With a dearth of choices, your first guess was most likely proper

Android 13 could be very a lot nonetheless in improvement (as we wait not-so-patiently for Beta 1 to lastly land) however even with its secure launch nonetheless months off, items are already beginning to fall into place for further-out Android variations. One query we have been kicking round for some time now issues which dessert starting with the letter U is likely to be chosen as the event code identify for Android 14 — and it isn’t like there are a ton of apparent U-names to select from. In the present day we lastly get our reply, with Android 14 set to go by the code identify Upside Down Cake.

Google formally clarifies the code identify in some latest notes added to the AOSP (noticed by 9to5Google). Truthfully, that is the primary U-dessert we considered, mentioning it as a probable possibility again when affirmation arrived for Android 13’s Tiramisu identify. Even getting our U from “upside-down” seems like a little bit of a cheat, however it’s not like there have been a ton of different apparent choices. If we begin going worldwide with our dessert menu, that would begin opening issues up just a little, however in the end it is under no circumstances shocking to see Google go on this path.


Dessert names was once a way more outstanding a part of new Android releases, and you will nonetheless hear long-time customers affectionately reference previous variations like Lollipop or ICS. Even after we weren’t speaking in regards to the dessert itself, it was nonetheless frequent to seek advice from its letter: Android M, or Android Q. However for the launch of Android 10 in 2019, Google took a step again from this affiliation, as an alternative embracing the numerical model as the popular approach to speak about Android.

That shift did make a complete lot of sense — it is clear, it is accessible, and actually is simply much more professional-sounding — however for these of us who lengthy for the times when there was just a bit extra “enjoyable” in Android improvement , at the very least the desserts stay on as inside code names.

Android 15 is a good distance off, however does anybody wish to make any bets as to what our V-name is likely to be? Vanilla-something could possibly be apparent, or will Google take us in a brand new path? Your guess is pretty much as good as ours.
