Android Pie And It’s New Features
, we’re excited about the new features and tweaks the mobile operating system brings. Google released Android Pie to Google Pixel phones this week, let’s show the new Features of Android Pie.
1. Android Pie’s Adaptive Battery
In the never-ending pursuit of better battery life, Android Pie’s Adaptive Battery feature will learn the apps you use over time and prioritize system resources to them. As for the apps you hardly ever use? Well, Android Pie will basically ignore them until you actually open them. In the end, this saves on battery and makes everyone happy.
2. A new screenshot tool
A fancy new screenshot tool provides the option to edit or delete a screenshot immediately after taking it. Tap either option on the notification that displays after you capture your screen. Easy peasy.
3. Gesture navigation
Navigation gestures are now a thing on Android Pie. See that pill-shaped button at the bottom of the screen? That replaces the three buttons that previously were used on Android. The feature is optional, and off by default. You can enable it by going to Settings > Gestures> Swipe up on Home Screen and toggling the switch.
4. Images in Notification’s previews
Notifications will soon have the ability to show you images in the notification preview, instead of just text. The new feature will require developers to add the option, so you may want to start bugging your favorite developers to add compatibility.
5. New material design
Android Pie has a new look overall. Slightly rounded corners on notifications and the quick settings pane are continued throughout the interface. It’s a modern material design.
6. Text Selection Magnification
An underrated iOS feature I’m glad Google finally got around to copying is a text-selecting magnification box. Meaning, when you begin to move the cursor around within a block of text, you no longer have to guess its exact location. Instead, Android Pie adds a magnification box just above the cursor. Yeah, buddy!
7. Media Controls Take Priority
Prior to Android Pie, when you were listening to music and wanted to adjust the volume of only the music, there wasn’t a simple way of doing so. You could use the volume buttons, but that would adjust the system volume setting for your phone. After installing Android Pie, the volume keys will default to controlling media volume. Also, notice the new look of the volume controls?
Instead of a vertical stack of app previews, Android Pie switches to single previews that are placed next to one another horizontally. Using the gesture pill along with the bottom of the screen, you can scroll through previously open apps or swipe up on an app preview to force-close the app.
9. New Settings Look
In its marathon attempt to get the Android Settings menu just right, Google has once again redesigned it. It’s now more colorful, for starters.
10. App actions
App actions will suggest tasks you commonly carry out within an app, or as they are needed. For example, in this screenshot are two buttons just below the top row of app suggestions. One button suggests I use Google Photos to clear up space on my device, while the other gives me the option to open Slack and quickly switch between teams.
11. Notch Support
Display notches are all the popular this year. And Google isn’t one to get left behind. Android Pie adds official support for screen cutouts for those hardware makers that decide it’s the only way to move forward with device designs.
