What do you think Android O will be called? [Poll of the Week]

It's about time for Google to announce the official name for Android 8.0. What do you think it will be?

Published onJuly 10, 2017

Last week's poll summary: Alright, we heard ya. Out of over 20,700 total votes, 54.6% of our readers said their favorite Android launcher is Nova Launcher, followed by Action Launcher and Google Now Launcher, both with 14.4% of the votes. 4.8% said they prefer to use Evie Launcher, while 3.7% said their favorite is Arrow Launcher.

It’s about that time of the year — Google is putting the finishing touches on Android 8.0, and we should expect the final developer preview to roll out to devices sometime in mid-July (so, any day now). While the final version of Android O likely won’t land until sometime in August, we can expect Google to reveal the official Android O name sometime very soon. For reference, the name Android Nougat was revealed on June 30, 2016.

So what’s Android O going to be called? Most people seem to think it’ll be called Android Oreo, which actually wouldn’t be too farfetched for Google. Android 4.4 was called KitKat, after all, and through that partnership we saw Android-branded KitKat bars in stores all around the world. As much as I want the name Oreo for the next version of Android, I really don’t need another reason to buy Oreos at the grocery store.

How stable is the third Android O developer preview?

Oatmeal Cookie is another obvious choice. Apparently Google is using this as an internal Android 8.0 codename, though internal codenames usually differ from public names. As a reminder, Android 4.4 was codenamed Key Lime Pie, Android L was Lemon Meringue Pie, and Android N was codenamed New York Cheesecake.

What do you think Android O will be called? My money’s on Oreo, though it really could be anything (the last thing I expected for Android N was Nougat). Cast your vote in the poll, and speak up in the comments if your option isn’t represented below.
