 is built with artificial intelligence at its core, enabling new features like Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness. Rolling out now on Pixel.

Google has finally put a name to the face of its latest Android version. The next version of Google’s Android system will be called Android Pie and it has been in the developer beta stage for months. The Android Pie will come start rolling out on Pixel smartphones starting today. Google had announced the final developer preview of the Android P last week which was primarily focused on developers trying to ensure their apps are fully functional and optimized

Fans and curious onlookers have been coming up with name suggestions for the Android P ranging from Pancake all the way to the Indian ‘Peda’, knowing Google’s tradition of naming the OS after desserts. But Google has picked a rather easy word for its latest Android version

 

Android 9 aka Android Pie features to know about:

Adaptive battery life

Android Pie uses machine learning to predict which apps you will use in the next few hours and which you likely won’t, so your phone only spends battery power on the apps you care about

Adaptive brightness

Android Pie with Adaptive Brightness learns how you set your screen’s brightness in different lighting environments and automatically does it for you over time.

Google calls this adaptive brightness and claims that 50% of users who tested this Android Pie feature have stopped manually adjusting the brightness because of it. Even if you still reach to manually adjust the brightness, overall, you should be doing it less. That’s what we experiencing when running Android Pie on a Pixel 2.

App actions

App Actions predicts what you’re about to do, so you get to your next task more quickly. Google explains this with an example- say you do something like connecting your headphones, the feature will show the playlist you were listening to earlier in the front

App slices

Slices shows a part of your app from within another app when you need it the most. Basically, it shows relevant parts of your favourite apps to the surface. For example,  for example, and checking into a hotel may soon be easier when you look up your hotel name. Instead of having to wade through the clunky third-party app, you may be able to just select ‘check in’.

navigation

This is another very important feature from Android Pie. It helps you navigate the system without using the old navigation bar. You can switch between apps easily using gestures instead of buttons.

You can do one better than Apple’s iPhone interface. Android Pie will let you scroll through all of your apps very quickly by sliding right and left with the horizontal bar at the bottom. It’s like a video you’re scrubbing through, but for app selection.

Volume slider and screen rotation fixed

The volume slider has moved again, and this time it’s off to the right side near the volume rocker. That makes sense, but it does more than just get a new home.

Android Pie ‘Digital Wellbeing’

Digital Wellbeing is supposed to aid you in understanding what you’re spending too much time on so that you can adjust your behavior.

Making room for more Android notch displays

Android Pie makes room for notched displays, and we’ve seen a lot of them on new Android phones in the last few months – pretty much everyone but Samsung.The use of a notch cutout means that some of Android’s standard interface staples have shifted.

Sound delay reporting

This is another interesting feature that offers support for headsets with sound delay reporting, so that video on your device and audio on your headphones can always stay in sync.

Manage Notifications

Android 9 Pie gives you more control over your app notifications. With this feature, you can quickly turn off your notifications from a range of apps so that you receive only those notifications that are important to you
