Google's Android Q has officially lost its sweet tooth

Mobile
[MUSIC] It's official. Android Q has a name. But forget your sweet tooth. After marshmallow, nougat, oreo and pie, the next generation of Android will simply be called Android 10. Google's head of Android, Samir Samat, said it's important for the names to be, quote, clear and relatable for everyone in the world. Now, the operating system is set to launch in the coming weeks. There's no firm date yet. And it'll bring support for things like foldable screens, gesture navigation, and new privacy features like more granular location controls. Now, what do you reckon, Eli? Do you think it's quote simpler and more intuitive, as Google says, or has the company lost its sense of fun? It's definitely simpler from finding a With a Q name? Yeah. I can't really think of one. I don't know if you can. I put the challenge out to our audience if you can think of a Q dessert or sweet. I was deep in the bowels of the internet today trying to find something. Yeah, so from that it doesn't really make sense for them to go with the dessert name again. I guess I could do, Quesadilla. [LAUGH] Which I guess could technically depend. You could get a chocolate quesadilla. I would be down for that. Yeah. So I guess that would have worked. Yeah, it's a. Maybe Nestle Quick if we were talking with some colleagues if they wanted to go with another partnership. Yeah. Yeah, well they did the Kit Kat and they did the REO kinda cross branding promotional stuff. Which is good cuz then, when you get to S, you can have a Android Snickers. Absolutely. Which would be great. Yeah, not a fan of peanuts. But yeah, otherwise, apparently there are some issues with languages. Eleanor Sumir Sumat writes in his blogpost were indistinguishable in certain languages so that was some confusion for people. Obviously the cute dessert name probably played a role I would imagine. As for the sense of fun, yeah it seems like there's a little bit of the whimsy is gone from Google now. Yeah I think it's sort of one of those logical progressions that we've seen all of the brands go towards just number operating systems. Google was always that kind of we're fun we got our little android robot and we're really cool also the logo is changing a bit but I guess it does make since I am a bit sad part of me has died today I just wanted I was living in hope I think it's also interesting now that We have iPhone had the iPhone 10, which was an X and now Android Q is pronounced Android 10. So I feel like words don't mean anything and languages dead. That's definitely Ferran. Yeah. To a point on the number 10. I mean, you now have Windows 10, Android 10, mac OS 10. Lots of 10s when it comes to software and technology, We've also got a couple of devices out there that are 10s so. Right [UNKNOWN] we made 10 that foldable phone also with an X, Yep [UNKNOWN] Galaxy Note 10, Note 10, S10. I feel like maybe we're just going to reach a stage where what happens when we get into the 11ies. That'd be a great question, possibly for Apple in a few weeks. Yeah. So you will say September is going to change all of our worlds.
