Android 14 Update Tracker: Release Date, Top Features, Compatible Devices, and More

Here’s everything about the upcoming Android 14 update, the expected release timeline, features, supported devices and more.


  • Android 14 could launch in August 2023.
  • It brings various new features but would remain visually identical to Android 13.
  • Here’s everything about Android 14 and when your device will get the update.

Google is working on Android 14, the next most popular smartphone OS version. Android 12 brought the most significant visual change to the operating system, with Android 13 continuing to use the same Material You design language. From the Developer Preview Google has released for Android 14, we can say Google isn’t going to change anything drastic with Android 14 visually. But there are many under-the-hood changes and some new features.

Let us talk about when the Android 14 update will hit your devices, along with the new features it brings and the expected launch date of the update in this article.

Android 14 Release Date

Android 14 was made official during the Google I/O 2023 developer conference on May 10th. The company has released the second beta update for the public to try out the new features of Android 14. The Android 14 Beta programme is available for multiple brands, including OPPO, OnePlus, Lenovo, Xiaomi, iQOO, Tecno, Nothing, Realme, and Vivo. Google has revealed the official timeline along with the launch of the Android 14 Developer Preview 1. Take a look:

Android 14 Top Features

Generative AI Wallpapers

One of the coolest features of Android 14 has to be the Generative AI wallpapers. The features will allow users to create new wallpapers with the help of AI. One can add the description and the operating system will create a customised wallpaper based on the instructions.

Customizable Lock Screen

Google has also introduced a new customisable lock screen option with Android 14. With this, users will be able to customise each and every aspect of a lock screen like clock, shortcuts, wallpapers, and more.

Improved Granular Access To Media

In Android 13 or earlier versions, if an app wants to access an image or video, you give access to either the whole folder or the whole SD card. With Android 14, you have more control over what an app sees in your storage. You can select specific photos or videos when an app prompts for Data Access.

Larger Fonts

Android has supported changing font sizes for a long time now, since Android 6.0, to be precise. On Android 13, you can scale the font to 130% on Pixel devices. With Android 14, the font can now be scaled up to 200%.

Android 14 uses nonlinear font scaling, which means text that is already large won’t see a further increase in size.

Notification Flashes

Android 14 will allow you to see notifications by using the camera flash lighting up or the display flash. You can toggle these settings from Accessibility settings in Android 14. You can use the camera flash or display flash to light up the notifications or use both simultaneously. With the display flash, you can also choose the colour of the flash.

Better Support For Larger Screens

Android 14 also brings new app quality guidelines for large screens. Google separates apps across three tiers with support for large screens and functionalities they offer.

Regional Preferences

Android is used in countries worldwide and is a truly global operating system. Different regions come with other regional measurements for dates, times, temperature, etc., such as Kilometres vs Miles and Fahrenheit vs Miles. The regional Preferences feature in Android 14 lets users set their preferred temperature units, distance, calendar, the first day of the week, and more. The feature is now available in Android 14 Developer Preview 2.

Satellite Connectivity

Hiroshi Lockheimer, SVP, Android, Chrome, ChromeOS, Play and Photos, has announced that Android 14 will support satellite connectivity.

App Cloning

Google is testing the clone apps feature in Android 14 Developer Preview. It lets you create a second app instance, like current third-party solutions. As of now, many custom skins also have support for app cloning. Now, a similar feature will be available natively on Android 14.

Health Connect

Google announced Health Connect at I/O 2022, which could sync data across different health and fitness services such as Samsung Health, Google Fit, Fitbit and more. Health Connect is now baked into system settings in Android 14.

Enhanced PIN Privacy

With Android 14, you can turn off animations when you enter your PIN. This ensures that others won’t be able to see what you’re entering as PIN by looking over your shoulder.

Redesigned Back Arrow

The Android 14 also brings a new back arrow for gesture navigation. The feature will allow users to switch between the apps more efficiently. All you need to do is use the back gesture and the previous app will be opened.

Better System share sheet

The Android 14 update also brings a better share sheet, which will allow developers to add custom actions to the share menu. One can have custom sharing options like Send to your Devices, copy link, QR code, and more.

Per-App Language for Apps

The Android 14 will allow users to select languages on a per-app basis. The feature will allow developers to add multiple languages to their applications with ease.

Better Privacy

The Android 14 operating system will introduce a new feature that will allow apps to limit the visibility of specified views only to accessibility services that claim to help users with disabilities. Only real accessibility apps that have been vetted by Play Protect and the Play Store will be able to access sensitive data protected by the new feature.

Other Android 14 Features

  • New PIN animations
  • Enhanced permission control option for media files.
  • New lava lamp-style animation for the media player along with splash animation for the play/pause button.
  • New very low battery warning when the battery sinks below 2 per cent.
  • Emoji Kitchen wallpaper, which allows users to create custom wallpapers using Emojis.
  • Different live wallpapers for the lock screen and home screen.
  • The system supports font scaling up to 200 per cent.
  • Ability to identify bloatware and uninstall it with new Apps installed in the background feature.
