Android 9 aka Pie Rolls Out Today To Pixel Phones, To Be Fully Available Later This Year


Google has finally told us what Android P stands for and as you may expect, it has to something to do with food again thereby following the pattern. The Android P stands for Android Pie as Android’s VP of engineering Dave Burke announced a while ago with a pie image on Twitter. The Android P or 9 succeeds the Android Oreo or 8 even as Google makes the P’s source code available to the Android Open Source Project. The latest Android flavour is rolling out today to Pixel phones first.

The greatest highlights of the latest Android version all around artificial intelligence (AI). The smartphones that will eventually run on it will learn more about you and how you use apps as well saving battery life by automatically adjusting brightness.

According to an Android blog post, Go more with a single charge. Adaptive Battery learns how you like to use your phone, so the apps and services you don’t use as much aren’t a battery drain. Don’t worry about changing your brightness — your phone learns how you like to set it and automatically adjusts. Easy as pie.”

Other features coming to it include suggestions on things like work time and resuming media from where you stopped on sensing that you gave reconnected your headphone.

On the off chance that you don’t have a Pixel telephone, you won’t get Android Pie for some time. At the beta testing stage, Android P was made accessible on the Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH‑1. Google has said that these gadgets, and additionally all qualifying Android One gadgets, will get Android Pie towards the end of the year.

Google is working with phone makers to bring more devices to run on Android P whether by means of upgrade or new launch but if you have any of the Nexus devices, you may not be seeing the Android P even in the near future.

Android P devices will get the new Digital Wellbeing feature which includes telling you how much time you are spending on the phone and apps (this is similar to what Facebook announced for its platform including Instagram). There is the Do Not Disturb mode that quiets all the visual interferences that fly up on your screen; and Wind Down, which switches on Night Light and Do Not Disturb and blurs the screen to grayscale before sleep time. On the off chance that you have a Pixel telephone, you can attempt Digital Wellbeing in beta right now.

With respect to navigation, Android Pie additionally presents another framework route highlighting a one home button like the iPhone X. Swiping up from anyplace will show you full-screen sneak peaks of as of recently used apps, and you can tap to bounce once again into one of them.

Android P comes with some new privacy upgrades like Android Protected Confirmation.

Smart Text Selection identifies the meaning of a selected text and suggests actions.
