As of May 2019, 10.4% of Android devices checking in with Google Play run Android Pie. Whether you've updated your Android OS version or not, there are various new features you will see when you operate Android 9 Pie and here are the some of those best features.

Updated Gesture Navigation Feature

Say bye-bye to the ordinary back, home, and recent button icons and say hello to a single bar that supports gesture navigation. It is just as easy to use.

In Future devices, this feature will be included, but you will still see the old buttons after updating your device in Android 9 Pie.

For use this updated feature please try it, head to Settings > System > Gestures > Swipe up on Home button. Your navigation bar will change right away.

How to navigate with the updated setup:

Tap the new small rounded rectangle-shaped Home button to go home.

If your present view can use the Back button, you will see it appear where it always has.

Swipe up on the Home button to open the Recents view. Here, move left and right to check out the list, and swipe up to clear a recent app. Press and hold an app’s icon to see the Split screen option. You can even interact with applications in this view to select and copy text.

Swipe up on the Home button twice and you will open your application drawer.

Swipe right and hold on Home to slowly scroll between applications and release to open the one in the middle.

Swipe right quickly and release to switch to the previous application.

Press and hold the Home button to open Google Assistant as before.

This may take a bit to get used to, but it offers smoother methods of navigation compared to the old style.

Improved Dark Mode Feature In Android Pie

Android Oreo contained a dark mode, but the system automatically decided whether to enable it based on your wallpaper. Now you can choose for yourself at Settings > System > Display > Advanced > Device theme.

Application Actions

This is similar to the app shortcuts that you can pick by long pressing on icons but quite different given the fact that it is Google launcher giving you suggestions of things to do with your phone.

For instance, your phone will suggest your most recent playlist when you connect earphones to it. Or suggest that you call your girlfriend.

Adaptive Battery Feature

If you used the Doze feature in Android 6 which hibernates all applications not being at that moment, the adaptive battery feature is an improvement of that feature and it is enabled by default in Android Pie.

Application Timer

Set a time limit on applications and after you have used them and cross the time limit, Android will automatically grey out the app’s icon – hinting that you should spend your time doing something other than using the app.

The usage duration that you set is up to you.

Adaptive Brightness Feature

Android’s adaptive brightness feature is now smarter as you can now train it to know your preferred brightness level when using certain apps and in different environments.

This setting is accessible from the Quick Settings drop-down menu.

Slices Feature

The Slices feature enables you to see informative data when you search for apps using the Google Search app. What is best about this feature is you can skip right to performing the listed actions displayed in the informative dialogue.

For instance, search for lyft in the Google search app and you will have the option to call for a ride to take you to your office, house, etc. with the prices displayed respectively as well.

New Accessibility Menu

From your Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Menu >, Use service, you can activate the new accessibility menu which enables an icon you can tap for actions like quick settings, recent apps, and volume.

One Click Screenshot Shortcut

Say bye-bye to the old Power+Volume Down button combo and take screenshots whenever you want to by tapping the icon in the Power menu.

Updated Home Button

The Home button now has a stylish icon shaped in the rounded rectangle aligned horizontally. If you ask me, this is the coolest Home button Android has ever had.

One Click Screen Rotation

Before now, you were limited to working with switching auto-rotate on and off. Now, Android has the option to rotate the screen to landscape mode and back to portrait at the tap of an icon.

Android Dashboard

Android’s Dashboard display shows how much time you have spent using your phone and breaks down the usage data into more extended bits by:

The number of times you unlocked your device

Your total number of notifications

A pie chart to indicate the time spent on applications every day by the hour

The number of hours you spend on your device every day

Indoor Navigation via Wi-Fi RTT

Android Pie comes with support for RTT (Round-Trip-Time) which allows users to navigate even buildings like malls with turn-by-turn directions using indoor GPS-style tracking.

Improved DND Mode

Do Not Disturb now prevents visual interruptions like background notifications and frequent pop-ups and you can take advantage of the Shush mode which silences your phone’s notifications completely. All you need to do is place your phone on any surface face down and DND will be automatically enabled.

Lockdown Mode

A new option that you can toggle from the Power menu, Lockdown Mode disables the fingerprint unlock on your device and you will need to enter a pin to unlock your device.

Maybe you will use this if a rowdy party is trying to force you to unlock your device – you decide.

All Applications use HTTPS

You will be happy to know that all apps on Android Pie use HTTPS by default because of your safety and security.

Media Panel

Since the volume controls are dedicated to Ringer volume, Android’s media setting now has its volume control in a vertically aligned slider on the right side of the screen and this same media panel displays different volume controls settings for all the devices connected to your Android phone.

Android Runtime Improvements

Without the need to be told, Android Pie comes with significant changes to its Android Runtime that enhance its efficiency and performance, which in turn, provide you with pleasant user experience.

157 latest Emojis

157 is a large number and it includes a Llama, cold face, hot face, mango fruit, skateboard, etc. Also, Google adheres to its Unicode Standard more strongly and gender-neutral characters have been removed.

Wind Down Feature 

Wind Down is the new feature of Android Pie that works with your chosen bedtime to automatically switch on Night Light and DND mode so that you can fall asleep easier.

Multiple Camera Support

With Android Pie, developers can simultaneously access streams from 2 physical cameras using the multi-camera API.

Wi-Fi MAC Randomization

The Wi-Fi MAC Randomization features works by randomly assigning a new MAC address to your device each time it connects to a new Wi-Fi network. This is one of the many improvements that come to Android’s privacy and security capabilities in version Android 9 Pie.
