Welcome Android Nougat; Google’s latest OS update now has a name

Android Nougat

#Android #Nougat is officially the next major release of Android, following in the footsteps of #Marshmallow. It doesn’t feel like Marshmallow has been around for long. Probably because most manufacturers are still in the process of sending out the Marshmallow update to their devices.

But let’s not dwell on the negatives here, the mystery Android N finally has a name to go with. Google only made the announcement about forty minutes ago that it would give away the name today. But little did we know that the reveal would take place this early. But anyway, we’re glad it’s out of the way. It’s not known as of now as to whether this will be known as Android 7.0 or Android 6.1 .

The name picking process was left out to the internet as Google conducted a poll which included other names like Nutter Butter, Nutella etc. Nougat is definitely the best choice, and has a simpler sound to it compared to something like Nutter Butter. Of course, there are differing opinions out there about Google’s pick, but that’s always to be expected.
