Android 8.0 Might Be Called Oatmeal Cookie

As of right now, the update is known as Android O or Android 8.0. While the version number will probably carry over to the final version, the Android O name won't. 

Google still hasn't confirmed an official name for Android 8.0 but it looks like the internal name at Google could be Oatmeal Cookie. 

References to "oc-dev" in the Android source code, discovered by Myce and seen in the screenshot here, hint at the name. The "oc" in oc-dev and OC-MR1 could be an abbreviation of oatmeal cookie.

This isn't the first time the name "oatmeal cookie" has popped up. References were also spotted in code at Google I/O back in May.  

Look for the name to be confirmed when the company announces the final Android O roll out for the Nexus 5X and other Nexus-branded devices.

    Gmail never worked for my Nexus 5x, (open and crush) when android beta installed. After resetting the device, could not boot and was restarting continuously. Thank God is still under warranty and just dropped it off to the retailer.

    My device became so slow I had to downgrade out of it. Which wipes your phone by the way. It has some pretty cool features but my 5x was struggling. Web browsing was extremely slow. And cycling between open apps usually involved the wrong app opening. Many apps were sluggish as well. Don’t recommend using the beta.

    I understand from what I’ve read in XDA Developer forum that the objective was to quickly boot Android O (say 15 secs) and the change in the odex files takes place in the background gradually. Hence, when you install O it will be very slow and there will be problems with the smoothness while changing or starting apps. However, in one or two days it will stabilize. Hence, if you want to try O be prepared to hang around on it for at least 2 days before giving up. Try it on the weekend maybe. Battery life from most sources seems to give 2 hours screen on time (SOT).
