Google Announces Android 9 Pie, Available Now For Pixel Devices

07 August, 2018, 00:24 | Author: Leah Owens
  • Android Pie will come with new features like navigational gesturers AI tweaks throughout the platform and digital well-being

You can join a beta test for these features if you've got a Pixel running Android 9, but it will launch officially this fall on Pixel devices.

Android 9.0 is Pie, as Google has now made official.

In a blog post, Sameer Samat, the VP of Product Management for Android and Google Play, said: "The latest release of Android is here!"

App Actions: App Actions predicts what you'll want to do next based on your context and displays that action right on your phone, saving you time.

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. Unlike Samsung, which keeps bringing its Note launches forward, Google isn't interested in beating new iPhones to market. Adaptive Battery will learn which apps you use the most and prioritize battery to them, while Adaptive Brightness will figure out where you like your phone's brightness in different settings and then set that for you.

"And when you put in headphones after work, you may see options to call your mom or start your favorite Spotify playlist".

Apart from the Digital WellBeing, other key features of the Android P include Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Actions, Slices and Smart Text Selections.

And one of the bigger updates is that the company is working to make it easier to navigate the operating system with a single "home" button that supports gestures. Creators are asked to publish one video, specifically on October 4.

Google's Android P was available in beta for the last four odd months, but the Android 9 Pie is the version ready for masses and it will be rolling out to compatible phones from tonight. With Digital Wellbeing, Google wants Android users to take better control of their screen time and will come with controls that will let you limit your screen time across applications and wind down at time.
