Android 14 is here: From features to eligible devices, here’s everything you need to know:


It’s fair to say that Android is now a mature operating system. Google is seemingly done with tinkering with how the operating system looks and is instead focusing on how it feels. That grows more apparent with Android 14. The update, as expected, doesn’t bring about groundbreaking features or visual changes (except for the snazzy lock screen customisation). Rather, it prioritises improving existing functions and oiling up stuff under the hood so that everything runs smoother than before. Let’s take a look.


Android 14 top features:

Lock screen customisation-

Android users have long appreciated the ability to personalise their home screens, but with Android 14, the customisation game has reached a new level. The update introduces a lock screen picker, lock screen templates, a monochromatic theme, and support for Ultra HDR images. But it doesn't stop there – Android 14 also lets users create parallax effect wallpapers from their own photos, craft cartoon-style wallpapers with their favourite emojis, and even generate AI-powered wallpapers based on text prompts.

Notification flashes-

Notification flashes have been available on some Android smartphones and iPhones, but with Android 14 it now becomes a part of the operating system. The feature lets you use your camera's flash as a notification light and should come in handy for hearing-impaired users.
