Next version of Android OS is ‘Nougat’: Google

New York: Tech giant Google unveiled that the upcoming Android operating system, dubbed Android N, will now go by the name ‘Nougat’. The release, which is currently going through its second beta stage, will bring a host of new features to the Android OS, including split-screen multitasking, new emoji, and a Data Saver function that will allow users to limit the data some of their more hungry apps eat up.

The announcement comes just over a month after Google set up a website for users to submit their own suggestions for the name. Considering the popularity of idea that the next OS be named Nutella, we wonder just how closely Google tied itself to using the suggestion site when it settled on the final name. That said, Nutella could have been a licensing nightmare and Google wouldn’t run the risk of its next OS being called Android Nandos. Nougat will also have Android VR Mode built-in to support Google’s new virtual reality platform Daydream.
