If you're going to perform the update, you'll want to set aside some time, as it does take quite a while to download the 1047.2MB software update. The system images will install over top of whatever you're running, and they do delete everything by default.

Hot on the heels of Google's Android Pie announcement, Essential confirmed that it's now updating the Essential Phone to Android 9.0 Pie.

Considering that both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2 were released on this date in 2017 and 2016 respectively, you may be forgiven for thinking there wasn't a lot of detective work that went into this. "The Pixel 3 phone is launching October 4th, 2018". The update is rolling out over the air, so if you've got a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL, keep an eye out for it. We hope so, because that's what Google is serving up today. New adaptive battery and display features won't be immediately noticeable, but could make a big difference over time.

Google has also baked several AI features into Android Pie.

The "wellbeing" of users is also taken into consideration in the new operating system, which includes a new Dashboard for usage control. If not, be sure to read the instructions on Google's website very closely before you attempt it. Not only it introduces features like WellBeing - aimed at detoxifying the digital lives of smart users - but also comes with a number of under-the-hood features that use more machine learning and artificial intelligence to predict the ways in which people use their phones. Adaptive battery learns which apps you use most often and prioritizes only the ones you really need at any particular moment in order to reduce battery consumption. To get to the phone's app drawer, you'll need to swipe up twice from the home button.
