Google Employee Teases ‘Android Oreo’ On Twitter For Upcoming Android 8.0
Android Nougat is still struggling to increase its presence on Android distribution chart, but developers at Google are now starting to think about the next version of Android after Nougat. As we all know, Google is following an alphabetical dessert naming order for its Android versions. After Android Nougat, the next version is Android O and as per a new tweet by one of Google’s employee, it could be named as Android Oreo.
Android Oreo is more of a captain obvious choice for Android 8.0 and we are sure that is one of the most popular as well. Android users have always been curious about the name of every version and Google has created a lot of buzz about the entire drill. Last year, Google also conducted a public poll for Android N and there were various names that popped up from the suggestion box, such as New York Cheesecake, Neyappam (an Indian dessert), but the most famous one was “Nutella”. Alas, Google finally named Android 7.0 version as Nougat.
A tweet by Hiroshi Lockheimer, SVP of Android, Chrome OS and Play contains a GIF of Oreo cake, which is being treated as a hint. Every year, Google unleashed the name of the Android version in March, and for Android 8.0 too, we will know the final name in the beginning of next month. It is worth pointing out that nothing has been confirmed by Google yet, and there could be a fair chance that Lockheimer tweet could just be a tease with no solid backing.
Also, in the next tweet, Lockheimer posted a picture of “Pocky” biscuits with a hashtag – #2018. It could be a clear hint that he is just playing around with names and has no intention to hint about upcoming Android version.
Anyway, we really hope that Google’s next version is named as Oreo as there is not much choice there, right? We could only think of Oatmeal Cookie or may be some dessert that starts with Orange.
