Android 10, not Android Queijadinha

Android will no longer be associated with those sweet treats we crave.

Following the pattern set out for the past few years the new addition should have been a Q, however Android have opted out, meaning the next rendition will be titled “10”.

Google have claimed they have ditched this style of update as it is because it made it difficult for users to know which version they were on, but we think its because they didn’t want to use Queijadinha.

Queijadinha is a kind of sweet which originated in Portugal, and is common in Brazil. This candy was essentially improved during the colonial period in the farms of colonial Brazil and it was very influenced by the African slave culture.

The new edition, which will be released later this year, will be called Android 10.

Jellybean, Kitkat and Lollipop.

“This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year,” Google said in a blog.

“But we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community.”

As examples, Google said L and R were “not distinguishable when spoken in some languages”.

“As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world,” it said.
