    Android 9.0 Pie is official, rolling out to Pixel phones today!



    Google has officially announced the next major version of Android, 9.0 Pie.


    What’s new in Android 9.0 Pie?

    Adaptive Battery: uses on-device machine learning to understand your usage and prioritize battery power on the apps and services you use most often
    Adaptive Brightness: learns which brightness levels you prefer based on your surroundings, and automatically adjusts your phone’s brightness level for you

    App Actions: These little shortcuts, located in the app drawer, will predict what you’re about to do so you can get it done more quickly. For instance, if you normally open the app drawer, open the phone app, and call your best friend, you’ll eventually see an App Action suggesting you do so once you open your app drawer.

    App Slices: We haven’t been able to test out App Slices yet, but Google says it will make its way to Android Pie sometime in the fall. App Slices are similar to App Actions, but they appear in the Google Search bar. As an example, if you type “Hawaii” in Search, an App Slice might suggest you look at your recent Hawaii vacation photos in the Google Photos app.

    New gesture navigation: Android 9.0 Pie features a new way to navigate around your device. Gone are the traditional back, home, and recent apps keys. Instead, you get a single pill-shaped home button that you can tap to go home, swipe right to access recent apps, or swipe up to access your app drawer and app suggestions.

    Security and privacy features: Android Pie introduces plenty of new security and privacy features to help keep your data safe. One of the most helpful features introduced in the update is that applications are no longer able to access your mic, camera, or sensors when it goes idle.

    A ton of little changes: There are a bunch of other little features Google included in Android 9.0 Pie. Smart Text Selection, redesigned quick settings menu, improved notification bundling, manual switching between light/dark themes, improved autofill, revamped always-on display, and new volume shortcuts are among the many little changes in Android Pie.
