Android Q is renamed as Android 10 after Google Stops using Desert-themed names 


Android Q was officially announced by Google at the I/O event this year. At this event, the tech giant reveals some of the features of the Android Q but didn’t confirm the actual name of the upcoming Android version. And now, the company has finally announced the official name of Android Q. Google on Thursday announced the official name of the next android version as Android 10. 

Until now, all the versions of the new Android version were named after Desert or Tasty Treats, but now, the company has simplified the name of the next Android version to make it easily recognizable. n the official blog, Google noted that the reason to change the name of the latest Android release is to make the Android name clear and relatable for global users.

“We’re changing the way we name our releases. Our engineering team has always used internal code names for each version, based on tasty treats, or desserts, in alphabetical order. This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year externally, too. But we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community,” The company noted in its official blog post.

In addition to the naming of Android, Google has also changed the look of the Android logo. This time, the Android robot is sitting at the top of the text. The color of the logo has also been changed from green to black for better visibility. 

The company explains the reason behind changing the brand logo and says, “The design of the logo draws inspiration from the most recognizable non-human member of the community, the Android robot. The robot belongs to everyone in the community and has long been a symbol of the fun and curiosity at the heart of Android. Now, it has a special place in our logo. We also changed the logo from green to black.”

The company will launch the latest logo along with the latest version of the Android in the coming weeks. So, from now, all the latest versions of Android will be named Android 10, Android 11, and so on with the brand new logo.
