The most interesting features introduced by Android 9 and the most important changes of Pie that they become the most intelligent and adaptive phone compared Android 8 Oreo are:
1) Adaptive battery with AI power supply
Although Google has improved the efficiency of Android in past versions with energy-saving mode, battery life remains the biggest concern for people.
Android 9 Pie, therefore, introduces a new function called “Adaptive Battery”, which uses automatic learning to know which are the most used apps, assigning them the priority for the battery.
Based on the use of an app, a certain priority is assigned so that the system can limit the device resources available for each app based on this criterion.
2) Adaptive brightness with AI power supply
Android 9 Pie has a new AI auto-brightness algorithm, which learns how each user wants to set the screen brightness.
3) App actions
The greatest improvement of Android Pie compared to Oreo is its ability to help do things with as few touches as possible. And nowhere is it more evident than with app actions.
Android Pie has a new feature called App Actions that helps users do things faster by predicting what they want to do based on context, showing that they act directly on their smartphone.
For example, if the system knows that on Tuesday morning you go to work at a certain time, actions such as starting the navigator and taking charge of appointments will be suggested.
You can also add app actions to the quick notification bar links, which then becomes even more customizable.
This is an important feature added to Android Pie that allows apps to show a portion (slice) of information from other apps when the operating system believes we may need it.
5) Security and privacy
Google claims that Android Pie adds security to smartphones, to protect sensitive information like credit card data.
In addition to this, Android Pie also brings important privacy improvements to protect all Web communications and keep them private.

You can long-press on an alert to stop future notifications.
Apps can be closed by tapping the notification.
If you constantly delete a certain type of notification, Android Pie will ask you to stop viewing.
Under certain notifications, you can touch a “Useful” or “Not useful” button so that the system can learn to display only the ones you want.
7) Other various functions
In addition to these functions, Google has also introduced the new system navigation based on gestures in Android Pie which includes a single home button, intelligent text selection, and gestural navigation.
