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. The update will arrive with a slew of new features created to accomplish just that, including new device brightness and battery management tools.

Google has added several new AI features to Android Pie, too.

By using AI, Google hopes Pie will make your phone smarter, simpler, and "more tailored to you". You'll see a Google Search bar and your dock in the Overview as well.

Most Android users will have to wait months to get their hands on the final software, but if you own a Pixel or even an Essential phone, you can update to Android Pie today.

Android 9.0 has arrived. You can scroll left and right through all of the apps that show up here, and when you want to open one, either tap on it or slide down on it as if you're dragging it to the bottom of your phone.

For the Pixel 3, it appears that Google wants to have these creators tell a narrative story about real use with the device and the process of making the switch.

Presented the world’s first 5G smartphone
Motorola has added an 18:9 display on the Moto Z3 which allowed the brand to cram bigger battery inside the device. It has support for 4G VoLTE, 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5 LE, NFC, and Global Positioning System .

Offer actions in apps based on your previous activities - for example, suggest a route to work during your morning commute.

Google today confirmed Android 9.0 Pie.

A redesigned Quick Settings provides a better way to take and edit screenshots, simplified volume controls, an easier way to manage notifications and more. As of late July, just over 10 percent of all Android devices were running Android Oreo. In addition to continuously hardening the platform, and an improved security model for biometrics, Android 9 enables industry-leading hardware security capabilities to allow protecting sensitive data like credit card information using a secure, dedicated chip.

"Android 9 also brings important privacy improvements, such as TLS by default and DNS over TLS to help protect all web communications and keep them private", said Google. The rollout will also include devices from Sony, Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus and Essential that qualified for the Android 9 beta program.

In true Essential fashion, the company is rolling out the Android Pie update to its only device; the PH1.
