Google Newest Android Version Officially Named "Nougat" by csc2(m): 6:43pm On Jun 30, 2016
Finally, Google officially named the newest version of Android as dessert "Android Nougat". This version of Android was revealed via Snapchat, though we don't know why they decided to use Snapchat instead of there blog but all we know is that the name was reveal Officially by Google.

Nougat is the latest dessert-themed version of Android, due out later this summer. The release, initially announced in March and currently on its second (and mostly stable) beta, brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year. The release also has Daydream, Google's new VR platform, baked in, though it'll only be supported by Daydream-ready handsets running the OS.

pls can u explain more on this daydream vr platform. U can include pixs too

Daydream is Google’s Android-powered VR platform which encompasses both hardware and software — is a more advanced successor to Cardboard, the disposable headset standard that Google released two years ago. It's a mobile VR system powered by the next wave of Android Nougat devices, built to a company-approved standard. Where Google Cardboard worked with almost any smartphone, Daydream will only work on new phones with specific components like special sensors and screens.

A Daydream home screen will let people access apps and content while using the headset. Inside this environment, Google has created special VR versions of YouTube, Street View, the Google Play Store, Play Movies, and Google Photos. It's also recruited a number of outside media companies to bring apps to Daydream, including streaming platforms like Netflix and gaming companies like Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.

Google has announced eight hardware partners that will make Daydream-ready phones, including Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Asus, and Alcatel.

Though, we don't how much you should expect to pay for a Daydream device — the headset's closest competitor, the Samsung Gear VR, sells for $99.

But the article here, dated 21st May last month already revealed that Android N will be called Nougat. That’s prophetic if I may say
