Android 7.0 officially named “Nougat”
After much speculation and rumors, Google has finally unveiled the name for the next version of Android in their statue unveiling ceremony. Android 7.0 is now officially Android Nougat! This news comes after Google released the developer preview of the new OS at Google I/O this year and announced that fans could submit suggestions online which has led the internet to suggesting every single dessert starting with the letter N. It seemed Nutella was a very popular choice, although Google probably didn’t want to pay for those licensing fees.
