Delhi : News about Android 14 QPR1 beta releases has surfaced within the last several weeks. The December 2023 Pixel feature drop will include the new features from these betas. However, Google has released the first beta of Android 14 QPR2, which will be available in March 2024. The Android 14 QPR1 beta program is officially closed as of the release of this latest beta. The last Pixel feature release of the year, which includes the things we've seen in that test program, will happen in December.

Additionally, Google contributes these features to the Android Open-Source Project (AOSP), so standard Android has them. Some functions will only be available on Pixel devices initially, but the majority should be available under Android skins like Samsung's One UI.
