In the previous period, Google announced a brand upgrade for Android.Not only will the font, color and iconic small machines have been redesigned, but alsoMore important is to cancel the consistent dessert design,The dessert name is the marker of the Android version before this.For example, Android 2.2 called Froyo,Android 2.3 is Gingerbread,Android 4.2 is Jelly Bean,Android 5.0 called LOLLIPOP,Android 8.0 is Oreo,Or until Android 9,That is, PIE.

What should Android q I should?This is also the question of the Android team to say.Google Abandon Dessert Naming Not just because Q’s dessert name is really hard,More important deep reason lies in,Not everyone can understand the relationship between desserts and versions.
For example, when I mention a dessert version, you may hardly think of the new and old relationship that appears in the Android version.Because the law of the initial order is not clear,But everyone can understand the arabic number.
of course,If Google does not give up the dessert name,Then Android Q will be called Queen Cake (Queen Cake) at least Google Engineering Vice President Dave Burke is what is going on.

For those who don’t know the relevant background,Queen Cake is also known as “Elizabeth Queen Cake”,This is a very traditional sweet food.The chopped coconut will be mixed in the sugar coat.of course,This may be a classic case caused by a dessert name.Because this is not a common dessert other than Canada.
It doesn’t mean that the dessert name does not mean that the Google team will give up this tradition.In fact, the Android team inside the Android Q is called Quince Tart.This is a dessert, a dessert, a tart, a pie, a fruit, a piece of tart.The Google team has a long history of using the internal dessert code for Android.
For example, Android 6.0 Marshmallow cotton candy,Inside the Android team, it was by Macadamia Nut Cookie.And this will not stop,In fact, Dave Burke will be very interesting.There may be only “super fans” in the future, you will know these interesting code.
