On smartphones and tablets, you can run two apps side by side in split-screen mode. Google has again paid a lot of attention to the notifications in Android Pie. WhatsApp, for example, now has the ability to display photos and stickers in the messages notifications.

 

You can now also see all your active conversations in the notification screen and you get the options to give quick responses. The new app actions are handy, The system tries to predict what you want to do and shows two shortcuts in the app menu. For example, you will see music-related buttons when you connect the headphones. Also efficient battery use is a spearhead of Android 9. Android 9 looks at how often you use an app. Apps that you use a lot may use more battery capacity than apps that you use very sporadically.

Android can now read two or more cameras simultaneously. This offers new possibilities for app developers, such as stereo image, seamless zoom and bokeh effects.
