The next Android release will be called Nougat


— 3:09 PM on June 30, 2016

Back at its I/O conference, Google called for the Android community to submit names for its upcoming Android N release. Android has traditionally been named after sweets, so it's not surprising the company settled on Android Nougat for its next release. The company made the announcement in a celebratory Tweet that we've embedded below.

While Android Nutella or Android Neyyappam both seemed like popular choices in the Twitter discussion that followed the announcement—and the obvious choice of Namey McNameFace was cut out from the start—it seems we'll have to be satisfied with Nougat. Google's latest OS should arrive sometime later this year.
