Android 1.0 OS inside integrated a number of the company’s other products and services, including Google Maps, YouTube, and an HTML browser (pre-Chrome) that, of course, used Google’s search services. It also had the first version of Android Market, the app store with ―dozens of unique, first-of-a-kind Android applications.‖

The first version of the OS (1.0) released in Sept. 2008 did not have a code name at all. However, it reportedly used the internal name ―Petit four‖ while it was in development at Google. The name refers to a French dessert.

Google’s supported Nexus and Pixel devices consistently receive regular monthly security updates, and the latest version of the OS
