Google Private DNS

Sorry, Android Pie only.  It's that new.

Google has introduced Private DNS, which uses encryption between your device and Google's DNS servers to add just a little more privacy to your Internet interactions, mainly keeping your Internet Service Provider (ISP) a little more in the dark.  This will work with apps that use the system defaults, however, some apps have their own built-in DNS lookups, so it's not perfect.  The article explains the setup and I used to option to manually configure it so it uses Google's DNS, as you can see at the bottom of the graphic below.
