Android 9 Pie is now available to Google Pixel owners.

It also predicts what users would want do with a certain app and pulls up relevant information or "slices".

Options displayed for selected text depend on the context and meaning of the words - for example, if you highlight the name of a restaurant, you'll be offered to search for Yelp reviews of the place.

Android 9.0 has arrived.

The system navigation bar has a single home button, and the ability to swipe up to see an overview of the device.

Google is dropping a major surprise on us today and releasing the final consumer-ready version of Android P. It has a final name: the version number is "9" (not "9.0"), and we know what the "P" stands for: "Pie". Everyone else will be waiting on their manufactures to release the update but the company does say 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.

"We've built Android 9 to learn from you-and work better for you-the more you use it". In addition, Google also confirmed new "digital wellbeing" features will also become available to devices running Pie later in the year, starting with the Pixel phones. Your phone should find the update and then begin to download and eventually install the update. The gestures are being refined, but a quick run down will see you swipe up to access the Android Overview screen - the list of apps you have open listed in a vertical cards, while a swipe right when you're anywhere will quickly switch you back to the last app you were in.

The digital wellbeing features are officially launching later this year, but are available right now for Pixel phones in beta. 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. The update will arrive with a slew of new features created to accomplish just that, including new device brightness and battery management tools. For example, App Actions will suggest a playlist when you connect Bluetooth headphones.

Yet if you are anxious to try Digital Wellbeing before it gets released to the general public, there's a way to do that now. More details at the link below!
