Android 9 pie has been released by google, feature-filled Android 9 Pie update, with design changes, helpful shortcuts, and a big focus on AI through adaptive settings. Google is trying to make your phone more personal, more efficient, and easier to use. As a recap, for Android 9 Pie, Google’s main focus is on improving three main areas: intelligence, simplicity, and digital wellbeing. For intelligence, features like adaptive battery and adaptive brightness are things that will mostly happen in the background, but should combine to give your phone greater longevity and also allow your phone’s screen to better adjust to surrounding conditions. Android Pie may launch in 2018 for some, but in many cases you’ll have to wait until 2019.
Good news for Sony, Xiaomi, HMD Global, Oppo, Vivo, and OnePlus users as well as qualifying Android One devices. Google says that these companies, which all participated in the Android Pie beta along with Essential, will issue the update by the end of autumn ( December 21).
Android Pie has been designed to give you a more consistent battery by using on-device machine learning to figure out which apps you’ll use in the next few hours and which you won’t use until later, if at all today. With 30% reeducation in CPU app wake-ups for apps, adaptive battery helped us eke out a few more hours of device use when we tested it. And now the software is final, so it should be even better.
Google partnered with Deep Mind to refine its deep learning algorithms and it’s having a big effect on Android battery life, according to Dave Burke, Google’s VP of Engineering for Android. Adaptive brightness is the most meaningful new Android Pe feature in our own deep minds.Most of the features in Android 9 Pie have been well-received in the beta. The system has a more advanced battery management system, which Google says is powered by AI. App actions surface common app actions as buttons in the main Android launcher. Text selection has significantly improved with a magnifier and smart text selection. But the new gestural navigation system has been more polarizing.
which is to say moving UI elements around felt choppy and not at all fluid. Things have improved significantly in later betas, but the swiping still feels a little less intuitive than the iPhone X’s gestures to many users. There’s an option to turn it off and go back to the traditional Android three-button setup if you don’t like it.
As for the name, well, “Pie” is not really a shock. It was the obvious choice, and Google went with it. The extra emphasis on the version number is interesting, though: Google refers to it as “Android 9 Pie,” .
