Google Releases Android 9 'Pie' for Pixel Phones

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

Essential has been minutes behind Google for the better part of the year regarding security updates and Android Pie beta releases.

Rotation: Get more control over your phone's display rotation with a simple button that confirms when you'd like to change the rotation on your device - even when your orientation is locked.

Those that have the Essential Phone and have yet to see the update notification pop up can always head into the settings menu, enter the system settings, and tap "update".

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

First a radical new updated design leaked that showed that Google had gone back to the drawing board with its well-reviewed but disappointingly sold Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, and returned with a device that - especially in its larger incarnation - looked a lot like the iPhone X.

Google announced the official name for the next version of Android, along with the update's initial release, Monday.

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.

The date is hardly a surprise since both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2 were also unveiled on October 4 of 2016 and 2017.

Google has also baked several AI features into Android Pie. You'll see a Google Search bar and your dock in the Overview as well. This dashboard lives inside of your phone and focuses on quite a few things, but to put it plainly, you'll have access to new phone usage statistics, new features like Wind Down and App Timers, plus more. 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. You'll need to install the Android SDK Platform Tools package on your computer, which interfaces with your device through ADB, a command line tool.
