Finding names of desserts has created more and more difficulty for the Android Developers, as not only were options dwindling, butthere are  global branding concerns were beginning to arise. Android is an OS used by billions people of people in every corner of the earth, and that resulted in some strange marketing considerations.

Thus Android Q would be named as Android 10 and its the final name.

Gandon says that the changes were important to make the wordmark more accessible and readable — especially on smaller screens. “In all honesty, when we did the acid test of doing it in really small spaces [like a screen or phone boxes], the current lettering was really a challenge,” she says. Most importantly, the wordmark is no longer green; it’s black, which makes it much more readable in more contexts.


Google will keep releasing versions of Android, they will continue to have version numbers, and nothing about the philosophy of the platform itself will change as a result.


Final words

Its just the name that is changed, and like its said earlier also above in the post, the core values of Google would remain same.Providing user a good user interface with as much as possible customisations.
