Google’s Latest OS, Android M Stand For ‘Macadamia Nut Cookie’

Google’s I/O 2015 is about to kick off within a few days and many of us are still wondering what does ‘M’ stands for in Google’s latest OS, Android M.

From the looks of it, Google internally refers to the upcoming Android flavor as Macadamia Nut Cookie, or MNC. This name was spotted in certain code branches in AOSP, but what does this mean? Well, nothing, actually, as it only confirms that the real deal won’t support this arguably long and cumbersome to remember names in particular.

Some of the internal code names that Google has used in the past include Key Lime Pie and Lemon Meringue Pie though these monikers were not used for the final public releases, instead the company went with KitKat and Lollipop.

The possibility exists that the public moniker may not be a Macadamia Nut Cookie and Google might come up with some other dessert’s name when it publicly unveils Android M.
Speaking of names, we have a handful of possible candidates. Our favorite turned out to be “Marshmallow”, with “Muffin” and “Milkshake” being the runner-ups.
