Android 8.0 Will be Named "Oreo"
Google today announced that "Oreo" will be the full name of Android version 8. Google has made a tradition of giving each major version of the OS an official nickname, in alphabetical order. The previous three versions were named Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat. Before that was KitKat, the last time a trademarked brand name was used. Android 8.0 "Oreo" was announced earlier this year and has been available in beta since May. It's expected to be available to the public soon.
