Sorry Nutella Enthusiasts! Android has finally settled for Nougat

Google on Thursday has finally announced the name of its latest Operating System, Android N. The next version of Android, likely to be Android 7, will be called Android Nougat. Google officially made the announcement on Snapchat and Twitter and also, posted a video unveiling the look of the latest Android mobile software.

As the Android naming history goes by, it was widely speculated that the latest version, too, will be named after a sweet treat, following the league of Kitkat, Lollipop, and Marshmallow. So, the new flavour turns out to be Nougat.

Google had first displayed Android N in March through a developer preview. At Google I/O in May, the company said that the latest version of its Android OS will be named with the help of user suggestions. The name, thus, was intended to be crowdsourced and Google received millions of submissions from all over the world.

The Android Nugget comes with a host of new features. It supports multi-window mode, has a better notification system and comes with a newly added VR mode, which will give an extra edge to virtual reality viewers.

The users will be able to get its hand on the new Android version in the coming few months. Till then, wait for the treat.

As delicious as it sounds, Google has launched all-new Android version that is named after sweet food Nougat. Google has continued their tradition to serve their fans with something fresh and feature-rich without breaking their typical naming rules.

The Nougat name announced Thursday comes seven weeks after Google sought suggestions during its annual conference for software engineers.

Nougat is scheduled to be released in new smartphones this fall when the makers of existing Android devices will also be able to enable updates to the new software. Nougat’s new features will include the ability to run apps without actually installing them on a device.

The nicknames for earlier Android versions have included Marshmallow, Lollipop, KitKat, Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread.

Google commemorates the different Android nicknames with statues near its Mountain View, California, headquarters.
