Poll: what do you think about the Android 7 Nougat name?


Each major Android build comes with a dessert code name, each one starting with the next letter in the alphabet. For fans of Google's OS, the speculation and debating over what the next Android name might be has turned into a fun past-time with its own tense buildup. It may seem a trivial thing that we care about the name of an update as much as we do about the features it upgrades, but hey – no one is immune to hype.

Google has acknowledged the community's excitement over the Android naming schemes and has done its fair share of trolling and misleading speculators in the past, this year included. We were often thrown to different directions, either by one too many mentions of nut brittle, a bunch of Nutella name drops, and some more little tricks. However, it's fairly safe to say that not many expected a name like “nougat”. If you check out the popularity of the phrase “how to pronounce nougat” in Google Trends, you will notice a ridiculously large spike indicating that a lot of people were taken by surprise, some have even been vocal about not liking Google's choice of name.

What's your take on this? Are you perfectly fine with nougat, or would you have wanted Nutella to be Android 7's official name? Or do you not care about such trivial things at all?

Do you like the name Nougat for Android 7?

That name isn't sitting well with me. Not like it matters anyways, but it just seems off compared to previous names.

I think Nanaimo would be better. I love Nanaimo Bars, and they are really good, and taste even better.

Android Nutella or better, Android Nadella.

Why so many insist upon this Nutella story? This is a product name, not a desert. If Google wanted to name Android 7.0 Nutella, they would have to go into a licensing agreement as they did with KitKat. Apparently they didn't see any reason to get into such deal, so that's that. Stop with this Nutella business! From all the other available N deserts, Nougat is one of the most well globally and relatively easy to pronounce. Ah, one more thing, Nachos is no desert.

Maybe because Nutella is tastier. I don't mind Nougat though.

Yup, Nutella not being a desert is probably one of the biggest reasons it was dismissed by Google.

Who was actually expecting Nutella? Just because of KitKat we're now expecting corporate sponsorship for any given version? Suppose the Nutella brand was simply out of Google's price range, or Nutella simply didn't want to lend their brand altogether? PS: I also do not much care for Nougat, and would prefer Nutella.

Those of you who didn't vote 'don't care', switch to iOS please. If the name of the operating system is a concern, you're using the phone for the wrong reason.

Huh? Your second statement contradicts your first, if I am reading it correctly. I don't care, I just want the update when it officially becomes available.

If the NAME of the operating system is a concern, not the platform. If iOS was named POS, it would still perform the same. It's not like because the OS is named Nougat it's gonna be worse but if was Nutella, Nestle, Now & Later.....it would be better.

read your comment again.. "Those of you who didn't vote 'don't care', switch to iOS please"

Let me walk you all though this one: "Those of you who didn't vote 'don't care', switch to iOS please" Meaning, with iOS it's just a number that changes. iOS 5, 6, 7........therefore, if the NAME of the operating system is a concern & not the features or performance, then switch to iOS because there's no name to worry about changing. They could call it Android Nincompoop, Nitwit, Nimrod, Nutbust, Numbnuts......I don't care. As long as the isht works & the features are fly I don't give a damn. Hell when I learned what Froyo meant Jellybean was the current OS & Kit Katt was on its way.

"And how much did Tim Cook pay you to troll like this? May I ask ??" I've been Android since day one. OG Droid, Droid 2, Droid X2, Droid RAZR Maxx, Droid Maxx, Note 3, currently in the Note 4 & am getting the Note 7 next month. So not trolling. Get your facts straight, Member since less than a month ago. People are trippin off of the name of the operating system when the performance is what's important. I know it was a poll but damn.

Hypocrite: posted onyesterday, 11:112 10. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2739; Member since: 05 Apr 2013) I don't care what it is called posted onyesterday, 12:271 ReportReply 18. deviceguy2016 (Posts: 350; Member since: 16 Jun 2016) Rebel I agree name, who cares, as long as it works, for god sake marshmallow is just barely here, just hope OS don't rush things like apples failures That's all I've been saying while emphasizing there's no reason to worry about the name of the operating system with iOS since there is no name. I don't expect you to understand though cause you don't know the difference between YOU'RE & YOUR so I'll just leave you with this: a wise man told me don't argue with fools, cause people from a distance can't tell whose who.
