TL;DR
  • 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.

Earlier today, Google officially rolled out the Pixel Feature Drop for June 2024. Most notably, this Drop included Gemini Nano support for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8a, which is great news for folks who own those phones.

Alongside this Feature Drop, Google is also rolling out 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 launch to the general public. Google has been testing QPR3 since February, so it’s come a long way. It is available for the Pixel 5a and all devices launched after.

This is a follow-up to the latest QPR3 beta 2.2 release, which landed in May. We expect many early adopters have already moved on to the betas of Android 15, but there are folks who are still hanging on Android 14 who will appreciate this update.

Since we’re late in the game now, there aren’t too many new features in Android 14 QPR3, but it does also include the June 2024 security patch. Here’s Google’s official changelog:

  • Battery & Charging
    • Fix for stability or performance improvements in certain conditions
