"We have created Android 9 to learn from you and work better for you, the more you use it," Google said in a blog post.

& # 39; From predicting your next task to go directly to the action you want to take, to prioritize the battery power for the applications you use the most, to help you disconnect from your phone at the end of the day, Android 9 adapts to your life and the ways you like to use your phone. "

Google first announced Android P at its annual I / O developer conference in May. However, not all the features mentioned in the event will reach all devices.

Among them is Google's digital well-being function, which aims to give users more control over the time spent in different applications.

For now, that feature will be available to owners of Pixel phones in beta. "Other devices" may have access to the function later this year, the company said.

As part of the digital wellness function, users can set time limits for applications, so that after a certain period of time, the application will turn gray and be set to not disturb.

A deactivation feature allows users to tell the Google Assistant when they want to go to bed, and will set the phone to Do Not Disturb mode, as well as adjust the phone's screen in grayscale.

Google names its versions of Android after sweet treats, like its previous version, called Marshmallow.

Google chose Pie in part because a new feature called Slices will try to offer information segments of their favorite applications without opening them.

For example, if users enter a Google search for Lyft, a & # 39; portion & # 39; of the application on the screen, asking them if they would like to book a trip.

The slices will also not be available on the devices until later this year.

Another big part of the update uses AI to learn how users operate their devices.

For example, Android will configure the brightness of the screen by studying the manual settings, instead of automatically changing to a certain level depending on the ambient light.

But the most noticeable change that comes in Android P are its new gestural controls.

Now, users can swipe up once to see what applications they have open. Swipe up again and open the applications page of the phone.

Sliding to the right will scroll through recent applications, while the backward button will allow you to return to the previous screen.

Pressing the new start button will go to the home screen and if you press it, the Google Assistant will activate.

The volume change is also getting a new design, with a vertically oriented panel that appears next to the physical keys on the side of the phone.

In addition, the rotation change is becoming easier, with a new button that appears at the bottom of the phone, so you can easily switch from vertical mode to landscape mode.

WHAT CHANGES ARE GETTING TO ANDROID NOTIFICATIONS?

Android notifications are getting a major overhaul and now they are smart enough to stop showing alerts for things you constantly ignore.

You can notice when you've gone through the notifications so many times, and offer the option to permanently mute them.

Now you can control the notification settings for a particular application by long pressing a notification, which will open the settings in a different window.

Users can also control all these notifications easily from a new button & # 39; Manage your notifications & # 39;

To do so, click on the "Manage notifications" button at the bottom of the notification tray.

In addition, Google is making the notifications more visual, by adding images next to them.
