Google Just Released A Cute Video Teasing The Name Of Android 'L'
Google is expected to release the latest version of its mobile operating system sometime this month, and the company just published a fun video teasing the new name.
Google traditionally names its products after sweet treats - KitKat, Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb, Gingerbread, etc. - and when it referred to the next big update as Android "L" at this year's I/O conference, people started guessing.
Now, Google has added to the hype itself.
The scene starts in a casting room for sweets that start with the letter L:
Lemon meringue pie is prepping with jumping-jacks:
Lava cake and lady finger look nervous:
Lemon Drop practices looking sweet:
And dark-horse L-candidate Oreo looks scarily determined:
Of course, Google doesn't actually reveal what the name of Android 5.0 will be:
But leaves us in suspense:
The latest rumor we heard about the name was actually that the L stood for "licorice." IBTimes spotted a Google+ post from Giovanni Calabrese, owner of the sculpting firm that makes the Android-themed lawn states at Google's headquarters.
The post, since deleted, read "What's with all the boxes of licorice? #thingstheTSAsays #googlebound #googlelawnsculptures." Interesting...
