Burke denies ‘M’ in Android stands for ‘Milkshake’

Earlier, a Reddit user, posted David Burke’s, Android Vice president of Engineering, watch face showing a milkshake. This led us to believe that the “M” in Android M stands for “Milkshake.” Burke found out about the rumours and said that they were “exaggerated.”


According to Burke on Twitter his watch faces show his favourite deserts that start with the letter M. So it seems the next version of Android will not be called Milkshake.

Here are the other possible Android M names:

  • Marshmallow
  • M&M
  • Macaroon
  • Milk Duds
  • Milky Way
  • Mars Bar
  • Meringue
  • Marzipan
  • Muffin
  • Mocha

In a previous report, the M in Android M stands for Macadamia Nut Cookie, but of course this is just a rumour so take this with a pinch of salt.

What do you think Google will name the next version of Android? Do you still think it will be Milkshake, will it be Macadamia Nut Cookie, or do you think it will be something else? Let us know what you think through a comment on our Phones LTD Facebook page.
