  • Android cutting back on the calories - Android 10 announced



    So it finally happened, Google has dropped naming their Android versions after deserts and joined every other tech company on the planet by adding the number 10 (or X if you like your fruit)




    Quote





    Google has announced that Android Q will now come with an all-new, rather boring name: Android 10. This bucks the trend of Android operating systems being named after sweet foods, and marks a change in the naming direction going forward.

    Google said, "we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community"




    It's true that 'Android 10' is a lot easier to interpret as the tenth iteration of Android than 'Android Q', especially in regions with non-Latin alphabets, and the change is taking place as Android is becoming a ubiquitous operating system in many regions around the world.

    The Android 10 naming change brings with it an aesthetic change to Android's branding, putting the Android mascot front and center (well, slightly to the right like you can see above), and introducing a more green-centric color scheme too. 






     








     




    Personally, I do quite like the new branding, and Google have apparently confirmed that they're still going to use deserts as internal codenames, but they seem to be taking the fun away from Android. 




    And it does make sense from a marketing stand point, since numbers are easier to understand than letters, but I think we'll all still end up calling it by it's desert name.
