Google released Android pie earlier this month and it came with some awesome features. Even though you can download it right now, it is important to note that it’s not for all devices.
For some time now, the Android P Beta has been available and a number of devices are compatible with the upgrade.
Yet, without a Google Pixel device or an Essential phone, you cannot access the full version. Even with these devices, it’s not arriving with all the new features available – App Slices are coming later this year, for example.
How to download Android Pie
1. For starters, make sure you own one of the following devices: Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The Essential Phone also has the update rolling out on day one.
2. Android Pie will arrive as an over-the-air update, so you’ll need to head to Settings > System > System Update to see if it’s landed on your handset. You may even get a notification alerting you that the Android 9 update is available.
3. Tap download and install. You won’t be able to do this if your battery is too low, to make sure you’re topped up or you’re near a charger before proceeding.
