Google Releases Android 9 Pie

  • Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4

The digital wellbeing features are officially launching later this year, but are available right now for Pixel phones in beta. The update will arrive with a slew of new features created to accomplish just that, including new device brightness and battery management tools.

Android Pie is now official after being formally announced by Google today.

Google is also introducing things like Adaptive Brightness, which learns how you like the brightness set at certain times of the day, or in certain circumstances, or Adaptive Battery which learns which apps you use the most and prioritises the battery for those apps.

While you're in this app view, you can highlight text to put Pie's AI tech to work.


If you hop into the app switcher and then realize you want to exit it, either swipe down from the dock (the shaded area near the bottom) or tap the back button that appears to the left of the home pill.

The factory image will wipe your device so when you reboot you will be on a fresh, brand new install of Android 9.0 Pie, while the OTA will simply update your current system to the latest stable version of Android. And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future. For example, App Actions will suggest a playlist when you connect Bluetooth headphones. The Essential Phone was one of the third-party preview devices, which goes to show you how proper use of Project Treble can improve updates. The update's major focus is on artificial intelligence - numerous features arriving with the update will learn your habits over time and use that information to streamline the Android experience. Android P also brings a redesigned Quick Settings, a better way to take and edit screenshots (say goodbye to the vulcan grip that was required before), simplified volume controls, an easier way to manage notifications and more. Android One phones, as well as Android Beta program-enrolled devices - including those from Essential, HMD Global, OnePlus, OPPO, Sony Mobile, Vivo, and Xiaomi - are all expected to receive the update "by the end of this fall".

Days before Samsung takes the stage in New York City to unveil the Galaxy Note 9, Google has stolen the spotlight with the surprise release of Android 9.0 Pie on Monday. More details at the link below!
