The next Android version is coming up. However, there would not be the guessing game that we have always loved about the newer versions of the Android operating system. Yes, there would not be any guessing this time about what Android Q will be called – it will simply be referred to as Android 10!
Google has quietly left the dessert names this time and named its next version of Android simply Android 10. With this, there is an end to the 10 year history of naming the successive iterations of the Android ecosystem in alphabetical desserts. In fact, Android Q has become non-existant with this take. It will be Android 10 this year and Android 11 next year and so on.
There will be the green robot though associated with the name. Aude Gandon, global brand director for Android has rightly claimed that “The robot is what makes Android special. It makes it human, fun, and approachable”. However, the new logo and design gives Android has a “more modern” wordmark.
Why was this change adopted? Contrary to the popular belief that a dessert with Q is not easy to find, it is more so because desserts do not give an all inclusive feeling when it comes to naming the operating system versions. Android being a global brand, opting for the $English names would not make it a good option. That is exactly why Google decided to ditch the desserts with Q and opted for the pure word based naming.
It could not have been a better th=ime than this. Making a changeover with the 10th version of the popular operating system in itself should be a perfect option.
