Android P is called ‘Pie’ and is now available for Pixel smartphones

You can enable this new system navigation in Settings once you've received your update to Android 9 (learn more in the help center). In addition to the new Pixel phones, a smartwatch and possibly new wireless Pixel Buds are also expected to be unveiled. In fact, Samsung's Android 9.0 Pie release could arrive a little faster than its Android 8.0 Oreo roll out.

The update is available for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and Essential phone right now. Google's focus with the new version of Android was to have the operating system react more intelligently to users by learning about their habits and automatically adapting the battery, brightness, and apps to suit their needs depending on where they are and what time it is.

That said, though, Google does have a habit of launching its Pixel phones on October 4th (the Google Pixel 2 range was also announced on October 4, 2017, for example), so this leak does carry some weight in our opinion. 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 the update by the end of this fall.

Android 9 introduces digital wellbeing features, better notifications and promises to extend battery life for devices.

Also coming to Pixel phones this fall is Digital Wellbeing.




Google has developed a new battery manager with AI technology. But to get the beta version of WellBeing a user must have the Android 9 Pie.

It's not on board the Galaxy S8/Galaxy Note 8/Galaxy S7 Android Oreo updates (at least not yet), but Google's Project Treble, one of Oreo's key ingredients, is on board the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

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.

You can activate the Wind Down feature so that at night, as you get close to bedtime, your device goes into Do Not Disturb mode and your screen fades to grayscale to help you disconnect.

App Actions: App Actions predicts what you'll want to do next based on your context and displays that action right on your phone, saving you time.
