Android Pie is the official name of Android 9.0

Android P

Google announced on Monday the official name of Android P:  Android 9 Pie (or Android 9.0 Pie).

Android Pie (pronounced “pay” as “apple pie”) is the latest version of the Google operating system that has been available in beta, but it is expected that in the coming weeks it will arrive as an official update to different cell phones.

Google highlights that Android 9.0 Pie is focused mainly on artificial intelligence and simpler experiences, as well as new functions.

Artificial intelligence in Android Pie


Adaptive Battery: As part of artificial intelligence, Android Pie has the ability to learn and understand the usage patterns you have on your cell phone to optimize battery life by giving priority to the apps and services that matter most to you.

Adaptive brightness: Similar to the battery, Android 9.0 has the ability to learn from the control you have of the brightness of the screen depending on your environment to adjust it automatically according to your preferences.

Actions of apps: The actions in apps try to predict what you are going to do in the box of apps to offer you shortcuts according to what the system thinks you are going to do. For example, if you connect a headset, the system will put your favorite playlist in that second row of the app drawer.

Slices: It brings a better integration of the interface of your apps according to what you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for Lyft, Android Pie will show you the possibility of selecting your house or work, as well as requesting a Lyft from that floating advantage that appears in the lower part.

Simplicity of Android 9.0

When Google talks about simplicity in Android Pie, it refers to the new gestures features that allow access to recent apps by just swiping up from anywhere. In addition, you can press the bar to go to Start, swipe the bar to browse recent apps and press the return button to return.

One thing that stands out is that smart text selection now also works on that screen of recent apps, so it helps productivity.

As part of this simplicity of Android Pie also comes the new volume controls and the new design of fast configurations, among others.

Digital health

Google wants to help fight the cellular addiction that exists and with this it integrates digital health functions. 

One of the most important functions is on the board or Dashboard that shows you with great precision the time you spend in each app, how many times you unlock your cell phone and how many notifications you receive. In addition, Android Pie allows you to set time limit to use apps.

On the other hand, the do not disturb mode now not only silences incoming calls and text messages, but also blocks visual interruptions on your screen.

Finally Wind Down  allows you to tell Google Assistant what time you go to sleep so that the screen automatically turns black and white and helps you fall asleep more quickly. 

When will Android 9 Pie arrive?

Google has not revealed an official date of the arrival of the Android 9.0 Pie update and only said it will be in the third quarter of the year. However, as the name is already official, it is very likely that it will arrive in the coming weeks (it is rumored that it will be August 20 ). You can know more details about this and which cell phone will receive the Android Pie update here.
