4 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

With Android 9 Pie , Google has included a new feature in Developer Options. And that is “Feature Flags”. This is pretty similar to the flags that you'll find in Google Chrome.

I don't know about you, but nothing is more annoying than when my phone hits 15% and I'm nowhere near a charger.

Initiating a split-screen in Android 9.0 is not as easy as pie

The latest build of Android, 9.0 Pie, uses AI in an attempt to improve the experience of those rocking Android devices running the new version of the OS. But if there is one thing that has Android owners steamed, it's the new roundabout way to initiate the split-screen on Android 9.0. The old method simply required that the user long-press on the square on the bottom right of the phone. Once that was accomplished, the second app to view could be selected.
On Android 9.0, with gesture controls enabled, you swipe up from the "pill" to the top of the screen. Tap the icon of the ...
