We finally know what the “N” in Android N stands for: Nougat!

Google always names its smartphone operating system updates after sweet treats — Cupcake, Doughnut, Lollipop, Marshmallow, to name a few — and this year’s release was no exception. CEO Sundar Pichai had asked people to submit suggestions at Google’s big developers’ conference in May, hence the tweet’s “thank you.”
N’s headlining features include multi-window support, better battery efficiency, and the ability to reply to messages straight from their notification. It will be available this summer.
