Google chose Pie in part because an upcoming feature called Slices will try to offer slices of information from your favorite apps without opening them. The update will arrive with a slew of new features created to accomplish just that, including new device brightness and battery management tools. However, if you only use one of those apps at particular times, Android can "pre-load" it so it's ready to go. You'll see a Google Search bar and your dock in the Overview as well.

Google announced Android 9.0 Pie just a few hours ago and while you might expect it on Pixel phones the moment it was announced, you'll be surprised to find out that Essential is wasting no time getting the update to its handset owners. Similarly, apps in split-screen won't be counted either, and nor will using them that way count toward app timers. In addition to confirming that P is now Pie, Google is now referencing Android 9.0 as Android 9 Pie, marking a slight change from previous Android version releases that have typically arrived in the decimal form - such as Android 8.0 Oreo. And that, according to Google, will help Android 9 Pie learn and get smarter in future. That shows how much time you spend on your phone every day, and how often you check it - glancing at notifications, for instance. You'll need to use the same email address that you've already registered for Google Play. There are some nice UI improvements in there, too, like more rounded design elements and a redesigned Quick Settings.

Google names its Android versions after sweet treats, such as Marshmallow.

Once you get that email, and hit the link in it, you'll see a Digital Wellbeing entry in the Settings page. The update is rolling out over the air, so if you've got a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL, keep an eye out for it. This includes an improved security model for biometrics, hardware security capabilities for protecting sensitve data using a secure chip, and privacy improvements like TLS by default and DNS over TLS. Devices that participated in the Beta program from Sony Mobile, Xiaomi, HMD Global, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus and Essential, as well as all qualifying Android One devices, will receive the update by the end of this fall.
