Android Q is now simply Android 10

New Android Android Q is now simply Android 10

Android has also matured, and there are hundreds of under-the-hood improvements that have been introduced in Android 10 to make the system more functional and robust.

The next version of the Android operating system (OS) will not be named after a dessert or sweet treat, ending a tradition that started in 2009. Possible names for Android Q included Quiche, Quesadilla, and Quinoa but Google has chosen to simplify things drastically this year by officially naming the release Android 10. This begins with Android Q, which is now known as Android 10. In a blog post announcing the change, Google says the decision to switch to a numbering scheme was to make it clearer which version of Android is newer, especially for the global market. Moreover, Google Pixel and Android One smartphones will be the first devices to get the new Android 10 followed by after smartphones.

Google also stated that users who aren't familiar with the naming convention - which is probably the majority of Android users - were finding it hard to understand whether their phone is running the latest version.

For those who have been keeping count, Android 9 Pie marked Android's 14 dessert-based official release: There was Android 1.0 that was never really released to the public. "For example, L and R are not distinguishable when spoken in some languages". It states that this change will help in making Android release names simpler and more intuitive for the global community. The main "android" text has changed from green to black, and the logo itself now has the popular Android robot, in green. The original color was often paired with other colors that made it hard to see and people with visual impairments often struggled too. However, when examining the new logo, you'll notice that each character has been thinned somewhat, and there's now added serifs. As brand changes go, this one is pretty straightforward, but for an operating system with the reach that Android has, any brand shake ups are big ones.
