If you don't want to go through the hassle of manually sideloading your Pie update, you can always just wait until the OTA shows up on your Pixel device sometime within the next 24 hours or so.

Alternatively, you can keep swiping right until you see the Clear all text at the very end of the list.

Set the brightness to how you like it, depending on your setting. For example, you may type "Lyft" into your Google Search bar and Slices will bring up fare info for your home and work and let you know how close the nearest vehicle is, all without even launching the Lyft app.

A lot of these AI based features will require you use the phone for Android Pie to work out the best way to help you in your daily life so you'll see things pop up the more you use the phone. Coupled with Google's machine learning, it will give developers on-device APIs for text recognition, face detection, image labeling and more. From predicting your next task so you can jump right into the action you want to take, to prioritizing battery power for the apps you use most, to helping you disconnect from your phone at the end of the day, Android 9 adapts to your life and the ways you like to use your phone. Now, the final build of Android 9 is out, and it's called Pie. This should also help with one-handed use on taller (18:9) phones. You'll be presented with a carousel view of every app. These changes are relatively small, but still make a big difference in day-to-day use.

Volume controls: Simpler, more accessible volume controls let you control media volume instantly, as well as quickly toggle call and notification volume settings. It also tallies the number of notifications you've received and the number of times you've unlocked your phone. It will alert you when you're close to the time limit and then gray out the icon to remind you that time is up.

Android Pie is now official after being formally announced by Google today. It automatically turns on the Night Light blue light filter, switches Do Not Disturb mode on, and makes the screen grayscale. The screen will also fade to grayscale at bedtime to help you do not forget to get to sleep at your chosen time. If those tools don't sound terribly exciting to you, Android 9 has plenty of other tricks up its sleeve.
