Several references in the Android source code give a strong indication that Android 8.0 will be very likely codenamed ‘oatmeal cookie’. In the source code we found references to ‘oc-dev’ which is in line with former branch names used by Google.As the screenshots indicate we found numerous references to ‘oc-dev’ and also one time ‘OC-MR1’. While it’s not entirely sure ‘oc’ is an abbreviation of oatmeal cookie, it’s the most likely candidate.

Google has a history of giving Android releases confectionery-themed names. Former names are e.g Kitkat, Lollipop, Nougat and Marshmallow.

Android 8 Oatmeal Cookie should bring battery life, picture in picture mode, high quality bluetooth audio, adaptive icons and more.


Several Twitter users also found a Oatmeal Cookie reference in slides presented during Google I/O. settings
