Android N is Nougat!!!

After what has seemed like the longest wait since the last time we had to wait for an Android nickname, we now know what Android N will be called.

Nougat.

Google announced the latest nickname — its 12th — live from its campus in Mountain View, Calif., sharing the tasty treat on Snapchat, but not before a lengthy tease. Through the Android statue garden, into some "top-secret Android N labs." And finally, we got it.

Nougat, for those unfamiliar, is a confectionary treat loaded with sugar or honey. It usually includes some sort of roasted nuts, and occasionally fruit. Whipped egg whites may be involved as well.

The next trick is going to get people to actually pronounce "nougat" correctly.

Here's the rundown of every Android nickname we've had:

  • Cupcake: Android 1.5
  • Donut: Android 1.6
  • Eclair: Android 2.0-2.1
  • Froyo: Android 2.2
  • Gingerbread: Android 2.3.3 to 2.3.7
  • Honeycomb: Android 3.x
  • Ice Cream Sandwich: Android 4.0.3 to 4.0.4
  • Jelly Bean: Android 4.1 to 4.3
  • KitKat: Android 4.4r
  • Lollipop: Android 5.0 to 5.1
  • Marshmallow: Android 6.0
  • Nougat: Android 7.0

  • Still convinced it's either Nutella or Nutter Butter... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I really wanted Nutella but now I want Nutter Butter :D
  • I believe both of those names are trademarked.
  • And kitkat wasn't?
  • They made a deal with Google. Doesn't mean that it would happen all the time.
  • Exactly! That's how business works. Google has to choose a desert word that is not trade marked. If it's a trade marked name then they have to get approval from the company that owns the trademark and sign an agreement. In which case for Nutella would be Ferraro company and they would be entitled to a revenue percentage for using their trademark. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Thanks for the obvious lesson. Everyone knows this already. They did it with Kat Kat, they could do it again.
  • ... IF one of those companies was will to strike a mutually beneficial deal with Google or be associated with the Android operating system at all. Including possibly having to make sure there was no licensing issues in markets across the globe. It was a miracle kitkat happened and it will probably never happen again.

  • Maybe they are saving their money for paying for use of "Oreo." Posted via the Android Central App
  • yep! that sounds about right to me! oreo would be cool for "O"!
  • So glad it wasn't those. Nought works for me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Gee thanks for telling us...now I can sleep.
  • How about they break from tradition and call it Android Next?
  • No Posted via the Android Central App

  • Still clinging to my outside bet of "Nut Brittle" if it is, I'll win sooooo much internet points. (Hey, our currency isn't doing so hot right now, it's this or doge coin) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nut Brittle was actually the response text during the keynote at I/O
  • Oh really? I didn't know that. I was saying it before I/O so I'd have been happy to have seen that. Oh well, I was wrong anyway. Posted via the Android Central App
  • New York Cheesecake would probably be too much to ask for...
  • I could see them doing NYC just like they did for Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Naming your software "Brittle" is just asking for it. :) Edit: somehow replied to the wrong comment. :(
  • Nitrocellulose. It's not a dessert, but it's fun. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm going to guess none of those in the video although Neapolitan had a nice flow
  • BOOG!
  • Nice. Love ween seen em live twice. Check out FREEMAN if you haven't already
  • I like it, doesn't sound stupid. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wanted that one too. Use a tri-colored mascot, and it kinda relates to ICS.
  • Nerds!
  • Winner!!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I REALLY hope so. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wanted it to be "Nerds" :( Posted via the Android Central App
  • My too...Imagine a bunch of cute nerdroids all over the internt

  • Necco Wafer....for those times you just want your OS to taste like chalk
  • Lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • Seriously hope it's not a branded name. I don't want them to start selling naming rights to companies, which will inevitably happen if they go that route.
  • I want Nachos. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nitro brew? Posted via my LG G5
  • How about straight up "nut" I can't wait for the announcement! Life as we know it will be forever altered! Posted via the Android Central App
  • My money is still on Nectarine, and my 2nd choice was always Neapolitan, although it's probably not a good sign that both showed up in their teaser. EDIT: Ah, Nougat. That makes sense. Oh well, I'm batting a cool 0 on names so far. lol
  • Nutella?
  • Nougat?
  • Nitrogen ice-cream..... Hehehehehe Posted via the Android Central App
  • Neyyappam....:
  • 1+ Posted via the Android Central App
  • nice reveal. It was on snapchat
  • Nougat is here Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nope. It was Nougat. Well, I'm a little bummed that it wasn't Nutella, but congrats to those who predicted it.
  • Now let's all argue about how it's pronounced! Posted via the Android Central App
  • 'Nugget' or 'Nu-Gaa' according to Oxford youtube link...I wish it was nutella too (or nanimo)
  • I'm going with "Nuuoope, that's a silly word, not gonna try"
  • Many people (at least here in the US) do a combo of both... Nu-get. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/nougat
  • Well, nougat isn't an English word. It's French (although nougat itself is Spanish, and the real name is turrón).
    Therefore the only acceptable pronunciation is the French one, "noo-gah".
    "nuget" is just the bastardised way of speaking it, coming to you from the same people who can't pronounce aluminium and who think "mobile" is pronounced "mob'le" ahahahah Posted via the Android Central App
  • You realize the word is 'aluminum,; not 'aluminium,' right? We pronounce it right. The other one is (according to the Oxford English dictionary) the British way of pronouncing Aluminum. Jus' sayin'.
  • No. The word is aluminium. Check the dictionary. That's the word in ENGLISH. Last I heard, "American" is not a language ;) Also, there's no "British way" of saying things. There's the correct way of speaking ENGLISH, and the bastardised way ;) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Right… And English is a bastardized (yeah, with "z") version of a mix of Anglo-Frisian (Anglo-Saxon) and French (Norman), so have your pick of bastardization all the way back. Everything is a bastardized version of something else. When you learn linguistics, specifically, historical linguistic, and learn about language and sound change, then you can sound smart. Plus, we have more nuclear weapons, so that settles it. Just one bomb and let's see who says what how… :-) (Though I agree that it's [noo-gah], as the closest candidate, that is. By the way, that's not even correct French pronunciation if you want to talk about bastardization. Even in your English it's a bastardization. The "a" in French, in that word, is not the "a" in "ah." Just saying…)
  • Don't check the dictionary, check the naming of chemical elements as defined by IUPAC.
    It's Aluminium
    Also it's Sulfur, not Sulphur
  • Aluminium is dumb. It's aluminum Posted via the Android Central App
  • In JamesIckelish you call it whatever you want. In ENGLISH it's aluminium ;P
  • No
  • When France starts saying Quarter Pounder with Cheese, as god and Ray Kroc intended, I'll pronounce it noo-ga. Otherwise I'm sticking with noo-get.
  • I was really hoping they would stick with Namey McNameface
  • New it!! Didn't see the Nutella though. That would have been a good one too Posted via note 4, +32 gig micro SD and 2× batteries...because I can.
  • Nougat...... (think deeply) Seems a little lame.. Posted via some random piece of tech.. (The culprit usually being a Nexus 6P)
  • Agreed. Posted via the Android Central App on my Nexus 6P
  • They called it Nougat but it will be better if they called it nescafe
  • Name it after a disgusting coffee, made by a company with some truly egregious ethical practises? Kitkat was bad enough, let's leave Nestlé to ruin the rain forest and foist baby formula onto those who don't need it without any help from us. Posted via the Android Central App
  • oh no
    Google derped again
    worst company ever
  • What a terrible name, this is the worst one yet Posted via the Android Central App
  • One could say Carlos is a terrible name. Get over it man, its just a f'n name. All that matters is what's behind the name.
  • You get over my comment and move on son. Posted via the Android Central App
  • lol
  • Carlos is a terrible name
  • I would say KitKat is. Android shouldn't have brand-name names. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Worse than the branded name of "kit kat"? I think not.
  • I agree I think nougat is stupid. I mean it isn't even a dessert. It's something they put in candy bars lol. I think it sounds dumb too but as long as it brings the features we want that's all that matters I guess. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nougat is as much of a dessert as Kit-Kat is. Posted via Android Central App
  • Ummm .... Honeycomb is omitted from your list of "every Android nickname". As much as AndroidCentral seems to want to pretend it never existed (see: AC T-shirts), it's a nicknamed Android release and should be listed. It was instrumental in Android's push to tablets and paved the way for later integration of the tablet and phone interfaces.
  • They know man. Posted via my LG G5
  • They know what?
  • Ahhh, your post, and everything mentioned. Posted via my LG G5
  • I still have a tab that stopped updating at Honeycomb! It doesn't (the OS) suck that bad...
  • god I hate nougat with a passion... oh well. i think nectar or neopolitan would have been a better name
  • It's Nougat Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nougat? I hate it. Ha.
  • I voted for the right one. Yes! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Me too haha
  • Is that a pokèmon? Posted via the Android Central App
  • It should be. Posted via my LG G5
  • These Android statues have gotten very boring since Lollipop was announced. Perhaps it's a marketing move to keep the green mascot visible, but some creativity would be welcomed. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yes!, I was expecting an Android made of nougat, like ICS when it was launched
  • Did anyone else besides me see the AndroidCentral Tweet announcing "It's Neopolitan!!!" followed immediately by "It's Android Nougat!!!"? I think someone here REEALLLLLLY wanted a scoop of three flavors of ice cream... LOL
  • I personally kind of thought that it would be nutella but nougat isn't that bad. It goes along the sweet line of foods.
  • I was hoping for Nutella, it just seemed right to me, but Nougat sounds fine. Posted via the Android Central App
  • In the above link, the female voice pronounces it as nugget. WTF? More like "Noo-get" https://www.google.com/#q=define+nougat
    nou·gat ˈno͞oɡət
    noun
    noun nougat
    a candy made from sugar or honey, nuts, and egg white.
  • That video confused me as well. I always thought it was Nu-get / New-get, which is like a combo of the two pronunciations in the video. So now I know 3 different pronunciations and don't know which is correct. I already don't like the name for that reason. Can't speak it out loud without potentially sounding like an idiot. edit: This site agrees with us on the US pronunciation (with audio samples). Don't pay attention to that wrong video up top. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/nougat
  • I see now, it's the American pronunciation.
  • Android "noo-get" (pronounced "no get" as in, "you won't get it") is the android version people on Verizon will get Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not a surprise haha. I was still hoping for Nutella, but this is definitely not unexpected.
  • Nougat has to be the ugliest "sweet treat". Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm still referring to it as just N. I don't ever call 6.0 Marshmallow. I call it M or MM. Lol, I dunno, it just seems cooler. :)
  • Kind of a disappointing name, but I guess fitting since the release isn't that exciting either.
  • That video clears up nothing on how it should be pronounced. Are both pronounciations in the video correct? And honestly, are we in the 1800's all of a sudden? Who has even had one of these things? Funny that the article had to list the ingredients to help us know what the crap it is.
  • Ever have a Three Musketeers bar? Or most of the chocolates in a box of Whitman's Samplers? If so, you've had nougat before, but it was just chocolate covered.
  • In the video, the woman's pronunciation is supposed to be the US pronunciation, but it's wrong, and the man's is the UK pronunciation. Listen to the audio clip here for the correct US pronunciation: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/nougat
  • I bet people just hearing 'nougat' will hear 'nugget' and Android N will just evolve into nugget. What is the big difference between pronouncing the two? Nugget. Nougat. Newget. Newgat. Nougit. Newgit.
  • I buy nougat all the time, similar to the one in the statue. Pretty sure I don't live in the 1800's. And if you've eaten Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Mars bars, or Baby Ruth bars then you have eaten nougat as well.
  • Ok, but tell me the last time you've walked into a store and thought to yourself 'Man I could sure go for some nougat right now'. Never. I told my wife about Android Nougat today and she looked at me like I was saying 'nugget' incorrectly, corrected me inquisitively, after which we said nougat several times and realized that google missed the boat. She started rattling off all these other N treats. I'm just saying, if google is trying to be cute and unique by naming their operating system generations by sweets, they should use names that people can relate to. Not names that article writers feel compelled to list the ingredients of, to try and get readers to realize what it is that they will be talking about for the next year.
  • Another ignorant mad that others aren't similarly sheltered.
  • Doesn't matter. Most people won't get Nougat on their phone until P comes around.
  • Certainly true on the Samsung upgrade path.
  • Just as an FYI, you forgot to add honeycomb into the list Posted via the Android Central App
  • Great! Majority of the world wont be able to pronounce it right.
  • Unless you have a Verizon Droid Turbo. Then it's pronounced "Never Gonna Get It" Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol.

  • Porque son tan vulgares? Verga coño e su madre.... (Wrong language, right?) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Well at least the statue matches the name, material design AND the treat: they're all complete sh*t. This will go down as one of Goggle's biggest branding fails of all time. The simple fact that they couldn't get a deal with Ferrero for Android Nutella shows well they no longer have the power they think they have. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nope
  • Lol I don't think that's how it went down. Google has about as much power as any company would need. Besides,Nutella wasn't even a good name, the whole OS is practically nothing but white. It shouldn't have been an N to begin with. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You forgot honeycomb. It still follows the line even if the source wasn't released.
  • Yes, red headed stepchild no one around here likes to mention Posted via the Android Central App

  • No! Not Nutterbutter? Nor Narshmallow? Never! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like nougat
  • Android O will be OREO!! S7 edge/AC app
  • Would make sense. It keeps the tradition of sh*tty names. ;P Posted via the Android Central App
  • when will the ATT Note 5 gets its N update? /sarcasm
  • *N*ever Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why did you leave out Honeycomb. I know it was bad and mainly for tablets... but it is still Android correct?
  • So let's move on. Android O .. What will it be... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Well, not Oreo, that's for sure. Though maybe since Oreo is owned by Nabisco, an American Company, Google will be able to bribe them more easily to get the branding rights for cheap...which they clearly didn't manage to do with Nutella and Ferrero.
  • It's pronounced "new-gut". DWI
  • Nougat is much better than Nutella!!
    I like nougat covered in dark chocolate!!!
  • Awesome that was my suggestion... Kudos to who did the same Posted via the Android Central App
  • So Android Honeycomb never existed?! It was awesome at the time. For shame AC... Posted via LG V10
  • It just went from 2.0 to 4.0? Riiiiiight.. Posted via LG V10
  • Great! I guessed the Nougat..that means I am qualified for whatever giveaway AC was cooking up... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why a lot of people wanted the name being Nutella?, sounds so artificial...otherwise Nougat is recognized globally, and it is not a brand, is just a name, it fits perfectly with the Android family; Kitkat was fine, yes, but, I hope they dont use brand names anymore.
  • I agree! Posted via the Android Central App
  • "otherwise Nougat is recognized globally" THAT is where you're completely wrong. 1 - Nutella is a beloved sweet WORLDWIDE. I know of no one with a soul who dislikes Nutella. 2 - Nougat is NOT recognised globally besause it's not even the name used in a ton of languages.
    - Starting with Spanish (the world's second most spoken language) - from where "nougat" originates (Spain) - where the name is TURRÓN.
    - In Portuguese (the world's six most spoken language) it's called TORRÃO.
    - In Italian it's also called TORRONE.
    - In Russian it's called Нуга́.
    Etc etc. I think you get the picture. Point is, "nougat" is NOT an international name. Not that Google gives a sh*t. Apart from KitKat, no other version of Android had international names. So the "globally recognised" argument is bollocks. "Kitkat was fine, yes, but, I hope they dont use brand names anymore." Good luck finding a sweet treat starting with "o" that isn't Oreo.
    Otherwise, as Alex pointed out on Twitter, you can start learning how to pronounce Ontbijtkoek.
  • +1
  • 1 - I don’t like Nutella, and a lot of my friends share my opinion; my mother doesn’t know what Nutella is for example...if I say the word "Nutella" to my grandma I’m sure she will think that is a kind of plant...
    2 - All the Android names are in English and all people know how are their names in their own languages, so, that point has no sense...I can recognize one by one and I don’t need check them on internet…Cupcake (Magdalena), Donut (Rosquilla), Eclair (Pepito, this one is very tasty, we call it just "Factura" in my country), Froyo (Yogurt Helado), Gingerbread (Galletita de jengibre), Honeycomb (Panal -well, this is not a dessert...), Ice Cream Sandwich (sándwich de helado), Jelly Bean (We call it Gomitas), Kitkat (I didn’t remember the existence of this one until Android 4.4 was launched, now I see it everywhere, and is very tasty...and expensive), Lollipop (Chupetin - at least in my country), Marshmallow (Malvavisco, I don’t like them) and finally Nougat (Turrón).
    So if the name is not enough to make it understandable you have the sculptures too, that’s the way I recognize all of them, they make it way explicit, I mean, when I saw the Android standing up at those pieces of Nougat I automatically knew that it was "Turrón" in my language, plus, I showed it to my mom (54 years old) and likes me she automatically recognized that it was a "Turrón" too
    So I don’t think that the language is a barrier to know what is the dessert that Android represents, they make it very easy, if my mom and my grandma know what are the names of each version of Android and know what a Nougat is (when they don’t know English), I’m sure that everybody that see the sculpture discover what it is easily. PD: With O? Easy, Orange Pie, or maybe you think that nobody knows what is a Orange Pie cuz the name is in english...or maybe is very hard to realize what is the name if you see a giant Android sculpture with a literally orange pie on his hands with a slice of orange in the middle of the pie...hope people on China knows what is a Orange Pie...
  • Nobody cares about Britain. Make your own OS for once then you can name it what you want.
  • I'm glad it was not Nutella. Yuck, I don't even like the stuff. Posted via Android Central App
  • To the point of number 2, a proper noun (name) is the same no matter what language you are speaking. You could be speaking Klinon and you say Blah blah blah ANDROID NOUGAT because that's how that works. People from Spain with the name Martinez don't suddenly become the smiths when they land here do they? Who cares what the word for something is, once it is the name of the operating system it is a proper name, thus noun, thus does not translate at all, it stays what it is. They really could have called it Nutballjumpercabletissuepaper and it would stay that in all languages.
  • I actually said nectarine.....nougat is kinda wack....but hey it is what it is Posted via the Android Central App
  • YAY! I submitted Nougat!!!
  • No, wait - I decided it was too hard to pronounce and changed it to Nectar.

  • Why wasn't it Nectar ? Posted via the Android Central App from my Samsung Galaxy S6 Active
  • Us here in Scandinavia doesn't really see this as nougat. In Sweden we call it French nougat I think. Nougat for us is more or less solid Nutella. So without the statue, that's what I see.
  • Oh how much I agree! I'm not from Sweden but I always thought of nougat as either Nutella type nougat or caramel nougat. The egg fluff stuff, I just call it fluff. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Still won't acknowledge Honeycomb in your list? Posted via the Android Central App
  • They should've called it Android Nope, or Android Next, as in, "Nope, you won't see it on your phone until next year." Unless you get a Nexus, that is. Posted via the Android Central App

  • Get upset at your oem or Carrier or buy a Nexus Posted via the Android Central App
  • So get a Nexus. Or complain to your carrier as already mentioned:) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why did they leave honeycomb of the list?
  • Because Honeycomb was just for tablets. Sort of off-the-path-thing. I would personally include it, but I don't have a problem with it being left out. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The problem is the use of the word "every". If you mean it, include Honeycomb in the list. If you don't mean it, don't use "every" in the intro to the list. "Here's the rundown of every Android nickname we've had" Posted via the Android Central App

  • Yeah it really makes things less appealing doesn't it lmao. I thought Neapolitan matched up perfectly with this whole material craze. I think I prefer just N over all options though. Posted via the Android Central App
  • How soon before new Nexus's arrive? That is the big question. I also voted for Nougat during the Android IO presentation. Maybe even the first voter. Feels good to have it chosen.
  • Probly September if I was a betting man Posted via the Android Central App
  • Maybe in developer SDK's and those things, but you will not see it on a phone until January February at the earliest.
  • Oh thank Android! I voted for Nougat. Just sounds so perfect. Kudos to Google for choosing this nickname for Android N! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I will continue to pronounce it "new-gut" regardless of the proper way.
  • Really uninspiring statue. Don't mind the name but the statue is kind of lame, too simplistic and no site of an N in sight. #TeamFrosty Nexus 6P
  • Is it me or did they miss Honeycomb?

  • I can't see why people wouldn't be able to pronounce nougat lol. In any case,is Android really gonna shoot up to 7.0 already? Seems like a huge jump for an update that isn't completely exciting. I'm not really sure why that bothers me though. Posted via the Android Central App
  • That lame mascot is so transgender.
  • And Nougat is one heck of a dessert that gives hard time chewing....

  • They couldn't cough off the cash to get the Nutella name (I mean, they paid Nestlé big money for KitKat.) NOT COOL, GOOGLE. This phone has the AC App.
  • And when will LG v10 be getting this update... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Two words:

  • Nougat (the confection) is utterly awful. No one likes nougat. Naming your OS for deserts/treats is dumb. /Nerd on OS geeks
  • Nougat with a silent 't' as in Nouga or Nougar just like Cougar or Foobar, shubar, tubar, hooha, poo pa, floo fla, Columbia or Nividia
  • Called it.
    Did anyone seriously expect Nutella to be picked though? Seriously, KitKat was right out of left field. Blackberry Priv

  • No way in hell am I pronouncing it new-gah. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't know, the pronuciation seems wrong. There have been thousands of candy bar commercials in the past that have said NEW-get I think that's where I'm staying.
  • Next is Android O......as in Oatmeal, Onion, Oysters or Oranges.....LOL
  • Okay people, I'm here to point a few things out:
