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

The factory image will wipe your device so when you reboot you will be on a fresh, brand new install of Android 9.0 Pie, while the OTA will simply update your current system to the latest stable version of Android.

The update, which has been available in beta since March, comes with a number of improvements, including new personalization features, battery-saving adjustments, and tools that help you track how much time you're spending on your phone.

App actions is also a core part of this release that tries to predict what you will do next and display that action on the screen.

However, the headline feature of Android 9 Pie is not its gesture support but rather a new feature called Digital Wellbeing.

Alongside the new name, Google has also announced that the new version will start shipping to all Pixel phones starting today. Apple's also worked on something along these lines, and Google has to follow suit now that some people are calling smartphones addictive. The file highlighted is the relevant Android 9 Pie image for the Pixel 2 XL.

These former setting, as the name suggests, adapts to how users use their phone so apps which aren't used don't drain the battery. Inside their attractive designs, you'll find impressive displays, excellent cameras, and the latest hardware, combined with pure Android software that's always up-to-date. For example, you can type "Lyft" into Google Search and you'll see fare prices for places like Home and Work as well as an ETA for the nearest vehicle to your location. Now, the final build of Android 9 is out, and it's called Pie. The digital wellness features are all still in beta, and won't be included when you get the update. According to the developers, Android can now learn from your usage habits to determine which apps you use the most. You won't need an unlocked bootloader, but you will need a computer with ADB running.

We've just installed Android 9 Pie to our Pixel 2 XL this way, and it took only minutes from the moment we commenced the installation to completion.

Google highlighted Android 9.0 Pie's improved security today, too.
