I have just installed Android Pie and the clock has moved from the right of the status bar to the left. Is there a setting to move it back?

  • There isn't a setting for it. You must have root to change it.

  • Without root, this substratum claims to do it. I can't test being on Oreo forum.xda-developers.com/pixel-2-xl/themes/…

  • @beeshyams Substratum requires root. Also please don't post answers as comments.

This is a problem encountered by many that has upgraded into Android Pie or bought a new one with Android Pie. Luckily, this could be fixed but rooting the phone is necessary. Someone I know tried this and it worked. May this also help you, https://www.xda-developers.com/status-bar-clock-tweaks-android-p-root/
