Platform Features

Always something new to discover.

Google updates. No upgrade required.

With Android, you get the latest from Google. Photos, Maps, YouTube — they’re all always updating with new features. And when they do, you can get those new features automatically.

Your Assistant is always ready to help.

Your Assistant helps get things done faster — with one million prompts and growing. Get suggestions for your next vacation. Plan for the weather. Even check in to your flight, using just your voice. Plus, the more you use it, the better it gets.

Security that's one step ahead.

Always on alert and on guard. With Google Play Protect enabled, your device scans all your apps everyday to check if they’re safe. Every month, security updates are released to Pixel and Android One devices. Around the clock, Android checks every app on the Google Play Store. We do the work so you don’t have to.

Millions of apps. Always the newest.

Google Play has over one million of the best apps today and growing. Plus with automatic updates, apps you’ve already downloaded can upgrade as soon as a newer version is released. Just like magic.

The latest OS

Android 9 Pie gets better as you use it.

Less time scrolling, less time charging, more time doing. Android 9 Pie is our latest OS built with artificial intelligence. That means it works better based on how you use it. Your battery lasts longer, your apps predict what you want next, and your screen even dims when it’s time for bed.
