Google announced today that its DNS service finally supports DNS-over-TLS, meaning it can be set as the system-wide DNS provider on Android 9 Pie.

CloudFlare launches 1.1.1.1 public DNS service, claims it’s faster than Google DNS and OpenDNS

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Domain Name Servers, or DNS for short, are directories of domain names and what IP addresses they are linked to. When you type in a website, like androidpolice.com or google.com, your DNS looks up the IP address tied to that domain so the page can be loaded. Most people just use the DNS service provided by their ISP, but alternatives like Google Public DNS and OpenDNS have become popular in recent years.
