Google formally announces Android 7.0 Nougat in a chipper little video

Share with:


To kick off the formal naming of Android 7.0, Google has posted a video unveiling of the newest Android statue resting outside Google HQ. The search giant prefaced the unveiling with a callback to the name selection process which saw users pitching their picks for Android 7.0’s sugary name.

It’s worth noting that Google need not have bothered with #NameAndroidN. They could have just asked the writer of this article, who has been claiming that it was going to end up being called Nougat from the get-go. Ah, heavy rests the crown of prescience.

Check out the video and then let us know what you think in the comments below. Is there a name you would have preferred to see Android 7.0 receive? I know Nutella was a favorite for a lot of users. Either way, an operating system version by any other name would still taste as sweet, so it matters less what we call 7.0 and more what cool features it will bring to the Android ecosystem.
