After months of waiting (and a bizarre octopus Easter egg), Google finally announced that the next version of Android — previously known as Android O — will officially be going by the name of Android Oreo.
The use of an existing brand makes sense for Google. There aren’t a ton of good “O” dessert foods out there, and Oreos are pretty much as universally beloved as a cookie can be. There’s also precedent for the partnership, as Google had previously teamed up with Nestlé and Hershey’s to call Android 4.4 KitKat.
Great to see Google still using comfort food as fun names for Android.
