Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google. It is the most popular operating system in the world, with a market share of over 70%. Android has a new version every year, and each version is named after a sweet treat in alphabetical order. Android 1.5 was named Cupcake, 1.6 was Donut, 2.0 to 2.1 were Eclair, and so on. In this article, we will discuss what Android 13 is called.
The History of Android Names
The tradition of naming Android versions after sweet treats started with Android 1.5 Cupcake in 2009. Since then, we have seen names like Donut, Eclair, Gingerbread, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, Pie, and Android 10, which broke the tradition by ditching the sweet treats and opting for a simpler numeric name.
Android 11 and Android 12 were named after desserts that start with the letter R and S, respectively. Android 11 was named after the Indian dessert Rasgulla, while Android 12 was named Snow Cone. Both names were chosen through a poll, with users submitting their suggestions.
