The wait for the new iteration of android is over as Google reveals their new version: Android 10. Google has finally put an end to the tradition of naming its Android releases after sweets and desserts and will no longer use the dessert codename for Android and is now switching to a numeral release pattern from now onwards. This means the next Android release will officially be called Android 10 (codenamed Android Q) and the one following it will be called Android 11 (codenamed Android R).
Updates to Android Branding
In addition to the official name reveal for Android Q, the company has also overhauled the Android branding with a new logo, brand color, and wordmark. Google says that new Android logo makes it more ‘modern and accessible’ to the masses. The green color of the logo has now been traded out for black, a visual change which is justified as being easy to read by everyone – especially those with visual impairments.
Like always, the Android robot is still an essential part of the Android logo. Google in the blog post says, “The design of the logo draws inspiration from the most recognizable non-human member of the community, the Android robot.”
They’ll officially start using the updated logo in the coming weeks with the final release of Android 10.
