Google poaches one of Samsung's best always-on display features for Android Pie

Poaching good ideas from manufacturer overlays has been Google's favorite pastime on Android lately, and Apple does the same with iOS, sometimes even acquiring the apps or features that it then incorporates in the next iOS version. We don't complain, as those new features usually work much better when they are embedded on a system level.

I just want the next calendar event from my outlook calendar on the Pixel 2 Always on Display. Currently will only show the next event from a google calendar......irritating!

Again, Android Version does not matters on Samsung phones. Most of the upcoming android features are already present in Samsung phones. Google basically copy them from Samsung.

Right? People complain about Samsung taking time to integrate the new OS on their phones. It's because they realized the Samsung Experience already had the features so they need to find a way to improve upon it further
