Google Opinion Rewards Is Asking Customers About Doable Names For Android N

Each time there is a new model of Android on the horizon, there’s additionally a rash of hypothesis as to what dessert Google will use for its subsequent codename. For Android N, now in an early and promising developer preview, the state of affairs isn’t any totally different. Android followers appear caught on “Nutella,” which might imply one other licensed deal just like the one with the KitKat rollout, although it is at the very least faintly doable that Google will use the title of an Indian dessert, as CEO Sundar Pichai hinted in a query and reply session. He additionally mentioned in that very same session that Google would possibly conduct an internet ballot for future Android codenames… and in a roundabout manner, that may simply be occurring now.


An Android Police reader despatched us two questions he acquired in Google Opinion Rewards, the Android app that lets customers earn Play Retailer credit score in alternate for filling out shopper surveys. The primary one asks the person to fill in a “tasty meals” that begins with N, and the second provides a choice of “tasty treats” all beginning with N. Since Google selects the questions for Opinion Rewards, it isn’t arduous to make the connection to a doable title for the upcoming Android launch.

Notably, the checklist of meals does not embody Nutella, as a substitute settling for nut brittle, nachos, noodles, nougat, Neapolitan ice cream (strawberry, chocolate, vanilla), and Nori, the seaweed wrap utilized in sushi preparation. There aren’t any Indian meals of any type within the checklist. Should you’re notably captivated with your N codename, you possibly can set up Opinion Rewards and hope the query comes up for you. Whereas Opinion Rewards are focused and considerably unpredictable, the truth that we have seen one exit signifies that tons of (and probably 1000’s) of customers have been requested the identical query.

It has been identified to us that Google does open the Opinion Rewards system to different corporations and people – just about anybody pays for anonymized solutions. It is doable that somebody aside from Google created the survey above, although it isn’t clear why anybody aside from Google would care. Thanks Joel.
