Finally! Google seems close to releasing its stable launch of Android 14 for Pixel. Meanwhile, the brand has revealed detailed information regarding how the first QPR1 Beta will take the stage next week. This performs duties for the users who want to opt out of the Android Beta Program without even wiping their smartphones.
However, Google last week already released its Android 14 Beta 5.3 along with the assurance that it was the final patch. Still, the new revelation indicates that the company is preparing for the release of the next beta program cycle, which covers Android December 14 QPR1 (Quarterly Platform Release).
Android 14 QPR1 Beta 1 will arrive next week on September 18, and the Android 14 release includes the latest bug fixes and improvements for increasing the stability and functionality of the device. Also, it will see a stable launch in December 2023, along with a Feature Drop simultaneously.
In case the users don’t opt out of the Android Beta Program before next week, then they will get QPR1 Beta 1 on their Pixel smartphones, Fold and other large-screen devices. The users also have another opportunity to opt out without losing their data at the end of the year. However, it must be said that QPRs are more stable and acceptable for regular usage without waiting for a few betas.
Noticeably, the users need to opt out of the Android Beta Program before QPR1 to grab the final stable public Android 14 release, plus also have to ignore the downgrade prompt to Android 13 up to the time Android 14 has launched. Unfortunately, Google has not revealed anything regarding the stable launch date of Android 14.
It was expected that Android 14 Beta would be similar to last year, with QPRs to continue into 2024. But the sad thing is that Android 14 has yet to be released.
