Android Nougat Beta Closed for good as the new Android O is on its way

The next major version of Android is almost here, as Google finally killed Android Nougat beta.

Android Oreo, the next version of Android

It looks like there will be no more beta-tested versions of Android Nougat because Google had finally shut down the beta software. Instead, everybody is expecting the full release of Google’s Android O, following the launch of the Developer Preview from March 21.

All developers that are subscribed to the latest Developer Preview are currently in “Preview 1” which is practically an alpha phase. We don’t expect to see a beta version until the official Android O launch which will probably take place on May 17 during Google’s annual I/O developer conference.

At the upcoming event, Google will probably announce all the details regarding the essential changes that will come along with Android O. We’re also going to probably find out the official name for the new software. We already know that the company has its own tradition of naming Android versions after all kinds of tasty treats. There is a clear frontrunner for Android O and it’s called “Oreo” but who knows if this will also be the final name.

Google’s Android operating system in statistics

Android Nougat is the seventh major version of Google’s Android operating system and it was first launched in alpha on March 9, 2016. The full customer release came only later, during August, and it first rolled out to Google’s Nexus devices.

It is estimated that 7.1% of all the Android devices are currently running on Nougat, according to Google Play traffic data. A percentage of 0.5% of these devices are running the latest Android 7.1 version, and the rest of them, meaning 6.6%, are still using the Android 7.0 version.
