The next Android release will be called Nougat

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.

    I was hoping it will be named in honor of Microsoft’s CEO and be called Nutella.

    They should call any hardened version Nougat d’Alicante.

    ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nougat … correct pronunciation ‘noo-gar’ or ‘nuggat’?

    ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Like the recent EU Referendum here in the UK I’m 50/50 on this … perhaps we should put it to a vote?

      Good question. I was thinking ‘noo-ghat,’ but I’m usually wrong about these things.

    My phone clearly says Namey McNameface when I go to About. I say we petition to keep it that way.

    Thank goodness it wasn’t Nutella. Never really cared for the stuff, or the name.

      Nutella is the chocolatey nectar of the gods…and type II diabetes.

      Probably would have been considered trademark infringement ๐Ÿ˜€

    It pains me that my poor Nexus 5 will get no Nougat. ๐Ÿ™

      There will be ROMs.

      Sometimes it’s for the best, I’ve played with having ROMs carry Nexuses past the point of support, but sometimes newer OSs nuke performance on them. See iOS 8-9 on A5 devices.
