Last week Nokia had released the beta update for Android 9.0 (Pie) for Nokia 8 smartphone. Now, today HMD Global has started rolling out Android 9 Pie stable update for the Nokia 8 phones. This certainly is reason for Nokia users to enjoy the festivities with another fresh piece of Pie from Nokia.
Although, the promise was to roll out the update in November, it got due to some major software bug. But, good news for Nokia 8 users is that finally it is coming with several new features and updates. However, getting delayed is perfectly understandable. But the disappointing part is there is no official word about Nokia 8 Sirocco, as if it does not exist.
The new updates and features in Android P includes App Actions that helps you raise the visibility of your app and help drive engagement using machine learning, Adaptive Battery that uses machine learning to prioritize system resources for the apps thus saving battery life and Slices are a new way to surface rich, template content in places like Google Search and Assistant.
The Android 9 Pie update also includes Android security patch for December, 2018.
