Google on Thursday revealed that the next generation of its mobile operating system, previously called Android Q, will be ditching the dessert monikers that have been a part of its system updates for years. It will simply be known as Android 10.
“As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, this next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10,” Sameer Samat, vice president of product management for Android, wrote in a blog post. “We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community.”
Google is similarly updating its Android logo as part of this new idea, opting for a “more modern, accessible look.”
