These features, however, are available in beta form for Pixel owners and will be available in production form in time for the wide release of Android 9 Pie. Apple's also worked on something along these lines, and Google has to follow suit now that some people are calling smartphones addictive.

In true Essential fashion, the company is rolling out the Android Pie update to its only device; the PH1. You need to have a Pixel running Android 9 Pie - which shouldn't be a problem since the over-the-air rollout of the update is in full swing already.

In a blog post, Sameer Samat, the VP of Product Management for Android and Google Play, said: "The latest release of Android is here!" That's the one you want, so download it for your appropriate model.

Finally, Android's Do Not Disturb mode gets a boost from Digital Wellbeing too.

The first official build of Android 9 has build number PPR1.180610.009 for most of us. While you are waiting for the download to complete, you can always take some time to read the thoughts of the Essential team about the new update.


Google has developed a new battery manager with AI technology. 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.

While the latter setting automatically adjusts the brightness level to how the user prefers it. Whether Samsung will take as long as it usually does or bring this year's major Android upgrade sooner remains to be seen (we're hoping for the former thanks to Project Treble). If not, be sure to read the instructions on Google's website very closely before you attempt it.

"And when you put in headphones after work, you may see options to call your mom or start your favorite Spotify playlist". Slices, a feature that shows relevant information from your apps in search results will be available later this fall.

For the past two iterations of Google's Pixel phones, the unveiling has happened on October 4.

The digital wellbeing features are officially launching later this year, but are available right now for Pixel phones in beta.
