How to use the new app switcher in Android Pie

Google Pixel 2 with logo

Out of nowhere, Google just announced that the latest version of Android, Android P, is officially called Android 9 Pie. The latest revelation comes days after the Pixel 3 XL surfaced on a Geekbench listing that confirmed the presence of a Snapdragon 845 SoC and Android P out-of-the-box.

Although we aren't holding out breaths, we can only hope that hardware OEMs are quicker about upgrading current devices to Android 9 Pie this time around.

If you're going to perform the update, you'll want to set aside some time, as it does take quite a while to download the 1047.2MB software update. Swipe up from anywhere to see full-screen previews of recently used apps, swipe left and right to easily navigate between them, and tap on one to jump in.

Android 9 introduces a new navigation system and a single home button, too, added Google.

Again, the easiest way to update your device without having to follow any instructions (other than pressing a button) is to wait for the OTA to hit your Pixel or Essential phone later today. "The Pixel 3 phone is launching October 4th, 2018". I suspect it will start as an exclusive on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL.

Well, this one sort of took us by surprise. We are also working with a number of other partners to launch or upgrade devices to Android 9 this year.

'For this campaign, Google is looking for Canadian creators whoa re not now Google Pixel users but are willing to switch to the Pixel 3, ' the advert states.

Personalised settings include the new Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness modes.

Google today released Android 9.0 Pie to Pixel phones. Apple's also worked on something along these lines, and Google has to follow suit now that some people are calling smartphones addictive.

But in fact, Lee claims to have seen an advert posted by Google itself on Famebit, a YouTube influencer marketing platform.
