The Android operating system has evolved over the years, each version coming with its own plethora of features and functionalities. Google initially followed a nomenclature system for its OS versions, and the most exciting part was that each version was named after a popular dessert in alphabetical order.

Recently, Google let go of the nomenclature system and went back to the version number format of naming their popular OS. Each Android smartphone comes with the information regarding the version of Android that is running on it at the given point of time.
