Another month has passed, which means it’s time for another Android 14 beta – in this case, the fourth. This build adds even more polish and fixes bugs. It is also the second platform-stable version of Android 14. This means that all developer APIs and all app-related behaviors are final and will not change until the final version is released.
Accordingly, the Android 14 Beta 4 seems to be the last beta before the final version arrives and reaches all supported Pixel smartphones and the first Google Pixel tablet. As usual over the past few years, Google hasn’t committed to a specific release window for this final build. But if you look at last year’s dates, an August release date is likely. This is also indicated by Google’s timeline, which can be seen at the top right.
Google hasn’t outright said the final release is next. In this way, the search engine company can still react if major problems arise with Beta 4 and publish a Beta 4.1 or a patch.
As usual, if you own an eligible Pixel device and are part of Google’s Android Beta program, Android 14 Beta 4 will automatically come as an OTA software update. If you are not participating yet, you can register here. After registration, it takes a few minutes to a few hours for the latest beta firmware to arrive.
