Google’s Android O could likely be called ‘Oatmeal Cookie’ and not ‘Oreo’

Android 8.0 Oatmeal Cookie

It’s that time of the year when all the Android enthusiasts get excited about the name of the next version of Android. So, what is it going to be called “Oreo” or “Oatmeal Cookie?”

Well, according to a new report from myce, it could very well be called as the Oatmeal Cookie. The report suggests that there are multiple mentions of “oc-dev” in Android’s source code as well as a reference to “OC-MR1.”

While this doesn’t necessarily mean that “oc” is an abbreviation to Oatmeal Cookie, we just can’t ignore the possibility. Perhaps, it could also mean “Oreo Cookie.” But, for now, the former seems to be more plausible.

Reason being, a bunch of Twitter users pointed out that there were references to “oatmeal_cookie” in the code used by Google in I/O presentation slides.

So, it almost feels certain that Android 8.0 will be called Oatmeal Cookie. But again, we are not certain just yet. So, take it with a pinch of salt.
