Google is set to launch its new generation of Pixel smartphones called Pixel 8 series. It is also rumoured that the company will be launching its most-awaited software update, Android 14. Earlier, it was reported that the update would be rolled out at the beginning of September, however, Google delayed its launch. During the launch event, Google might also showcase what’s new coming in the latest software release. Check out the release date for Android 14 and the list of eligible Pixel smartphones.
According to a report by 9To5Google, Android 14 will start rolling out on Google Pixel smartphones on the same day as the Pixel 8 series launch. The report also quoted a Canadian carrier, Telus which stated the new Android software update will be made available in Google Pixel 7a, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7, Pixel 6a, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, Pixel 5, and Pixel 4a (5G) on October 4. The source stated, “Please note posted dates reflect when the update is targeted for release but can take a few weeks to roll out to all devices.” Earlier, it was also rumoured that the Pixel 4a (Non-5G) version is not eligible for Android 14 and now the latest list also confirms the claims.
