    Hi @wilson shrestha,
    that's a sad finding. 
    How are the other Android Pie features, do they work smoothly?

    Yup it's pretty sad. So far I haven't encountered any bugs. But for me personally the gestures in Pie are less intuitive. Its hit and miss for me. Others might have different opinion. I will report it here as soon as I find something unusual like this here.

    No the last picture is from Google. Its just a representation of the function if someone doesn't understand what I was talking about. And yes it is copy and paste in overview.

    No, its not enabled on Sirocco that's why I asked the question.

    Its really not clear if this is a Pixel Exclusive feature or not if that so.

    @nitheesh Does this Overview Selection Feature work on your Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 8.1 ?

    @wilson shrestha no it's not available in 6.1 Plus and 8.1. And my friend have Motorola one power, it also missing the feature. I think it's only available in pixel.

    @wilson shrestha Sadly, this cool feature of Android 9.0 Pie is currently limited to the Google Pixel line up — Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL. It doesn't support any other devices, even the ones running the Android Pie update.
    Oh well so much for Android One I guess.
