Google has released the latest monthly update for the Pixel devices it still supports, starting from the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. This update is still Android 13, which suggests that the recent rumor about the delay of the official stable Android 14 release until next month might be true after all.
Initially, we expected the final version of Android 14 to be released in August, based on the timeline that Google had shown during its beta testing of the upcoming operating system version. However, in August, the company unexpectedly initiated another beta release cycle, followed by a few bug fix releases. Consequently, we find ourselves already in the middle of September without the official release being launched.
Therefore, it’s possible that the company has indeed decided to postpone the release until early October, coinciding with the official announcement of new devices.
Anyway, today’s update is identified as build TQ3A.230901.001 on most devices. However, some regional and carrier variants may have a one-letter plus one-number suffix. Unlike the “feature drops” that introduce new features every three months, this update is primarily focused on fixing bugs and addressing security issues.
As is customary with Google releases, it may take a few days, or even longer, for all supported devices to receive the update notification.
