Android 9.0 Pie Statue Goes up at the Googleplex

Google unveiled the statue for its latest version of Android.

Take a stroll over to the Googleplex, and you’ll see a new statue in front of Google’s main office building that features the Bugdroid standing tall next to a pie.

It represents Android 9.0 Pie, which began rolling out this week. As its predecessors did, the statue tells the world what version of Android is the most current. But Google didn’t really go for an exciting theme. In the past, we saw statues that incorporated the dessert into the Bugdroid’s look. Android Pie, however, only includes an open pie at the Bugdroid’s feet.

Here’s a look at the Android Pie statue:

The inside of this Google-made pie hasn’t been confirmed yet. Many people are wondering if some pomegranate got packed into the pie, and that does seem to be the case. Google, though, has not specified what type of pie it’s embracing.

Google took the cover off its pie-loving Bugdroid at a little after 3:00PM PT. Now it’ll be there for an entire year.

Following the release of Android Q in 2019, the Android Pie statue will be relocated to a lawn in front of an office building elsewhere at the Googleplex. The Mountain View-based company doesn’t move on from previous versions of Android and leave their statues in a storage unit to collect dust. All of them remain on display for employees and visitors to admire.

You’ll be able to download and install Android Pie over the next few days if you have a Pixel phone or Essential PH-1.
