- The Android 13 codename is “Tiramisu.”
- Unlike the past three versions of Android, Google’s putting the codename right in Android settings.
- Don’t get your hopes up, though: it is unlikely the OS would publically land as Android 13 Tiramisu.
The last time Google publically and officially labeled an Android version with a “sweet treat” moniker was 2018’s Android 9 Pie. Android 10 was the first no-nonsense release, with Android 11 and Android 12 also going without any formally acknowledged treat name.
That changes with Android 13, though. It is officially known as “Tiramisu.” In the first developer preview of the operating system launched today, you can find the Android 13 codename right in Android settings. Look to the image above to see for yourself.

Usually, Google just lists the alphabetical designation here, which would be “T.” That’s what it did for the past three versions, anyway.
However, don’t let this news of the Android 13 codename get your hopes up that Google’s getting back on the sweet treat train. It is almost assured that Android 13 would land with that simple title and not Android 13 Tiramisu.
Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made with coffee, ladyfingers, cocoa, and mascarpone cheese. The name loosely translates to “cheer me up” in Italian.
Although Google didn’t make public declarations on it, we know the previous versions of Android were internally codenamed Snow Cone (Android 12), Red Velvet Cake (Android 11), and Quince Tart (Android 10). You can see our full history of Android releases here for more info.
