Android 13: its code name is Tiramisu
Android 13 is already starting to make people talk about it. Indeed, Google has already chosen its code name: it is Tiramisu. A name for a dessert that goes into the great tradition of the OS. Even though it has been a bit publicly overlooked lately, it is still used internally.
Do you like tiramisu? It is true that this Italian dessert which mixes mascarpone, biscuit, amaretto and coffee has its followers. Google is apparently one of them, since Android version 13 will adopt this code name.
While Android 12 crystallizes all the attentions, Google is already working on the next version and XDA Developpers noticed that it already had its little code name. An internal note indeed asks to change the name of the platform from “T to Tiramisu”. The name of the Italian dessert will not be used in the company’s communication, that’s for sure, but internally. A fact that might seem trivial, but which is actually a nice little nod that should please fans.
Android Tiramisu will succeed Android 12 Snow Cone
Indeed, since almost its beginnings, Android has used dessert names to name its versions. The first was version 1.5, named Cupcake. Then, each advance had its cake: Donut for 1.6, Eclair for 2.0, Froyo for 2.2, etc… This tradition continued until Android 9, nicknamed Pie, then was abandoned by Google, at least in its marketing.
Android 12: release date, compatible smartphones, news, all about the update
The Mountain View firm always uses candy names sweetened internally to name its builds. Android 10 is called for example Quince Tart, Android 11 Red Velvet Cake and Android 12 Snow Cone. Android 13 will therefore be in this lineage by highlighting tiramisu.
Of course, you won’t hear the term tiramisu pronounced by Google to introduce Android 13 when the time is right and that’s a bit of a shame. It’s a tradition that fans liked a lot but was a bit of a developer joke. Now it’s over, since we have numbers and only numbers to evoke Android.
