Android 14 Work Profile feature

With the Android 14, Google has introduced new features to its Work Profile. According to the Google support blog, the Work Profile enables Android users to separate their work apps and data from personal apps and data. This helps users to separately manage their work and personal life in a single device. Now, with the Android 14 new feature, users will be able to switch between accounts easily with just a sideways swipe.

According to a 9To5Google report, a quick swipe to the side on the profile picture in the top-right corner will allow you to switch between your personal and Work Profiles. There is more to the new feature. Android users can now take screenshots of their work-related data and it will be automatically saved in their work profile instead of their device which has a mix of everything. Also, while screen sharing or casting on a conference room screen, users will be able to limit their casting to only a single app. This will allow you to avoid the unintentional sharing of your personal screen content on a certain app.

Additionally, Android users will be able to change their work profile settings and policies according to their preferences. This new feature can boost privacy and control over users' actions.

Lastly, Google also announced various other features of Android 14 such as passkey support, lock screen customizations, AI wallpaper generator, health and fitness features, and more. The Android 14 is now available for Pixel users. The update will soon be made available to other brand devices later this year.
