Google’s Next Version Of Android Is Called “Marshmallow”


Google has done it a thing to name a Android OS versions after food. Letter by minute in a alphabet (har har). But not only any food — food that’s unequivocally bad for you. This version, that has been called “M” until now, had a name denounced today….

The new “marshmallow” statue was denounced currently on Google’s campus in Mountain View.

Here’s a tantalizing story of Android names (minus a initial two):

image00– Alpha
– Beta
– Cupcake
– Donut
– Eclair
– Froyo
– Gingerbread
– Honeycomb
– Ice Cream Sandwich
– Jelly Bean
– KitKat
– Lollipop
– Marshmallow

If we remember, KitKat got kind of uncanny when Google started doing cranky graduation with a candy company. Maybe there could be a Ghostbusters tie-in this time?

The technical courage of a announcement, along with a name, were common on Android’s Developer blog as well:

Whether we like them true out of a bag, roasted to a golden brownish-red extraneous with a fiery center, or in flint form, who doesn’t like marshmallows? We really like them! Since a launch of a M Developer Preview during Google I/O in May, we’ve enjoyed all of your appearance and feedback. Today with a final Developer Preview update, we’re introducing a central Android 6.0 SDK and opening Google Play for edition your apps that aim a new API turn 23 in Android Marshmallow.

This means that a final chronicle of “M” is in preview and roughly prepared to be rolled out to consumers. No calendar yet, though.
