Google has finally named its latest mobile operating system Android N. The company said in a release that the next version of Android, i.e. Android N will be called Android Nougat. People, who are familiar about the naming pattern of android operating system are not surprised seeing this name at all. The name carries forward the tradition of naming major Android releases after desserts.
The journey began with with Android 1.5 Cupcake, followed by Android 1.6 Donut, Android 2.0 Eclair, Android 2.2 Froyo, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The pattern continued with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Android 4.4 KitKat, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
At Google’s annual developer conference held at Google I/O, the company had invited users to help name Android N. We don’t have any idea if the Android Nougat name was the popular choice among the suggestions, or it’s the name that Google itself chose for the product. With Android N, Google brings several improvements to this most popular mobile operating system like multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, number blocking, and more.
