Google used yesterday's solar eclipse to reveal the name of Android 8.0, and it was very fitting for the occasion — it's called Android Oreo.

Google will begin rolling out Oreo to Google handsets first, including the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X and 6P. There's no word on an official release date, however, according to the company it should be "soon."

Other Android phones may have to wait a little longer to get the Oreo update, except those already enrolled in the Android Beta program who will receive the update regardless of device, alongside the first wave of Google phones.

While naming an operating system after a cookie may seem strange, it's not even the first time Google has done it. In 2013, Google partnered with Nestlé to name Android 4.4 KitKat. Obviously, someone over at Google HQ has a sweet tooth.

In other tech news, Elon Musk’s AI bots have beaten esports’ best gamers for the first time.
