After naming Android versions on desserts for one decade, Google has finally decided to move on. Android 10, that’s going to be the name of the next version of Android OS.

Google has clarified that the change is the result of feedback received from the global community over the years. The company explained that Android versions’ name, based on desserts, were not very clear for many. For example, Android KitKat doesn’t immediately strike the version people are talking about.

Besides, in many countries, the pronunciation differentiation also creates confusion for Android versions. There are languages in which it’s very difficult to distinguish between the letter L and R. Hence, when a person, speaking in any of those languages, pronounce Android L many could misunderstand it with Android R. Google is yet to release any Android with version R. The next version was supposed to be named as Android Q. After the new naming pattern, however, it would be called as Android 10.

Google launched the Android OS in September 2008. During its near 11 years of existence, the exploded adoption of Android OS has helped it to reach the pole position. Android OS accounted for 69.7% of the total mobile OS market by the end of July 2019.

Android 10: The New Logo

The version of Android is not the only change Google has made. Google has also released a new logo of Android.

The new colour scheme using the head only of the robot would be used as an Android logo. The company has maintained the same green colour, albeit with a different shade.

Google last changed the Android logo in 2014.

While the exact release date of Android 10 is still unknown, it’s expected that Google will take place in the next few weeks.

There are 2.5 billion active Android-powered devices out there in the market. With the new latest changes to Android name and Android Logo, Google has made the name much easier to remember and relate.

While Google looks so committed to ‘fix’ issues with Android name an Android Logo, it would be interesting to see what plans Google has got to solve the long-pending and far challenging issue with Android – Android Fragmentation.

Here is a video that explains changes made to Android OS.
