Google has stopped naming Android releases. For the past ten years all new versions have been given the name of a sweet, but with the release of Android Q that will stop. That version will be called Android 10.
The system with letters turned out not to be easy for everyone in the world to understand, because, for example, the L and R sound almost the same in some languages, Google argues. Android has always had version numbers, but from now on that is also the name of the operating system. The successor to Android Pie will therefore be called Android 10.
Google has also given Android a new logo, although it still contains the robot that has been part of the Android logo since the beginning. The robot is green, but the letters are now black instead of green to make them easier to read.
Google will start using the new logo with the release of Android 10, which will take place sometime in the coming weeks. When exactly that will happen, the search giant does not disclose.
