Android 14 has been in early preview and beta programs since February and now the final, public release version is finally ready. Xiaomi has already started the rollout and now Google is ready with its Pixel smartphones. At least a Pixel 4a 5G is required to install the latest Android version. Android manufacturers like Samsung, iQOO, Nothing, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, Sony, Tecno and vivo are expected to bring Android 14 updates to their devices in the coming months.

The customization options that Google detailed in the middle of the year are also part of Android 14. These include AI wallpapers that can generate images from text. They are already available on the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. You can also personalize their lock screen with different fonts, color palettes, and custom widget shortcuts. However, there are also various homescreen templates to get inspiration from Google. These adapt to the situation by making widgets such as the weather app more prominent during storms.

Android 14 also includes support for HDR images with Ultra HDR, making photos look more vibrant. Google has also added native support for 3D audio, cross-device copy/paste, and a new media player. Data protection and security are two other areas of focus. Health Connect is also part of Android 14 and stores and encrypts all personal health data locally on the device. You will also be notified if apps want to share location data with third parties.

Additionally, Android 14 brings improved passkey support with support for fingerprint authentication in third-party apps and an updated 6-digit PIN lock screen option. New accessibility features include improved magnification with pinch-to-zoom and variable magnification options. Android 14 also supports faster font size changing via the quick settings menu with non-linear scaling for better readability. In the accessibility settings there is a special hearing aid setup and further options for routing an audio signal to different outputs.
