Android N was announced today at Google’s annual Developer Conference held in Mountain View California. If you didn’t catch the keynote, you might be wondering what the official name of Android N is.
At this time, you’re probably wondering what the official name is for the Android N release. Well, as many of us initially thought, Google didn’t announce the name of the major release during its keynote. In fact, Google is letting the public vote on the name. Everyone is eligible to vote whether you own an Android smartphone, watch, TV, tablet, or none of them. To submit your choice, all you have to do is type Android.com/n into your search bar or click on the full URL, https://www.android.com/versions/name-n/.
At the above link you’ll be able to type-in what you believe should be the yummy dessert that represents the next major iteration Android release. Android N, is what we’re calling it for now, is scheduled to release later this Summer (most presumably in the month of August). It’ll include several new features like direct replies, better graphic performance, new emojis, and more. Ultimately, it’s Google who will pick the name of the N release from the choices we propose. There are no preset choices, giving all names a fair and equal chance of winning. Possible names that have been floating around through this point include Nutella, Nuts, Nutmeg, Neyyappam, Nachos, and Nougat. We’ll never know if Google actually picks the name with the highest number of proposals, but there’s some trust. That brings me to Google’s reminder not to submit any inconsiderate names. Please be mature when submitting your choice.
Now it’s your turn, head to Android.com/n and submit your favorite name for the next major version of Android.
