  • Android version 9.0: Pie

The newest addition to our Android versions list is the freshly baked Android Pie. Android 9 entered the world in early August 2018 after several months of evolution in public beta previews.

Pie’s most trans formative change is its new gesture navigation system, which trades the traditional Android Back, Home and Overview keys for a single multi functional Home button and a series of gesture-based commands.
