Google is changing how it names different versions of Android. The company treats with desserts and sweets in favor of the rooms. Which, obviously, is simpler and understandable to everyone. This means that Android Q is officially Android 10.

Android sweet name convention

Android has been with us since 2007 and debuted on the HTC Dream in 2008. Except for the alpha and beta versions, all versions were named after desserts or sweet treats. We had Cupcake, Eclair, Gingerbread, KitKat, Lollipop and Oreo and more.

During development, the next version of Android was known as Android Q. And there was a lot of speculation about which dessert Google was going to use as the name. After all, there aren’t many sweets that start with Q.

So, as explained in The Keyword, Google has decided to call Android Q «Android 10». No funny nickname, it’s just Android 10. And it signals Google’s end of Android naming after desserts and sweets, so the next version will be Android 11.

Google explains this by saying that titles don’t always translate well. While anyone who speaks English will understand what Lollipop means and how to pronounce it, in other languages ​​Lollipop can be unpronounceable or incomprehensible.

Google has also tweaked the Android branding. The title changed from green to black and the letters are thinner and easier to read. The name will now be accompanied by the Android robot, but only the head, with the body removed.

How Google names or numbers the different versions of Android obviously doesn’t matter much to users. However, how well your phone performs matters, so here are some ways to speed up your old Android device.
