It’s Official: Android N Is Android Nougat


ANDROID NOUGATShort Bytes: After months of speculations and guesses, Google has finally revealed the official name of the next version of the Android operating system. Via its Twitter and Snapchat accounts, the tech giant revealed that Android N will be called Android Nougat.

At its Google I/O conference in May, Google unveiled the latest iteration of its mobile operating system i.e. Android N.

Today, finally, Android N has got an official name i.e. Android Nougat. Google announced this news on its Twitter and Snapchat accounts.

For the first time ever, Google invited suggestions from the users and asked them to submit ideas for naming this sweet delicacy.

Ever since its announcement, Google has been dropping hints. While most people were rooting for names like Android Nutella, Google was using Android New York Cheesecake as an internal codename for the mobile operating system.

However, Google didn’t reveal if Nougat was the most voted/suggested–I doubt that–Android name.
