Google has created a Page with the Timeline of various Android releases from 1.5 Cupcake to Android 4.4 Kitkat. Android is used in more than 1 billion phones and tablets, they have named the new version in tribute to the favorite chocolate treat Kitkat.
Nestle will produce nearly 50 million KitKat chocolates branded with the Android robot. The below promotional video has also been released.
