Google has launched the fourth beta version of Android 14, adding further refinements and bug fixes to the operating system. This release marks the second “Platform Stable” Android 14 version, indicating that all developer APIs and app-facing behaviors are now finalized and will remain unchanged in the final public release.
The Beta 4 release is anticipated to be the last before the final version is rolled out to all supported Pixel devices. Google has not yet provided a specific release window for the final build. However, based on last year’s timeline and Google’s own hints, it is expected that the final version could arrive as early as August.
While Google has not explicitly stated that the final release is imminent, this is likely to allow for any major issues discovered in Beta 4 to be quickly addressed and resolved, potentially through a Beta 4.1 release.
For users with eligible Pixel devices already enrolled in Google’s Android Beta program, Beta 4 will be received as an over-the-air software update. Those wishing to enroll their device in the program can do so through Google’s Android Beta program page. Once enrolled, it may take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours to receive the latest beta build as a software update.
