Android Q Is Now Android 10, Google Drops Dessert Names
Google decided to forgo the dessert name convention they have been using for the past decade, and chose to rename Android Q to Android 10.
A naming convention might not seem like much, but it’s actually crucial to the brand. It’s also true that Android is one of the most recognized brands in the world, and switching from dessert names to numbers is not going to be a big deal.
Android Q was the internal name of the upcoming release, and the community was having fun trying to think of what name is going to carry. Google is now using numbers for the forthcoming release, which might not be as fun, but at least it’s not going to as confusing.
Android 10 is the future
Since the new Android is the tenth one, it made sense for Google to try to shake things a little bit. We also have to keep in mind that Android has been using version numbers from the start, so it’s not going to be a significant change for everyone.
