Android Q’s Official Name is Android 10 and that’s Not Sweet.


Android will no longer be sweet as Google has decided to name Android Q – Android 10. With this, Google is finally breaking the dessert name trend which it followed from years.

The naming convention started with Android 1.6 Cupcake and was followed by 1.6 Donut, 2.0 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.1 Jelly Bean, 4.4 KitKat, 5.0 Lollipop, 6.0 Marshmallow, 7.0 Nougat, 8.0 Oreo, and 9 Pie.

Google’s new naming convention now falls parallel with other operating systems like iOS, Windows and even Chrome. Google is also trying to rebrand Android with this new update.

The “Android” logo with its unique font is now tweaked down to a more simpler font with a black theme instead of green for Android 10. The reason for this was that the green color wasn’t properly visible to those with visual impairments.

There’s still green at some places, just a different shade. The Android robot still appears next to “android” or just on top of it.
