And now, the company has revealed some details about Android 14, which is slated for release in 2023. While most of the information about Android 14 is still kept confidential, Google has revealed interesting details:
2022 was a big year for fans Android. The The Google Coming out later this year, Android 13 is the latest version of the mobile operating system. And now, the company has revealed some details about Android 14, which is slated for release in 2023. While most of the information about Android 14 is still kept confidential, Google has revealed interesting details:
We’ve been hearing some rumors about Android 13 and next month, when Google I/O 2022 kicks off on Wednesday, May 11, we’re supposed to see a presentation on the upcoming Android release, which is known internally as “Tiramisu” O. Google has assigned a candy name to each release. of Android versions, starting with Android 1.5, which was named Cupcake dessert in April 2009.
Candy codename for Android 14 has been revealed by AOSP
This practice continued as the next version of Android, released on September 15, 2009, was called Donut Candy. Every year until Android 10, Google assigned a candy name to the latest version of Android in alphabetical order, which became the official name of the year. Just saying and reading these names should bring back waves of nostalgia. Hearing the name Cupcake brought back memories of a story this author wrote in March 2009 about Android getting a default QWERTY in the Android Cupcake update.
AOSP is changing the internal codename of Android “14” to “Upside Down Cake”.
A major production takes place every year as a statue representing the latest official version of Android is placed in the Googleplex at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View California. Recently, these statues were removed from the garden in which they were placed. Some hope that Google will just want to get it back before moving it to Google I/O.
We will provide you with a complete list of desserts at any given time. But we want to point out that sometimes Google has teamed up with a candy company to use a popular product as the official name for Android. In 2013 the Android KitKat update appeared in a promotion that included the popular candy bar, and the world-famous Oreo cookie was used with Android 8 and Android 8.1 in 2017.
In 2019, Android started using numeric version numbers as official version names. This year, the candy’s name was supposed to start with the letter “Q”, which made things very difficult to say the least. Google seems to have taken this as a signal to end this practice, although within Google, Android 10 has been dubbed “Quince Tart”.
Google reveals the name of Android 14 candy
Google continues to use numbers for its official Android launch names, with candy names used only by Google employees within the company. For example, Android 11 and Android 12 inside the HQs are known as Red Velvet Cake and Snow Cone, respectively. The mention of the Tiramisu codename for Android 13 was spotted on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) website.
Not expected to be released until 2023, Android 14 was recently given the internal candy name Upside Down Cake. A photo was published by the AOSP website revealing the name by 9to5Google. With the letters U, V, W, X, Y, and Z remaining for Android 15-Android 20, Google’s brightest minds will have to work on creating the right candy codenames in the near future.
Here is a list of Android candy code names we promised:
- Android Cupcake 1.5.1 Update
- Android Donut 1.6.
- Android Eclair 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.1.
- Android Froyo 2.2-2.2.3.

Personally, the dessert names that bring back the most memories to me are Eclair, FroYo, and Gingerbread. FroYo and Gingerbread were the versions of Android that powered many of the best Android phones at the time, such as Motorola DROID, Nexus One, HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola DROID X, LG Revolution, Samsung Nexus S.
Of course, all of these devices are paralyzed compared to current smartphones, but at the time, they all looked amazing.
