2022 has been a big year for Android fans. Google will release Android 13, the latest version of its mobile operating system, later this year. And now the company has revealed some details about Android 14, which is scheduled to be released in 2023. While most of the information about Android 14 is still hidden, Google has revealed an interesting detail:
We’ve heard rumors about Android 13 and next month, when Google I / O 2022 starts on Wednesday, May 11, we should see a demo of the upcoming Android version, internally known as “Tiramisu” O. Google has given each Android version a dessert name , starting with Android 1.5, which was named Cupcake Dessert in April 2009.
Android 14 dessert code name revealed by AOSP
This practice continued when the next version of Android, released on September 15, 2009, was named Donut Dessert. Every year until Android 10, Google gave the latest version of Android a dessert name in alphabetical order, which became the official name for that year’s build. Just saying and reading these names should stir up waves of nostalgia. Hearing the name Cupcake reminded me of the story this author wrote in March 2009 about getting Android in the Android Cupcake update for virtual QWERTY.
AOSP changes the Android internal code name “14” to “Upside Down Cake”.
A major production is made each year as a statue representing the latest official version of Android is placed in the Googleplex at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. Recently, these statues were removed from the garden in which they were placed. Some hope that Google just wants to restore them before clearing them into Google I / O.
We will provide you with a complete list of dessert names in an instant. But we want to point out that sometimes Google has partnered with a confectionery company to use a well-known product as the official name for Android. In 2013, the Android KitKat update included a flashing ad related to the popular candy bar, and in 2017, the world-famous Oreo cookie was used with Android 8 and Android 8.1.
In 2019, Android began using numeric release numbers as official release names. This year, the name of the dessert had to start with the letter “Q,” which made things, to put it mildly, difficult. Google apparently took this as a signal to stop training, even though Google’s Android 10 was called “Quince Tart.”
Google reveals the name of the Android 14 dessert
Google still uses numbers in the official names of Android releases, and dessert names are only used by Google employees. For example, Android 11 and Android 12 are known at headquarters as Red Velvet Cake and Snow Cone. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) website mentioned the Tiramisu code name for Android 13.
Android 14 was recently given the indoor dessert name Upside Down Cake. 9to5Google posted an image from the AOSP website that reveals the name. And with the letters U, V, W, X, Y, Z left for Android 15-Android 20, Google’s brightest minds will have to work to come up with suitable code names for dessert in the near future.
Here’s a list of the Android dessert code names we’ve promised:
- Android Cupcake 1.5.
- Android Donut 1.6.
- Android Eclair 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.1.
- Android Froyo 2.2-2.2.3.
- Android Gingerbread 2.3-2.3.2, 2.3.3-2.3.7.
- Android Honeycomb 3.0, 3.1, 3.2–3.26.
- Android Ice Cream Sandwich Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 – 4.0.2, 4.0.3 – 4.0.4.
- Android Jelly Bean Jelly Bean 4.1 – 4.1.2, 4.2 – 4.2.2, 4.3 – 4.3.1.
- Android KitKat Key Lime Pie 4.4 – 4.4.4.
- Android Lollipop 5.0 – 5.0.2, 5.1 – 5.1.1.
- Android Marshmallow 6.0 – 6.0.1.
- Android Nougat 7.0, 7.1 – 7.1.2.
- Android Oreo 8.0, 8.1.
- Android Pie 9.
- Android 10 (internal Quince Tart).
- Android 11 (internal Red Velvet Cake).
- Android 12 (internal Snow Cone).
- Android 12L (internal Snow Cone v2).
- Android 13 (internal Tiramisu).
- Android 14 (internal upside down cake).
The names of the desserts that bring me the most memories are Eclair, FroYo and Gingerbread. FroYo and Gingerbread were Android versions that work on many of the best Android phones of their time, including the Motorola DROID, Nexus One, HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola DROID X, LG Revolution and Samsung Nexus S.
Of course, all of these devices were paralyzed compared to current smartphones, but at the time, they all looked amazing.
