This means that if you own a Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, or Google Pixel 2 XL, you can download factory and OTA images of Android 9.0 Pie. A feature called App Actions will try to predict what you want to do next with your phone, like help you navigate to work when you're getting ready for a commute or suggest a Spotify playlist when you plug in headphones. For example, you can type "Lyft" into Google Search and you'll see fare prices for places like Home and Work as well as an ETA for the nearest vehicle to your location. Slices, the new feature that surfaces information relating to apps within search results, will arrive in the fall. It also surprised everyone with the name; instead of dealing in decimals as it has historically done, this introductory release is simply called 'Android 9 Pie'.
For the other devices in the beta program, Google says they'll receive the Android Pie update by the end of Fall (which should be by the end of October). You can scroll left and right through all of the apps that show up here, and when you want to open one, either tap on it or slide down on it as if you're dragging it to the bottom of your phone. And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future. Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness will help improve performance and battery life.
Google has also simplified the quick settings in Android Pie. It will also be available to select beta users with Android 9 Pie and Pixel smartphone.
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. With it, you'll be able to get important info from inside your apps without actually launching them. Within the Digital Wellbeing interface, a pie chart will reveal which apps or services you use the most, allowing you to pause apps or snooze notifications to avoid mindless content consumption and reduce distractions. The digital wellness features are all still in beta, and won't be included when you get the update. More details at the link below!
