Let's Discuss! What Will Google Call Android M?

Image source: amongtech
Last week, Google officially confirmed the existence of the Google Android M – Android M, the next version of the mobile OS from Google would be unveiled at the upcoming Google I/O conference. However the code name M has remained a puzzle.
We all know that Google gets the OS names from desserts and in order to celebrate new version release of Android, a giant mock-up of the dessert that matches the codename is usually delivered to the Google Campus and put on display.
In order to be able to crack the codename M – we would take a trip down memory lane to see the previous desserts and probably get a hint as to what dessert the Android M would be.
Let’s put on our thinking cap guys 🙂

    So far, they've all been edible substances….. so, in my own opinion, muffins or Mars sounds good in my ears like something Google would use, there hasn't been drinks tho, so I guess milkshake is off the table. Milky way too, which is our galaxy is off the table… the rest just doesn't fit somehow

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Same thing I thought – but so many people are saying Milkshake online

  2. vjsmiles says:

    milky way all the way…
    it appears LIKELY…

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      I see the rhymes you made — nice!

  3. Adaobi says:

    This is just making me hungry…
    Err…why is there a topless dude above me? … I've just read this out loud, that sounds dodgy as hell.

    Milky way it is – muffins is a cake so that is out of it – since it is not 5.2 Mars is out of it – milky way sounds new and fresh

      Dude, what part of Milky way not being edible didn't you understand?? Milky way is a galaxy…. Duh!!! And BTW,even if it is 5.2, 6.0 can never start with M…hence you're wrong on all counts. AMATEUR!!!

      1. Adaobi says:

        It's also the name of a chocolate bar made by Mars, which is very edible…

        1. Fides_RYM says:

          Seriously??? I was having a moment there….

        2. Fides_RYM says:

          Having just watched "known universe", a galaxy was the first thing dat came to my mind…. I'll just stick with my muffins, thank you

  6. Gori says:

    Miss techy, you made me hungry. ☺. But Google has really tried. Hard work truly is good.

  7. ebima says:

    If you ask me,Marble Cake is preferred

  8. Kay says:

    I don't know bout y'all buh me thinks they should settle for MEAT PIE 😀

    1. ebima says:

      Heheh! Someone's wants to eat meat pie this Morning.
      Just hope Miss T can take care of that

      1. Kay says:

        Lol…. She asked for my "humble" opinion 😉

  9. Kelvin says:

    Milk shake is very likely to be the Next

  10. vjsmiles says:

    on nairaland or in jere 🙂

  11. innocent says:

    Mocha….coming from someone who loves after effects

    1. Kelvin says:

      What is mocha?

      1. innocent says:

        Software linked with after effects n also standalone used as a 3d tracking solution..tracking is used by video editors for placing stuff in a shot or removing stuff like bad makeup and unwanted element in post works where other softwares fail…real badass…Buh in other news, it's just coffee

  12. Sir Stevoe says:

    LOL You took those words right outta my mouth!!!!!
    Milky Way it is! 🙂

  13. Sir Stevoe says:

    All these names making me hungry

  14. NiP!N says:

    IT’s surely Android MINT

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      how much are you willing to place on it

  15. Sheryl says:

    I love the idea of Android Macaron or Marshmallow. Lots of fun possibilities with the Android mascot design. Muffin sounds adorable, but might look too similar to Cupcake.
    Other “M” desserts I can think of (but with no chance of winning):-
    Meringue, Madeleine, Mille-feuille

  16. Fransiska says:

    My opinion: Marshmallow.
