GOOGLE AND OREO TEAM UP TO REVEAL ANDROID OREO
New Android O Operating System Named After World’s Favorite Cookie, OREO
INDIA – August 28, 2017 – On August 21, Google revealed that the next version of its mobile
operating system, Android, is named after the world’s favorite cookie – Android OREO. Historically, Google has
named each successive Android release after sweet treats like Eclair, Ice Cream Sandwich and most recently, Nougat. The Android OREO
release marks a global collaboration between the OREO brand and Google, which kicked off with the debut of
the Android OREO superhero — a new character who personifies the powers of this iconic duo and the features of
the new operating system.
Poised to be a pop-culture icon, Android OREO channels the playfulness of OREO and intelligence of
Android to spread joy throughout the world. And, like all iconic superheroes, Android OREO originated from a
wondrous, and unique, moment in time: the 2017 total solar eclipse that touched the United States. To see

“It’s not every day that iconic brands like OREO and Android join forces in a way that is truly reflective
of both brands’ personalities,” said Justin Parnell, Global Brand Director, OREO “The OREO brand is on a mission
to bring people together through fun, playful moments, so infusing the playfulness of OREO with the openness of Android
is the perfect match. And with the Android OREO superhero, we’re continuing on our path to engage our fans across the world in innovative ways.”
Also unveiled with the release was the Android OREO superhero kinetic statue—a first of its kind for Android.
Building on Google’s tradition of creating giant lawn statues for every Android release, which are housed at its
headquarters in Mountain View, California, this new version of the Android OREO statue adds a layer of playful
interactivity the OREO brand is known for, together with Android’s rich history with robotics.
The Android OREO partnership will entail a variety of global initiatives designed to create innovative, playful
experiences for both OREO and Android fans, enabling OREO to continue to engage with its fans across the world
in new ways. Even in India, Android Oreo will focus on the digital medium to interact with the fans. The Android
Superhero will appear across social media and online video platforms.
