Android 9 has launched - the details

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

One of the biggest changes is the Android Pie offers a gesture-based navigation system, letting you swipe up to see the new Overview, which will let you see all your recent apps and even select text in them if you're on a Pixel.

Now, technically there is no way to know if this listing was posted by Google or one of its agencies, or whether this is a mistake, so a small dose of salt should be taken regarding this launch date.

Android 9 Pie is official, and you can download the final build right now, although it's not available to everyone. If you are even slightly uncomfortable performing the steps in the links above, it's best just to wait for the update to hit your phone. It's a pretty simple task that's seen some minor improvements over the years, but with Android Pie, Google gave this a huge overhaul both aesthetically and functionally.

As a refresher, there are a lot of new features included in Android 9.0 Pie.

Google explained: "Say it's Tuesday morning and you're preparing for your commute: you'll be suggested actions like navigating to work on Google Maps or resuming an audiobook with Google Play Books". And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future.

So, for instance, if a user starts typing the name of certain taxi apps it will also show prices for a ride home in the search results screen.

Yet if you are anxious to try Digital Wellbeing before it gets released to the general public, there's a way to do that now.

"In fact, over 70 percent of people we talked to in our research said they want more help with this".

The Android P Beta has been available for some time now, with a number of handsets compatible with the preview of Google's next major operating system upgrade. 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.
