Google’s Android VP Dave Burke reveals Android 11 internal dessert name is ‘Red Velvet Cake’
All of us now know that Google has stopped giving the dessert names to its Android versions since last year. But did you know the company still names the Android Versions? Yes, the company still names the new Android Versions to use them internally. As earlier, it was known that Google is releasing its Android 10 version without a public dessert name but it is used as “Quince Tart” internally.
According to Android Police, Android VP Dave Burke hints that there are a few surprises left that haven’t been announced yet. While the dessert names stopped being used for public releases, Google was still internally using them. Dave Burke has once again revealed an internal dessert nickname. Google is referring too Android 11 as “RVC” or “Red Velvet Cake.”
Alongside the (nick)name reveal, Burke also used the podcast to tease new features coming to Android 11 that we haven’t yet seen in the beta releases. “Since parts of Android are updateable, it allows us to also offer things that don’t have to be baked into the beta. We are also working on a few things I’m quite excited about that will be appearing by the end of the summer, sort of 4-6 weeks,” he said.
However, the Nickname for the Android 11 Red Velvet Cake will only be used internally at Google and it may won’t come up for any public release. Up from cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, froyo, gingerbread, honeycomb, ice cream sandwiches, jelly beans, KitKats, lollipops, marshmallows, Nauguats, Oreos, and Pie Google has entertained its users.
