Android Pie REVEALED: Google unveils latest OS, out NOW on Pixel phones

Android 9.0 Pie: When is Samsung bringing it to Galaxy devices?

It was posted on FameBit, Google's own YouTube influencer marketing platform, as an advert offering money to content creators in Canada who are willing to promote the new phone in return for cold, hard cash.

The "P" stands for "Pie".

After some initial rumours and leaks, Google has now reportedly confirmed the launch date of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. 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. Google will probably confirm the release date no sooner than September, quite probably in mid-September once IFA 2018 in Berlin comes to an end.

Devices that participated in the Beta program from Sony Mobile, Xiaomi, HMD Global, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, and Essential, as well as all qualifying Android One devices, will receive this update by the end of this fall! For example, Android 9 Pie offers cutout support for devices that will use the iPhone X-like notch at the top of the display. 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. To get to the phone's app drawer, you'll need to swipe up twice from the home button. Now easy as pie Making your phone smarter and more adaptive is important, but we also want Android to be easier to use and more approachable.

Android Central spoke with EK Chung, the UX manager for Android handheld and Pixel at Google.

The latest builds of iOS and Android are getting new features that allow users to monitor the amount of time they spend on their smartphones.

Among the other upgrades is a new "Adaptive Battery" system, which promises to help your phone save battery life by better restricting idle apps that run in the background. The digital wellness features are all still in beta, and won't be included when you get the update.

Another AI feature, called App Actions, learns what common tasks you complete at a specific time, place, or when an accessory is connected to the device.
