Technically, the digital wellbeing features will be immediately available to Pixel phone owners after updating to Pie, although the current feature release is one Google considers to be in a beta stage. Adaptive Brightness will now harness machine learning to understand how you like to set the brightness slider in various surroundings, helping to conserve battery life without marring the viewing experience. The Material Design approach isn't new to Google or Android, but the new theme adds white space and rounded corners. The phone will also attempt to predict what apps you like to run by displaying short-cuts to them during certain pairs of the day.

The release not only breaks with tradition by launching so suddenly, it also has a much simpler name than previous versions: Android 9 Pie (not 9.0, as the style has been previously). When enabled, a user swipes up to view recent apps along with app suggestions. Also of note is that the Essential Phone is now receiving its update to Android Pie, which is a great move by Essential. Providing you have the right device, you can either update using the OTA image (which doesn't require you to have an unlocked bootloader) or using the factory image (which is faster and doesn't require an unlocked bootloader, but riskier).
