Google officially names Android 9 as Android Pie

Google has made some big changes in the latest version of Android

The program isn't now ready for wide release, but users can sign up to take part in a Digital Wellbeing beta to help Google test the feature before it officially launches this fall by signing up here. The update will arrive with a slew of new features created to accomplish just that, including new device brightness and battery management tools.

Google has also simplified the quick settings in Android Pie.

Switching back and forth between apps is something most of us do on our phones each day. 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.

Google surprised us all with the full stable launch of Android 9.0 today, also revealing the flavor of this Android version in the process: Pie.

Google has finally announced that the final version of Android P will be called Pie. The Essential Phone is the only non-Pixel device to have received the update and will stay that way for at least a few days until everyone else starts updating their devices. Your phone should find the update and then begin to download and eventually install the update.

This fall, Google will also roll out a feature called Slices, which will show relevant info from your apps when you want it. For example, App Actions will suggest a playlist when you connect Bluetooth headphones. It will use artificial intelligence to adapt to how you use the device. As of late July, just over 10 percent of all Android devices were running Android Oreo.

Within 24 hours of joining the beta, you'll see digital wellness appear in your Android settings menu.

Google highlighted Android 9.0 Pie's improved security today, too.

"Android 9 also brings important privacy improvements, such as TLS by default and DNS over TLS to help protect all web communications and keep them private", said Google.

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!

It seems that Google didn't want to wait for August 20th, instead announcing that Android 9.0 "Pie" was now ready to serve and it's rolling out to Pixel devices now. More details at the link below!
