The final version of Android 10 is official and may already be installed on some devices. Google has finally released the latest software version that this time renounces a sweet-themed name.
Android 10 is official
After several beta versions Android 10, in its final version, is here at last. Last year's Android 9 Pie was officialized in early August, and this time Google has given itself an extra month to finalize the new Android version. And if so far we have enjoyed betting on the new dessert name chosen by Google, from now on we will only talk about Android 10.
