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.

    4. Anonymous says:

      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

      1. Fides_RYM says:

        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

    5. Fides_RYM says:

      Android Muffin it is….

    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.
