NetEase news on August 7th, Google announced that the official name of the latest mobile operating system AndroidP is AndroidPie, and the latest source code is open to the Android open source project (AOSP). Today, Google has pushed the official version of the Android9.0Pie system update to Pixel devices.
At present, AndroidPie is temporarily only supporting Pixel mobile phones. In the beta test phase, AndroidP has been open to SONY XperiaXZ2, millet MiMix2S, NOKIA 7Plus, OppoR15Pro, VivoX21, one plus 6, and EssentialPH-1 open test. Google said that before the fall of this year, AndroidPie will be open to these devices and all eligible AndroidOne devices. Google added that this year it is pushing or upgrading equipment to Android9 with many other partners. AndroidPie will no longer support Nexus devices.
First look at new functions
Google points out that Android Pie incorporates a lot of AI assistance to make mobile phones smarter, more convenient, and more responsive to the special needs of users.
AndroidPie provides a series of new features, such as built-in support for Liu Haiping, adjusted fast setting panels, circular notifications, support for inline responses (quick reply messages in the notification interface), intelligent reply in notification, a consistent user interface for fingerprint identification, and restricted application backstage The privacy enhancements of the executive function, the adaptive battery and adaptive luminance function (supported by Google DeepMind), the AppAction that predicts the next users next operation, the AppSlices of the user interface that displays some applications within the Google search results, and the Assistant intelligent assistant, and prompts the user through the system management dialog box. Biometric Prompt API for biometric authentication and multi-camera APIs that allow users to access streaming media content from two or more physical cameras simultaneously.
Among them, the adaptive battery function is particularly interesting, it can record the most commonly used applications, and for these applications preferential allocation of electricity. Like the adaptive battery, the adaptive brightness function uses artificial intelligence technology, which can automatically adjust the screen brightness according to user preferences and environment.
Google also explains how AppActions predicts users next action based on background information with examples. Suppose its Tuesday morning. Youre going to work, and AppActions will advise users to use Google maps to navigate to work or to play a voice book in Googles PlayBooks. When wearing headphones after work, users may see options such as calling their mothers or opening their favorite Spotify playlists.
The AppSlices function will be launched later this fall. This function can display relevant information of users favorite applications when needed. For example, if a user enters Lyft in a Google search, the user interface of this taxi application will appear in the search results, and the price and the expected arrival time of the taxi will be displayed.
The new Digital Wellbeing series will be open to Pixel phones (this fall) and other devices (later). This series of functions includes recording the Dashboard of user equipment use time, AppTimer for some applications setting time limit, the undisturbed mode of shielding the content of the screen, and opening night light and undisturbing mode before sleeping, and turning the screen into grey hue WindDown. We can now try the digital health function through the beta version of AndroidPie in Pixel mobile phones.
AndroidPie has also launched a completely new system navigation feature, of which the single main screen button draws on Apples iPhoneX. Sliding up from anywhere displays a full-screen preview of the most recently used application, and users can click the preview to jump back to an application. The smart text selection function (SmartTextSelection) can identify the meaning of the users selected text and recommend related operations, which is now applicable to the recent application preview.
A variety of privacy and security improvements are also worth mentioning. AndroidPie introduces a protected confirmation operation (AndroidProtectedConfirmation), a StrongBox that acts as a new KeyStore, a built-in support for DNSoverTLS, a network security configuration that defaults all plaintext traffic, and limits idle applications to access the microphone, camera, and all SensorManager sensors.
