It is Android 9 Pie! Official list of changes & new features

It is Android 9 Pie! Official list of changes & new features

Those still skeptical over the leak need remember that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also launched on 4 October past year, so the date does match usual Google plans.

Google today released Android 9.0 Pie to Pixel phones.

Rather than tapping the Recents button to open the app switcher, Android Pie requires you to do a small swipe up from the bottom of your screen. In any case, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL had surfaced in a number of images thus far, while some additional info also popped up, so we pretty much know what to expect out of the two phones.

Although we aren't holding out breaths, we can only hope that hardware OEMs are quicker about upgrading current devices to Android 9 Pie this time around. While you are waiting for the download to complete, you can always take some time to read the thoughts of the Essential team about the new update.

These features, however, are available in beta form for Pixel owners and will be available in production form in time for the wide release of Android 9 Pie.

"And it comes with a heaping helping of artificial intelligence baked in to make your phone smarter, simpler and more tailored to you".

As a refresher, there are a lot of new features included in Android 9.0 Pie.

App Actions also predict what users are going to do next based on the "context and displays that action right on your phone".

But in fact, Lee claims to have seen an advert posted by Google itself on Famebit, a YouTube influencer marketing platform.

Android 9 Pie or Android P is Google's attempt to modernize its mobile operating system.

Then you just head to this page and sign up for the Digital Wellbeing beta. Sadly, Google says Digital Wellbeing won't be available as part of today's release and will be rolled later during this fall. Adaptive battery learns which apps you use most often and prioritizes only the ones you really need at any particular moment in order to reduce battery consumption. A new Do Not Disturb is included, too, along with a Wind Down feature that'll turn on Night Light and Do Not Disturb and also fade your phone's screen to grayscale to help you get to sleep.
