Google Android 14 Beta expected to roll out to Pixel devices in April 2023



Google is expected to start rolling out Android 14 Beta for its Pixel devices in April 2023, with the platform’s Quarterly Beta (QPR1) for Android 13 starting next month.

Google originally said Android 13 QPR betas would run until June 2023

The company now says that “the Android 13 beta has ended with the public stable release of Android 13 in August 2022”, noting that the QPR1 beta begins next month.

Beta releases are expected to “continue until March 2023”, and there will likely only be two QPRs: T1B (stable in December) and T2B, reports 9to5Google.

Then Android 14 beta builds begin, likely in April with UPB builds for the Pixel.

Additionally, the company said that “devices must be on a non-Developer Preview public stable build to enroll in the beta program.”

If you’re running a Developer Preview, Google asks you to upgrade to the current stable release and then enroll in the Android Beta program.

Android 13 Beta 1 was released a month before the annual Google I/O developer conference this year.

The Android 14 developer preview could start in February, according to the report.

Google started rolling out Android 13 this month with a slew of new features, including improved privacy controls, language settings and more, starting with Pixel devices.

Google said Android 13 will roll out to Samsung Galaxy, ASUS, HMD (Nokia phones), iQOO, Motorola, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Sharp, Sony, Tecno, vivo, Xiaomi and more later this year.
