With the latest Pixel Feature Drop, Google is launching the final QPR update for Android 14

AI SUMMARY

  • Google has launched Android 14 QPR3 today, alongside the Pixel Feature Drop for June 2024.
  • There aren’t too many new features since we’re getting so close to Android 15.
  • The June 2024 Android security patch is also included.

Today, Google officially launched its June 2024 Pixel Feature Drop. Notably, the drop includes Gemini Nano support for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8a, which is good news for owners of these phones.

In addition to this feature drop, Google is also introducing Android 14 QPR3 as expected. QPR stands for Quarterly Platform Release, and it's essentially a way to try out Pixel Feature Drop updates before they're released to the general public. Google has been testing QPR3 since February, with great results. It is available for the Pixel 5a and all devices released after it.

This is a continuation of the latest QPR3 Beta 2.2 version released in May. While many early adopters are expected to have already moved over to the Android 15 Beta, there are some users still stuck on Android 14 who will appreciate this update.

It's late now, so Android 14 QPR3 doesn't have many new features, but it does include the June 2024 security patch. Here is the official changelog from Google:

Battery & Charging

  • Fix for stability or performance improvements in certain conditions
  • Fix for issues causing device to not charge in certain conditions
