A few days ago, Google officially pushed the official version of Android’s 9th version- “the Android 9 Pie OS”. This version is very large compared to the previous one. With the release of the official version of Android 9 Pie, mobile phone manufacturers began to adapt. At present, in addition to Google’s Pixel series, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Huawei P20, Glory 10, Glory V10; Xiaomi Mix2s mobile phone and one plus 6 mobile phones have been added to the adaptation work.
Friends who have updated the system will find that Google has added an adaptive battery and a new status bar for Notch in this update.
However, the above functions were introduced by Google as a key feature, but in addition to these, Android 9.0 has some notable minor features. Although they are not mentioned in detail at the press conference, you will feel it after the experience. However, it doesn’t you are going to forget the iOS…
Add a new accessibility menu at the bottom of the screen
The soft button for the shortcut menu is placed in the lower right corner of the screen. When you click it, it seems to open a small folder at the bottom of the screen. It includes some useful small functions including screen capture, volume adjustment, multitasking interface, etc. Similar to the small dot function of the iPhone, Google may have to catch up with the auxiliary functions.
WiFi distance positioning
In Android 9.0, there is an indoor positioning method for mobile phones, which use WiFi positioning. Android 9.0 has added the ability to measure distance using WiFi. This is mainly because Google has added support for IEE 802.11mc, which is a specification for wireless network measurement distance.
Using the WiFi RTT feature, the phone can measure the time spent moving between different hotspots to calculate a specific location. Moreover, this feature does not require you to connect to WiFi, only need to have 3 or more WiFi hotspots around, then the positioning accuracy can reach one or two meters, very powerful.
Remember the volume preference of each Bluetooth audio device
At present, many mobile phone manufacturers have canceled the 3.5mm headphone jack, and the Bluetooth headset has become obvious. The volume setting of each Bluetooth audio device is different. So after adding this intimate little feature, when the registered device is connected to the phone again, it will adjust to the volume recorded in the device when it was disconnected last time.
Support 5 Bluetooth audio devices to connect at the same time
With the popularity of smart homes and the elimination of the trend of headphone jacks, Bluetooth audio devices are getting closer and closer to people.
Many friends have more than one Bluetooth audio device, and Android 9.0 has added the characteristics of multiple Bluetooth audio devices connected at the same time. In the previous Android system, only up to two Bluetooth audio devices could be connected, and the limit was increased to 5 in Android 9.0.
However, in Android 9.0 you can’t play audio at the same time on 5 Bluetooth devices. After all, the bandwidth of Bluetooth is the restriction. After you can connect these Bluetooth devices, you can quickly switch without reconnecting the connection.
In Android 9.0, you can find related features of this feature in the developer options. The default is to select only one. If you find that the number of Bluetooth devices that can be connected after upgrading your system has not changed, remember to enable this feature.
Automatically identify the frequency of software push messages
You can also know which applications are pushing notifications frequently those are sometimes very annoying. Right now what you do–either you click on it or just look at it or don’t want to click it. Instead of that now you can tell the OS to automatically close the notifications of certain applications without asking you again and again. Android 9.0 will automatically record and analyze the push frequency of all software, and finally make a list visually present in front of you, let you choose which applications push needs to be closed.
Overall, the update for Android 9.0 is really very sincere. Many devices have been upgraded to Android 9.0. I hope that major manufacturers can follow up and upgrade as soon as possible, bringing users a better experience.
