In February 2023, Google announced its schedule for Android 14. The first developer preview was released on the same day as the announcement. The timeline for Android 14 closely follows that of Android 13, as planned by the company.
Google released the fifth beta version 5.3 of Android 14 on September 6, which was anticipated to be the final beta before the official release of the operating system. Surprisingly, Google also released the QPR1 Beta for Android 14, providing a glimpse of the upcoming December 2023 Pixel Feature Drop and quarterly platform update, even before the launch of Android 14.
