How to download Android Pie right now

First a radical new updated design leaked that showed that Google had gone back to the drawing board with its well-reviewed but disappointingly sold Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, and returned with a device that - especially in its larger incarnation - looked a lot like the iPhone X.

Alongside the new name, Google has also announced that the new version will start shipping to all Pixel phones starting today.

While the Android 9 Oreo operating system is available right now for Pixel owners, some specific features won't actually "ship" until the fall. You can find a majority of the details about the update on the dedicated Android 9.0 Pie website. In addition to the new Pixel phones, a smartwatch and possibly new wireless Pixel Buds are also expected to be unveiled.

If you update your phone to Android 9.0 Pie today, be sure to let us know what you think of the update!

Google has launched the latest version of Android - Android 9. That's the one you want, so download it for your appropriate model. Adaptive Battery will learn the apps you use most and prioritize battery for them, while Adaptive Brightness will figure out how you like your phone's brightness set in different situations and then do it for you. The file highlighted is the relevant Android 9 Pie image for the Pixel 2 XL.


The date is hardly a surprise since both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2 were also unveiled on October 4 of 2016 and 2017.

Google explained: "Say it's Tuesday morning and you're preparing for your commute: you'll be suggested actions like navigating to work on Google Maps or resuming an audiobook with Google Play Books".

Yet if you are anxious to try Digital Wellbeing before it gets released to the general public, there's a way to do that now.

Android 9 learns and adapts to usage patterns and comes with features like Adaptive Battery, which learns the apps you use most and prioritises battery for them.

This is the dashboard from the upcoming "Digital Wellness" beta. 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).
