Google is making Android boring. Blinding white play store and no quirky names for Android versions. If they can't find a suitable dessert name that starts with Q, just simply call it Android Q!

No. It's called regressing and betraying your fundamentals.

That move is not an Apple move. It's called growing up. Man up you tech nerds. Quirkiness is no longer the in-thing for tech.

Well, in some countries, most people don't even know what a Marshmallow is... heck, there might not even be a translation for it in their language either. Android... Nougat? Nu-gaht? Nu-git? I bet most don't even know what a nougat is anyway, haha. People saying "generic" and "turning into Apple", pure nonsense... while I'll slightly miss the quirky names of Android, I feel this move was for the better.

Dessert names are funny (and delicious)! is it so difficult to find a dessert name starting with Q? In Costa Rica we have Queque, which means cake hahahah

well, hope this dont mean the fall of Android, cause what brings Android enthusiasts is the next thing, what be called and...turn this into numbers only is just to simplify, but for people who really love Android, this is a let down cause no more candy fancy names will be into system name.

And this new color pallet...well, now Android will be the next OS for people with color problems and invisuals and kids, and nothing more! i see people will abandon Android from now on cause of this kind of things.

Me personaly dont mind about color pallet cause is just a Pixel, vanilla thing...other brands i belive wont follow that and only change will be the mere robot color, period.

Now, 2020 is turn of a decade and we need new things, Google should finnaly bring Fuschia OS to the public and make that the first OS and turn Android into secondary priority.

Android and iOS just have bring all it can to the table, there's no more inovation or features that both can bring so...Fuschia is the way to go now...

Can't get more generic than that.

Google has lost the plot regarding all of their products.
