We requested, you instructed us: Android P shall be known as…
Android P is coming quick, with the developer preview already out, and we count on to know extra concerning the confectionary-based title of the approaching Android working system improve throughout a keynote at Google I/O 2018.
Android has been launched numerically and alphabetically ever since Android 1.5, or Cupcake. Since then, together with the numerical increment, there’s been a reputation; a tasty sweet-treat that leaves lovers (and journalists!) in every single place just a bit hungry.
Right here’s a brief and scrumptious journey down reminiscence lane:
Earlier Android model names (variations 1.zero and 1.1 didn’t have launch codenames):
So what is going to Android P be named? There’s not a very apparent P dessert, candy, or sweet that leaps out to make a declare. Historical past tells us Google isn’t afraid to cross-license a preferred snack, which they did for each Android four.four (KitKat) and Android eight.zero (Oreo), however even then, the alternatives are usually not straightforward. And we predict Android (Reece’s) Items is only a bridge too far.
We determined to ask as a lot of you as potential so we may get an correct thought of the highest two choices from our Android neighborhood, placing it to you right here on the web site, on Twitter, and by way of our YouTube neighborhood ballot. Collectively we amassed greater than 46,000 votes, and listed below are the outcomes (word that Twitter solely permits 4 voting choices):
The winner is … Android Peppermint!
Android Peppermint was a transparent standout throughout all three votes. YouTubers gave Peppermint a contemporary 46 p.c of the vote, whereas Twitter followers had been a bit extra divided, solely giving Peppermint 31 p.c. The battle for second was very tight, however Pancake managed to carry second in all three polls, simply forward of Popsicle and Pie, with opinion cut up over the higher possibility for third or fourth.
We bundled all the pieces we may consider for pie (Pecan, Pumpkin, Pineapple, Peach…) however not less than one remark identified that Pineapple may not be precisely what Google shall be going for. Anybody else bear in mind when Key Lime Pie was going to be Android four.four’s title on condition that Kitkat would wish licensing?
Spare a thought for Parfait, too, the clear loser on the day. Regardless of being one of many nice versatile desserts, it managed simply three p.c of votes within the two polls that had it. The subsequent time you’re craving a multi-alternate-icecream-custard-syrup-fruit dessert, you’ll be sorry!
However the winner Android Peppermint was our high performer, even when the feedback instructed us simply what number of choices Google have up their sleeve – from regional specialties like Australia/New Zealand’s Pavlova to a sub-continental candy dish in Pongal.
Listed below are among the finest various from the group that we didn’t have up for the vote:
And simply two of the perfect feedback:
That second man has a degree. Quince? …High quality Avenue? The choices are few!
Thanks for voting, and hold your eyes out for when Android P does launch in case you had been proper, and must let everybody know!
