Google reveals that Android N will be called... Android Nougat!
The developer previews of Android N have been available for a little while now, giving a tantalizing taste of what’s to come. But one thing has been missing: the name.
After months of teasing and misdirection -- there can't be many people who weren't expecting to see Android Nutella -- Google has officially announced that Android 7 (probably) will be known as Android Nougat.
We're now past the halfway mark in the alphabet, and it seems that Google may have been struggling to decide on a name all by itself. A few weeks back the company asked for suggestions, and ultimately it was Android Nougat that won out. It's due for release later this summer, so there's still a bit of a wait, but at least the naming mystery has been cleared up.
The announcement came via the Android Snapchat and Twitter accounts, and opinion was divided about whether it is a good choice or not:

Now, of course, there is the great debate. Pronunciation. Are you a noo-gat type of person, or do you prefer noo-gar?
