With Android Pie beta now available for the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, Samsung is well on its way to catching up with major competitors like Google Pixel 3 in giving its users the latest and greatest software Android has to offer. Of course, Samsung has put its own features into the software to make Android Pie its own and set it away from the rest of the audience.
As with some significant updates, Android 9.0 took a series of new features and improvements to the Galaxy platform, like new navigation gestures, adding a system-wide dark theme, and more. The Samsung Experience (née TouchWiz) user interface has a much needed makeup with Android Pie, which you immediately notice when you get to your Galaxy homepage.
The most important change is a set of completely remanufactured icons for embedded apps like Phone, Email, Camera and Game Launcher, just to name a few. The new icons are visually appealing and add a lot of color and life to the home screen, which will surely complement your favorite backups much more than the old icons ever could.
In addition to the upgraded icons, Android Pie has further developed the feature apps shortcuts introduced back in Android Oreo with the addition of a new "App info" option. Although smaller, the new option is still very useful, as it allows you to go directly to the app's information and settings page for more options like performing a power cut or tweaking permissions without having to dig through the Settings app.  (1) Appenweg at 8.1 Oreo. (2) Append path with the addition of an information button on Android 9.0.
TouchWiz application screen was also updated with Android Pie, primarily describing the search function for a more modern and aesthetically pleasing closed box that also eliminated the voice input option. Apart from that, however, the appliance has been largely the same, and still uses the same semi-transparent background we have become accustomed to.
Overall, Samsung's new home screen looks everywhere and will undoubtedly look even better on it upcoming S10 Series flagship when released next year. What do you think about Galaxy's new look? As always, share your thoughts by submitting the comments section below.
