Android 13 could be very a lot nonetheless in improvement (as we wait not-so-patiently for Beta 1 to lastly land) however even with its steady launch nonetheless months off, items are already beginning to fall into place for further-out Android variations. One query we have been kicking round for some time now considerations which dessert starting with the letter U is likely to be chosen as the event code title for Android 14 — and it is not like there are a ton of apparent U-names to select from. Immediately we lastly get our reply, with Android 14 set to go by the code title Upside Down Cake.
Google formally clarifies the code title in some current notes added to the AOSP (noticed by 9to5Google). Truthfully, that is the primary U-dessert we considered, mentioning it as a possible possibility again when affirmation arrived for Android 13’s Tiramisu title. Even getting our U from “upside-down” looks like a little bit of a cheat, but it surely’s not like there have been a ton of different apparent choices. If we begin going worldwide with our dessert menu, that might begin opening issues up just a little, however in the end it is under no circumstances shocking to see Google go on this route.
Dessert names was a way more distinguished a part of new Android releases, and you may nonetheless hear long-time customers affectionately reference previous variations like Lollipop or ICS. Even once we weren’t speaking in regards to the dessert itself, it was nonetheless widespread to seek advice from its letter: Android M, or Android Q. However for the launch of Android 10 in 2019, Google took a step again from this affiliation, as a substitute embracing the numerical model as the popular method to speak about Android.
That shift did make an entire lot of sense — it is clear, it is accessible, and actually is simply much more professional-sounding — however for these of us who lengthy for the times when there was just a bit extra “enjoyable” in Android improvement, no less than the desserts reside on as inside code names.
Android 15 is a good distance off, however does anybody need to make any bets as to what our V-name is likely to be? Vanilla-something could possibly be apparent, or will Google take us in a brand new route? Your guess is nearly as good as ours.
