Android Q is officially called Android 10

Google has announced the official name for its latest Android update, with Android 10.

The company is shying away from the confectionary names of years past like Pie, Oreo, Marshmellow and many more.

Google says, “Our engineering team has always used internal code names for each version, based off of tasty treats, or desserts, in alphabetical order. This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year externally, too. But we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community.”

So going forward, future Android versions will be referred to by their version number, i.e Android 11 for next year and so on.

Alongside the change in name, Google has also given the Android brand a slight visual overhaul with a “more modern, accessible look.” The Android wordmark is now black instead of green and the Android robot is a different shade of green.

The final release of Android 10 is set to be released in the coming weeks and will also most likely be on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, which are due in October.
