Google has just announced that it is dropping the dessert naming scheme for its Android operating system and that its upcoming Android Q operating system will simply be named Android 10. After this, all Android releases will sport numbers after the Android brand like Android 11, Android 12 and so on.
The company states that it has decided to change the naming scheme as the earlier scheme wasn’t always understood by everyone globally.
This was also an issue for people to understand if their phone is running the latest version or not. It states that this change will help in making Android release names simpler and more intuitive for the global community.
The company will still be providing codenames to its Android releases, however, they will be limited to its internal teams and the operating system’s source code.
