Android N is now 'Android Nougat'

 Google has announced that the latest version of Android operating system Android N will now go by "Android Nougat".

 
"Introducing #AndroidNougat. Thank you, world, for all your sweet name ideas! #AndroidNReveal," the company wrote.
 
Announcement comes after the company asked for suggestions saying that users could submit suggestions for the name online. Nougat is the latest dessert-themed version of Android due out later this summer. 
 
The release brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year, technology website The Verge reported.
