38 sec read

A little more than a month after asking Android users to suggest names for the next version of Android, codenamed Android N, Google announced the official name through Snapchat on Thursday morning. Staying true to the dessert motif that it’s been using for the last seven years, Google has decided to us the name Nougat for the next version of Android. 

Google announced on Snapchat today that Android N, the latest version of Android, will now go by Android Nougat. The announcement comes after the company said at I/O last month that users could submit suggestions for the name online. Nougat is the latest dessert-themed version of Android, due out later this summer. The release, initially announced in March and currently on its second (and mostly stable) beta, brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year. The release also has Daydream, Google’s new VR platform, baked in, though it’ll only be supported by Daydream-ready handsets running the OS.
