GOOGLE, OREO LAUNCH ANDROID OREO
Google revealed that the next version of its mobile operating system, Android, is named after the world's favourite cookie – Android Oreo. Historically, Google has named each successive Android release after sweet treats like Eclair, Ice Cream Sandwich and, most recently, Nougat. The Android Oreo release marks a global collaboration between the Oreo brand and Google, which kicked off with the debut of the Android Oreo superhero – a new character who personifies the powers of this iconic duo and the features of the new operating system.
Poised to be a pop culture icon, Android Oreo channels the playfulness of Oreo and intelligence of Android to spread joy throughout the world. And, like all iconic superheroes, Android Oreo originated from a wondrous and unique moment in time: the 2017 total solar eclipse that touched the United States.
