Apart from coming on many - but not most - existing Android phones, the Android 9 Pie will also be the operating system inside the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL that are likely to launch on October 4 this year as the official Android phones of 2018.

Google explained: "Say it's Tuesday morning and you're preparing for your commute: you'll be suggested actions like navigating to work on Google Maps or resuming an audiobook with Google Play Books".

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

This fall, Google will also roll out a feature called Slices, which will show relevant info from your apps when you want it. But to get the beta version of WellBeing a user must have the Android 9 Pie. In addition to continuously hardening the platform, and an improved security model for biometrics, Android 9 enables industry-leading hardware security capabilities to allow protecting sensitive data like credit card information using a secure, dedicated chip.

Google is dropping a major surprise on us today and releasing the final consumer-ready version of Android P. It has a final name: the version number is "9" (not "9.0"), and we know what the "P" stands for: "Pie".
