Android N is now Android Nougat

Google has finally announced what Android N stands for, it's officially now Android Nougat. Google hadn't thought things through when they started naming their releases after food products and probably wasn't thinking they'd still be naming products after dessert foods years later and coming up with a name that starts with N proved to be tough. Hopefully they've started to think about what food starts with O. The Verge has the story.

Nougat is the latest dessert-themed version of Android, due out later this summer. The release, initially announced in March and currently on its second (and mostly stable) beta, brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year. The release also has Daydream, Google's new VR platform, baked in, though it'll only be supported by Daydream-ready handsets running the OS.
