Android Pie Is Here, Promising Smarter, Simplified Interface
Aug 07, 2018, 00:28
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.
Google's focus with the new version of Android was to have the operating system react more intelligently to users by learning about their habits and automatically adapting the battery, brightness, and apps to suit their needs depending on where they are and what time it is.
The date is hardly a surprise since both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2 were also unveiled on October 4 of 2016 and 2017.
App actions is also a core part of this release that tries to predict what you will do next and display that action on the screen.
However, for now, it's only Google's Pixel handsets which are getting the full, final version of Android Pie from today, and even then it's not arriving with all the new features available - Slice is coming later this year for example.
Another new feature is Adaptive Brightness, which learns "how you like to set the brightness in different settings, and does it for you". If not, be sure to read the instructions on Google's website very closely before you attempt it. 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. Now, the final build of Android 9 is out, and it's called Pie.
Another major feature of Android 9.0 Pie is Digital Wellbeing. To get to the phone's app drawer, you'll need to swipe up twice from the home button.
Pixel users can now sideload Android 9.0 Pie onto their devices.
WellBeing, which is the highlight feature, is not going to be available with the Android 9 Pie immediately.
