Android 9.0 Pie is already available for the Essential Phone

Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4

The finished version of the Android P has arrived and Google is calling it Android 9 Pie.

Although we aren't holding out breaths, we can only hope that hardware OEMs are quicker about upgrading current devices to Android 9 Pie this time around. Pie will roll out to devices in the Android P Beta Program - like those from Sony, Xiaomi, HMD Global, Oppo, Vivo, and OnePlus - as well as qualifying Android One devices by the end of this fall.

Rather than tapping the Recents button to open the app switcher, Android Pie requires you to do a small swipe up from the bottom of your screen.

According to YouTuber Brandon Lee on his This is Tech Today channel, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will drop in on October 4, 2018.

People Across 15 States Sickened in McDonald’s Salad Outbreak: FDA
In response, McDonald's has stopped selling salads in 3,000 USA restaurants until they can replace their lettuce supplier. Health officials have confirmed 395 cases of cyclospora infection from salad mixes sold at the fast-food chain, the U.S.

Google described Android Pie as an experience "powered by AI" and said it will adapt to how individuals use their phones and learn user preferences. Appearing at the top of your app drawer, app actions are similar to Apple's Siri suggestions, which also suggest specific shortcuts for the things you do al the time, like look up directions home or pull up your favorite playlist. For example, you might be getting ready for your commute to work, and App Actions will suggest navigation in Google Maps or resuming an audiobook in Google Play Books.

Alongside the new name, Google has also announced that the new version will start shipping to all Pixel phones starting today. With it, you'll be able to get important info from inside your apps without actually launching them.

But in fact, Lee claims to have seen an advert posted by Google itself on Famebit, a YouTube influencer marketing platform. 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. Adaptive battery learns which apps you use most often and prioritizes only the ones you really need at any particular moment in order to reduce battery consumption. Providing you have the right device, you can either update using the OTA image (which doesn't require you to have an unlocked bootloader) or using the factory image (which is faster and doesn't require an unlocked bootloader, but riskier).

WellBeing, which is the highlight feature, is not going to be available with the Android 9 Pie immediately.
