Like every year, the release of a new version of Android is a process that begins several months before. Although Android 13 was released in August, the first versions were already available in February.

History repeats itself with Android 14, although that doesn’t mean you have to install it now. As usual, developers and programmers will be the first to use the system, but it will be to be able to adapt their applications and services to the new features it will bring.
First version of Android 14
Today Google released Android 14 Developer Preview, the previous version of the system. So it’s basically the same Android 13 that a lot of people are already using on their mobile, and most of the changes are internal. For the average user, there really isn’t much reason to install this build just yet.
This does not mean that there is no news. Some of the new features that Android 14 will bring are already visible, such as more customization options. For example, we can increase font size by up to 200%, against 130% that we can extend now. In addition, a new scaling system will prevent the already large letters from being enlarged by the same amount as the rest, thus avoiding the typical problem when we increase the size.
Android 14 will also include new security measures, although not all of them will be welcomed. The most controversial is the one that prevents the installation of old applications; Android 14 will verify that all apps are built for at least Android 6.0. The rationale is that many rogue apps are based on older versions in order to circumvent the security measures implemented in newer versions. Despite this, the old applications that we have already installed will not be deleted
Plans for the release of Android 14
Google’s plans are to launch the first betas in mid-March, aiming to achieve stability between June and July. Therefore, the release of Android 14 is also scheduled for August, only one year after the release of Android 13.
For the vast majority of people, this Android 14 release means nothing but the start of a new era for the system, and we hope to see more news in the coming months.
