What is Android 15’s Dessert Name? Answered

After a whole lot of waiting, the first Android 15 Developer Preview build arrived back in February for Google Pixel devices. The brand has since been testing its next major OS udpate, with new beta releases. We installed it on the Pixel 7 Pro at the Beebom office, allowing us to finally confirm the Android 15 dessert name as “Vanilla Ice Cream”.

Talks of this codename have been making rounds of the internet since last year itself. But, this is as concrete and official as it gets. On its developer website, Google has posted a screenshot of Android Gradle plugin code which confirms the Android 15 codename.

Google has once again been loyal to its dessert-themed naming of its latest Android versions. For those unaware, the Android 14 codename was “Upside Down Cake.” Meanwhile, Android 13 came with the codename of “Tiramisu”.

However, it was not always mere codenames, and Google actually attached the dessert name to its Android version numbers as well. For example, Android 8 was officially called Oreo, while Android 9, Pie. With Android 10, Google officially ditched the dessert-themed naming, calling it just “Q”. However, internally, Android 10 was being called “Quince Tart” by Google. Ever since these Android monikers have just turned into internal codenames.
