Android 9 'Pie' has officially launched with a focus on artificial intelligence

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

The program isn't now ready for wide release, but users can sign up to take part in a Digital Wellbeing beta to help Google test the feature before it officially launches this fall by signing up here.

Google is also introducing things like Adaptive Brightness, which learns how you like the brightness set at certain times of the day, or in certain circumstances, or Adaptive Battery which learns which apps you use the most and prioritises the battery for those apps.

Options displayed for selected text depend on the context and meaning of the words - for example, if you highlight the name of a restaurant, you'll be offered to search for Yelp reviews of the place.

Google has announced the official release of Android 9 Pie with new AI features which aim to make your device smarter and more tailored to you.

Within 24 hours of joining the beta, you'll see digital wellness appear in your Android settings menu. 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.

The Pixel phones have a built-in feature to make switching easy: Google shipped the Pixel 2 with a USB-C to USB-A adapter in the box for easy data transfer. More details at the link below!
