The new logo will be pushed out “coming weeks with the final release of Android 10.” while no date was set about when the new software is going to be available.
