  • Pixel 6a
  • Pixel 7 and 7 Pro
  • Pixel 7a

You can read the changelog of fixes in Google’s release notes, and it includes fixes for Bluetooth connections, devices crashing after a restart, devices rebooting while in idle mode, and more. This build also includes the January 2024 security patch.

Other changes that Google didn’t announce

This release also includes many changes that Google didn’t explicitly announce but are present in Android 14 QPR 2 Beta.

New popup dialog for the Bluetooth Quick Setting tile

The Bluetooth Quick Settings tile now works similarly to the Wi-Fi tile. Clicking on the tile no longer toggles Bluetooth directly but opens up a new submenu that lists your connected devices and lets you toggle the connection. While this removes the ability to toggle Bluetooth quickly, most users are more frequently looking to connect and disconnect particular devices rather than completely toggling Bluetooth.

New “Make all apps dark” setting

As spotted by Mishaal Rahman, the new update is preparing to add a new “make all apps dark” toggle under Settings > Accessibility > Color and motion.

The setting previously existed under Developer Options, and it inverts the colors of apps that don’t support a dark theme.

Taskbar pinning feature could launch soon, adds a new demo animation

Google introduced a taskbar in Android 12L, providing quick access to some apps on any screen on a large device like a tablet or foldable. This taskbar’s functionality was expanded to include your app drawer in Android 13, but it switched its state from being a persistent taskbar to a transient, floating taskbar.

As Mishaal notes, Google continues to work on letting users switch between the floating taskbar and the persistent taskbar.

Weather lockscreen clock style now shows icons for alarms and DND

The “weather” lockscreen on Google Pixel phones includes a vertical date and other unconventional styling elements, but it was missing information on alarms and DND. This update adds the appropriate icons for upcoming alarms and when Do Not Disturb mode is on.
