Android 14 Release Date

With the stable release of Android 13, Google has already started working on Android 14. According to an early leak brought to light by XDA Developers, the Android 14 has been codenamed “Upside Down Cake.” For those unaware, Google tends to name each version of Android by a dessert name. The name was previously public until Android 10 when it became just an internal codename. Regardless, it’s good to see Google keeping up with the trend.

As for the release date, there is no official information regarding that. However, we can speculate the release date based on past events. Android 14 might be released at Google I/O 2023, which will be held in May 2023. Regardless, the Android 14 Developer Preview 1 became live on February 08, 2023. This is so as to let developers adapt their apps to the new Android OS.

Furthermore, we can expect the Developer Preview 2 next month, i.e., in March 2023. The public beta should then start rolling out in April 2023 and continue until July 2023. We can expect to see four beta releases during this period. And finally, the stable build will be released in August 2023.

Here is the official roadmap released by Google:

Android 14 Build Release Date
Developer Preview (Released) February / March 2023
Public Beta 1/2 (Released) April / May 2023
Platform Stability June / July 2023
Stable Build August 2023

From the roadmap, we can see that the Developer Previews will continue until March 2023. After the Developer Preview, the Public Beta will be released to the public starting in April 2023, which will continue until May 2023. Google is also planning to achieve platform stability this time. This will take another two months- June and July 2023. Finally, the stable build will be released for everyone in August 2023.

Android 14 Features and Update Tracker

Update September 21, 2023: Google has finally released the Android 14 QPR1 Beta 1 for the Pixel devices. QPR stands for Quarterly Platform Release.

Update September 07, 2023: Google has now announced Android 14 Beta 5.3. Users who are already on Beta 5.2 will get this via an OTA update. Other users can install it using the factory image, too. The new beta update brings a handful of bug fixes and improvements to Android 14. Also, the stable release of Android 14 has been pushed back to October 4th.

Update September 06, 2023: As per Mishaal Rahman, Android 14 has been pushed back to October and is expected to launch alongside the Pixel 8 series. Originally, Google planned on releasing Android on September 05, but that seems to be delayed for some unknown reasons. We are not sure what will happen to the OEM releases though.

Update August 26, 2023: Google is now rolling out the Android 14 Beta 5.2 for the Pixel Tablet and the Pixel Fold. The new update brings a ton of bug fixes to these devices including unresponsive fingerprint issues, docking issues with the Pixel Tablet, screen flickering, and more. If you have one of these devices, you can install the update on your device. As for the stable release, it seems to be delayed until September.

Update August 19, 2023: Unfortunately, Google’s promise wasn’t true. Google has released the Android 14 Beta 5.1 update for the Pixel devices. The update is being gradually released to Pixel devices that meet the criteria. The update brings certain bug fixes to Android 14. The release date for the final Android 14 version remains vague.

Update August 12, 2023: Unexpectedly, Google has released the Android 14 Beta 5. However, this time we are sure that this is going to be the final update before the stable release. Google itself has stated this in Android Developer’s blogpost. The beta update, as usual, brings some improvements and bug fixes along with a couple of new features to the operating system. If you are a beta tester, you can install the update right away. The stable update seems to be delayed this time to the end of the month (i.e. late August).

Update July 27, 2023: Android 14 Beta 4.1 is here. Google has announced the new beta update on Reddit and it brings quite a lot of bug fixes for a point update. The update will be available for Pixel 4a and newer devices to install. This is perhaps the last update before we see the full release or the stable release of Android 14.

Update July 12, 2023: Android 14 Beta 4 has been released. The update is rolling out slowly to all the users eligible for the Beta updates. This new Beta marks as the last or the second to the last Beta update before we will see the final release in August 2023. The new Beta 4 brings bug fixes and improvements along with new features to Android 14. We might also see Beta 4.1 to be released soon. Stay tuned as the stable version of the Android 14 will be released very soon.

Update June 16, 2023: Android 14 Beta 3.1 has been released. This new patch brings June’s security patch update and fixes some bugs including the fingerprint unlock issue. The update is rolling in stages and users enrolled in the beta program can install it on their devices.

Update June 13, 2023: Android 14 Beta 3 brings an improvement to the Battery Saver on Pixel devices. This dims the wallpaper and the At a Glance widget while everything else remains at your set brightness. It is indeed a neat implementation from Google.

Update June 07, 2023: Android 14 Beta 3 has officially been released. This release marks the Platform Stability, completing all APIs and app-facing system behaviors. Google previously revealed that Android 14 would provide non-linear font scaling, allowing users to customize font sizes up to 200%. App permissions can be fine-tuned by allowing limited access to photographs and videos. This is all included in the Android 14 Beta 3. You can check out the Google Developers Blog for further information on Android 14 Beta 3.

Update June 02, 2023: In a recent tweet shared by Mishaal Rahman, Google seems to bring battery health stats to Android devices with Android 14. The health stats show the original capacity of the battery, the number of charge cycles, the charging policy, and the manufacturing date. At this moment, we don’t know how accurate this is, but it is good to see this feature coming to Android 14. We might also see some other stats being included with the final release of Android 14.

Update May 31, 2023: As per several reports from Android 14 beta testers, the Android 14 Beta 2.1 is causing the camera app to crash on Pixel devices. This happens when switching from the main lens to the ultra-wide and then from the ultra-wide to the main. Switching lenses cause the app to freeze and eventually crash. Some users state that opening the camera app and then quickly switching to portrait mode or quickly capturing a photo with the main lens resolves the issue.

Update May 29, 2023: Google has released the Android 14 Beta 2.1 update for its Pixel devices. The new point update brings a ton of bug fixes for the Pixel devices. Users who have installed the Android 14 Beta 2 can update their devices to make them less buggy.

Update May 12, 2023: The Android 14 beta program is now available for Nothing Phone 1 users. Although the build is in an early development stage, with some features potentially missing or non-functional, tech enthusiasts can install it to explore the new features. Current issues include the unavailability of face unlock, fingerprint registration, battery sharing, Glyph features, Portrait Mode, slow motion features in the camera app, pre-installed Nothing weather and Nothing X apps, and screen casting to TV. Despite these issues, Android 14 promises exciting new features such as improved battery life, predictive back gestures, and enhanced security.

Update May 11, 2023: Google has finally released the Android 14 Beta 2. It offers users a sneak peek of the upcoming Android 14’s features. Several Android OEMs including OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO, and others have joined the beta program and now some of their selected devices can also install and use the Android 14 Beta. All in all, there are over 10 smartphones from all the OEMs combined. These include the Xiaomi 12T, Xiaomi 13, Xiaomi 13 Pro, Vivo X90 series, iQOO 11, OnePlus 11, OPPO Find N2 Flip, Nothing Phone 1, and the Tecno Camon 20 series. More devices should join soon.

Update April 16, 2023: On April 12, 2023, Android 14 Beta 1 was finally released after weeks of anticipation, offering users a sneak peek of the forthcoming Android 14’s features. This beta version is compatible with select devices and available for download and installation.

Updated on March 19, 2023: In Android 14 DP2, a notification will appear indicating “Very low battery” when your device reaches 2% battery life. This feature is designed to remind you to charge your device before it turns off completely.

Update March 09, 2023: Android 14 Developer Preview 2 is out now. The Android 14 Developer Preview 2 has been released a month after the first preview, providing us with a sneak peek at the upcoming features that will be available on Pixel phones later this year.

Update February 08, 2023: Google launches Android 14 Developer Preview 1 which comes with several new features, including API behavioural improvements that offer a more consistent app experience across devices while reducing system resource usage. Additionally, there have been improvements to the internal broadcast system, which will help make device battery life and battery consumption more efficient.

Google intends to reach platform stability for Android 14 in June 2023, with several weeks planned before the official release. The full version of Android 14 is expected to launch in the latter half of the year. For those who don’t mind running into issues, the Android 14 Developer Preview 1 is available for testing. However, those who rely on their smartphone being stable are advised to wait for the full release.

The original post is as follows:

But what about the features? What’s coming to Android 14, at least so far? Well, it is too early to say what’s coming to Android 14. However, we have some insights on what’s coming to the next generation of Android. Here is what we would see in Android 14:

1. Android 14 Will Remove Support for Android Beam: Android Beam, a feature first introduced in the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, will no longer be supported in Android 14. It allows users to easily share content such as photos, videos, and other files between two Android devices by tapping them together.

The Android Beam feature was a great way for users to quickly and easily transfer files between two Android devices. However, it seems that Android Beam was not used enough to justify its continued support in the latest Android versions. This is why Google has decided to remove the feature from Android 14 and beyond. All the traces of the Android Beam code have been removed from the NFC framework, making it evident that the feature will indeed be removed starting Android 14.

2. Mandatory Support for AV1 Decoding: The AV1 video codec has been gaining much traction recently, as it promises up to 30% better compression than the current industry-standard codec, VP9. As such, Google is planning to make AV1 decoding mandatory in Android 14, the upcoming version of their popular mobile operating system.

This move is significant as it marks the first time that Google has made AV1 support a requirement. This will undoubtedly lead to a surge in adoption of the new codec, as more and more devices will be able to take advantage of its improved performance.

The move also has implications for streaming services and content creators, who will be able to take advantage of the improved compression to offer higher-quality visual experiences at lower bitrates. This could lead to a reduction in data consumption, as well as improved streaming performance, as AV1 is much more efficient than other codecs.

3. Satellite Connectivity: With the introduction of the SOS Via Satellite feature in the iPhone 14 series, Google also seems to take a step towards it. Google is reportedly working on this feature and planning to bring it with Android 14. This will be a game changer as Android will now natively support satellite connectivity, allowing users to communicate during emergencies.

4. Mandatory Support for the Identity Credential HAL: Google is also planning to bring mandatory support for the Identity Credential HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) with Android 14. This feature provides an important security layer for Android devices by enabling secure authentication for online services and applications.

The Identity Credential HAL is a hardware-based authentication layer designed to protect user data’s security. It is a secure and reliable solution for the authentication and authorization of online services and applications. This layer allows users to securely log into services and applications without having to remember multiple passwords.

The Identity Credential HAL is designed to be secure and reliable. It is an important step forward for Android security and provides users with a secure and reliable authentication process. With this feature, users can be confident that their data is safe and secure when accessing online services and applications.

5. Better Support for Foldable Devices: Finally, the Android 14 update should also include improved support for foldable devices. This will make it easier for users to use their foldable devices with the latest version of Android. This makes more sense since we recently saw leaked renders of the upcoming Google Pixel Fold smartphone.

6. New Sharing Menu: In the new Android 14 update, the way you share files with other people and apps will be improved. The sharing menu will look consistent across all Android devices, making it easier for you to share files and keep the menu up-to-date with the latest apps. Google is said to be planning to release this sharing menu via Play Services.

7. Predictive Back Gesture: Another exciting addition is said to be the predictive back gesture. This feature will allow users to quickly exit out of apps and preview the previous home screen, providing a seamless experience when navigating between different apps and screens. The development of this feature began with Android 13 and will be fully implemented in Android 14.

8. Updatable Root Certificates: Google may also be introducing updatable root certificates in Android 14. These digital certificates verify the identity of websites and apps and are used to establish trust between the user’s device and the website or app they’re accessing.

By making them updatable in real-time, it will make it easier for users to keep their devices secure. Currently, updating certificates requires an OTA update, but with this new feature, it will allow for real-time updates, which is crucial in emergency situations. This feature will give Google more control over device security and ensure that users are protected at all times, preventing older phones from losing internet access.

Android 14 Developer Preview 1 Features

9. Larger Fonts: Customization is a big aspect of Android, and with Android 14, users will have even more control over the content they view and how they view it. The maximum font size has been increased from 130% to 200%, and text won’t increase at the same rate as smaller text on the screen, ensuring that everything remains readable.

10. More Language Options: Developers will also be able to customize the set of languages displayed per app and easily support users who speak languages with grammatical gender.

11. Privacy and Security: Android 14 brings several changes in terms of privacy and security. Users will not be able to easily sideload apps on their smartphones that target Android SDK level 22 or lower (Android 8.1 or lower), as this can be a potential security risk.

12. Improved Battery and System Health: Another important aspect of the Android 14 is battery life and system health improvements. The internal broadcast system has seen some improvements that will help increase battery efficiency and health.

13. Screen-On-Time is back: Google removed the ability to see the screen-on-time of your device with Android 12. Fortunately, it’s coming back with Android 14. You will now be able to see the screen on time on your Android 14 devices.

14. Warning against unauthorized installation: Android 14 will warn users when an unauthorised app is installed without their permission. The users can then check the app and uninstall it.

15. New Battery Saver UI: The battery saver section has a new user interface with a bunch of new options too.

16. Fast Pair: Android 14 also adds the Google Fast Pair feature by default in the “Connection preferences” section of the settings page.

17. Hearing Devices Integration: Android 14 now directly lets you connect your hearing aid devices using the new Hearing Devices interface.

Android 14 Developer Preview 2 Features

18. New System Icon: One of the most noticeable changes in Android 14 is the brand-new system icon. This NASA-inspired logo is now available in various locations, including system notification pop-ups and when plugging into a PC for USB debugging.

19. Changes in Gesture Navigation: If you use gesture navigation, you’ll notice some changes when using the back gesture. It is now housed within a pill-shaped container that adheres to the Dynamic Color theme that you have chosen on your device. Additionally, the navigation mode section is now elevated within the settings menu and moved out of the gestures menu into the system section.

20. Improved Security and Privacy Menu: Android 14 Developer Preview 2 includes improvements to the security and privacy menu introduced in Android 13. Drop-down menus have been replaced with dedicated pages for each individual section, providing a unique page view for each section. Moreover, the Security settings and More privacy settings sections have been unified into one new “More Settings” section for easier access, bringing all functions to one convenient place.

21. Material You Rounded Bubbly Aesthetic: Material You now has a rounded bubbly aesthetic in the Android 14 Developer Preview 2. When making selections within the settings menu, the area will be highlighted and is now more rounded, similar to the pill-shaped Quick Settings tiles. It’s a minor change but overall, a great addition to the user interface.

22. Changes to the Lock Screen Widget: It also seems that the lock screen widget is now condensed to just one line, and the weather conditions are displayed in line with the current day and date, with no option to revert back to the previous two-line format.

23. Unique Regional Changes: The “Languages and input” section on your device allows you to customize regional settings such as the units of temperature (Fahrenheit or Celsius), the starting day of the week, and number formats. This feature works alongside the per-app language settings that are already available, giving you complete control over the localization of your device.

24. Flash Notifications: Android 14 Developer Preview 2 also includes a new feature called flash notifications, allowing Pixel owners to get the previously missing notification LED. This feature can be located in the accessibility section, where you can select the camera LED to blink when a notification arrives on your phone. You have the option to turn on camera flash notifications, screen flash notifications, or both at the same time.

25. Changes to Wallpaper & Style Section: The Developer Preview 2 update doesn’t bring any drastic changes to the default Pixel launcher’s wallpaper and style section, but there are some noteworthy updates that users will appreciate. The hub for customization available on the default Pixel launcher provides an excellent opportunity for users to personalize their devices according to their preferences.

One such change visible in the update is the full-screen preview option when setting a wallpaper on your phone. When selecting an image from the device’s default image repository, users can now quickly enter a full-screen preview mode.

Additionally, users can access a pop-up panel with the image title and basic metadata by tapping on the “i” icon in the upper right corner of the screen.

Another exciting addition to the wallpaper and style section is the clock settings option. Although not yet functional, it appears that users will have the ability to choose a custom clock for their lock screen in a future update. This feature will enable users to select a clock design that suits their preferences, resulting in a more personalized lock screen experience.

The update also includes an added monochrome theme that users can choose as part of the basic colour section. This option will display on-device system themes in either milky white buttons for light mode or grayscale buttons for dark mode. This new feature may be ideal for users who prefer simple colour combinations on their devices.

Android 14 Beta 1 Features

Here are some of the noteworthy changes and additions included in Android 14 Beta 1:

26. Transparent Navigation Bar Toggle: The Android 14 Beta 1 introduces a new feature that allows users to make the navigation bar transparent, making it easier to view hidden content without scrolling.

27. Lock Screen Customization: While rumors suggest that Android 14 will offer more lock screen customization options, the beta version has minor additions like the ability to disable the lock screen weather and notifications.

28. Enhanced PIN Animations: Android 14 Beta 1 also features new animations when dialing in PIN numbers on the lock screen.

29. Live Wallpapers for Lock and Home Screens: Android 14 will allow users to set a different live wallpaper for their lock screen and home screen. Although this feature is not yet enabled, it can be activated through the software code.

30. Improved Authenticator App Security: Android 14 offers better security for authenticator apps by limiting accessibility services and apps that can interact with them, thereby preventing malware from accessing two-factor authentication codes.

31. Modem Upgrade for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro: Users of Pixel 7 and 7 Pro can enjoy improved phone call and cellular network connectivity as Android 14 updates their modem.

32. Other Changes: The Android 14 Beta 1 also includes other changes such as a new Bluetooth LE audio toggle and new configuration files for external touchpads.

Android 14 Beta 2 Features

33. Languages & input split: The “Languages & input” settings menu has been divided into two sections, making it easier to access language-related settings and keyboard preferences.

34. Font size Quick Settings tile: Android 14 Beta 2 introduces a new Quick Settings tile specifically for adjusting the font size, allowing users to modify it quickly from the notification shade.

35. New uninstall/trash icon: The update includes a new icon for uninstalling or deleting apps, providing a refreshed visual representation for this action.

36. App info line separation: The layout of the app info screen has been modified, removing the line separation between different sections to create a cleaner look and streamline the interface.

37. New animations: Android 14 Beta 2 introduces new animations for specific interactions, such as accessing Wallpaper & Style settings and performing long-press actions on app icons, enhancing the user experience.

38. New Security & privacy icon: The redesigned Security & privacy icon represents settings and features related to security and privacy within the operating system, offering a more visually appealing and intuitive representation.

39. Better Experience with Third-part Apps: Instagram and TikTok now support night mode and HDR10 video playback in Android 14. This feature, formerly on iOS, automatically brightens HDR videos.

40. AI Generative Wallpapers: Android 14 lets users describe a situation and obtain an AI-generated wallpaper. AI-powered messaging apps improve interaction with better message suggestions.

41. Better Graphics: Android 14 will let apps handle more complicated graphics, improving visuals and app launches.

42. App Pairs on Homescreen: “App Pairs,” Android 14’s split-screen multitasking, is based on Samsung’s long-standing functionality. Users can combine their favorite apps on the home screen for quick access.

43. Improved Screen Recording: As per Mishaal Rahman, Android 14 will bring a partial screen recording feature that will allow users to have more control over what will be recorded. The new screen recorder will allow users to record the instance of a specific app and hide notifications and other UI elements such as the status bar and more. Switching to a different app will turn the screen blank, and will be back to normal when you switch back.

44. Keyboard Shortcuts: Android 14 will bring a long list of keyboard shortcuts that can be used when you connect a physical keyboard to your device. This feature can be especially useful on large devices such as tablets. According to Mishaal Rahman, the feature has been available since the release of Android 14 Beta 2. Earlier, there were keyboard shortcuts too, but those were very limited. This new addition will make the keyboard experience on Android devices much better.

45: Material You-Themed Icons for All Apps: As per a new tweet shared by Mishaal Rahman, Android 14 will bring the themed icons to all the third-party apps by allowing users to generate themed icons for any app. This is much like the forced dark mode feature that we got on Android 10. Currently, only a handful of apps support this feature which doesn’t look good. This is a welcoming change, as it will make the UI more consistent.

45. New Clock Changes in Lockscreen: Android 14 Beta 2 on Pixels introduces the Wallpaper & Style app, allowing users to customize their lock screen and home screen wallpapers separately. It allows users to change the color and intensity of the lock screen clock. Users can select from a range of clock sizes, including “dynamic” and “small” options, which are equivalent to the “double-line clock” toggle found in the current lock screen settings.

It’s important to note that the features and changes mentioned here are based on the developer previews and beta releases of Android 14. Google is likely to make further changes and improvements to the OS as development continues, and new features may be added or removed. The final version of Android 14 may look very different from what is currently available in the developer preview. So stay tuned!

56. New Profile Pictures: Android 14 Beta 4 lets users customize their profiles with more photos, symbols, and avatars.
