Google Releases Android 9 'Pie' for Pixel Phones

Adjust Comment Print

Besides, things become a lot easier when you have only one phone out on the market.

Well, this one sort of took us by surprise.

Earlier today, the Google Pixel phones were updated to Android 9.0 Pie. This is a quick way to get from the beta to stable Android 9.

We've gotten a peek at quite a few of Android 9.0 Pie's features in recent months, but it's worth taking a glance at them one more time now that the update is officially rolling out to the public.

The factory image will wipe your device so when you reboot you will be on a fresh, brand new install of Android 9.0 Pie, while the OTA will simply update your current system to the latest stable version of Android.

The "P" stands for "Pie". The file highlighted is the relevant Android 9 Pie image for the Pixel 2 XL.

And gadget fans have just been given their first idea of when to expect the new Google flagship.

The Google Pixel 3 XL will probably feature a display notch, while the Pixel 3 will not, but its bezels will be a bit thicker because of it. You'll be presented with a carousel view of every app.

"And when you put in headphones after work, you may see options to call your mom or start your favorite Spotify playlist".

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.

And, if the Pixel 3 range is launched on October 4, then going by last year's release schedule, that would mean its on sale date is going to be on or around October 19, 2018.

"So we've been working to add key capabilities right into Android to help people achieve the balance with technology they're looking for".

The update, which has been available in beta since March, comes with a number of improvements, including new personalization features, battery-saving adjustments, and tools that help you track how much time you're spending on your phone. With Digital Wellbeing, Google wants Android users to take better control of their screen time and will come with controls that will let you limit your screen time across applications and wind down at time.
