Google Breaking the 10-years history of naming release after deserts. The company bailing on providing a codename beginning with a subsequent of the alphabet, which is the way we have been referring to Android up to now.
Sameer Samat, VP of Product Management, Android in blog, 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. More than 2.5 billion active devices, it was time to make this change.
Google says that, For a global OS, Android names are required to be clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, the company will simply use the version number for the next upgrade of Android. After the Android 10, you will see Android 11, Android 12 and Android 13 and so on.
Google added, We have heard feedback over the years that the names were not always understood by everyone in the global community. Google also updated the mobile platform’s logo. It changed the text from green to black to make it easier to read, switched fonts and used a close-up of the Android robot that’s now colored in a new shade of green.
The Company also says that the logo draws inspiration from the most recognizable non-human member of the community, the Android robot. The small changes are because green was hard to read especially for people with visual impairments.
Google will never publicly say, what the Q Android Q actually stand for. However, Samat did hint that it came up in our conversation about the new naming scheme. A lot of Q were tossed around, bu my money is on Quince.
While the official name of Android will just be Android 10. That is not stopping the Android team from creating internal codenames in alphabetical order.
