The Google I/O conference unveiled the second beta version of Android 14. In contrast to the first version, which was only compatible with the current Google Pixel, the second version adds support for Google partners, including nine companies: OPPO, iQOO, Realme, Lenovo, Tecno, Nothing, Vivo, and Xiaomi.
Similar to the first beta, the second update is primarily targeted towards developers. It is not recommended for ordinary users to install it due to potential bugs that could impact the device’s daily use. Nevertheless, the second version has already addressed the most critical bugs.
Android 14 introduces support for HDR when recording video, as well as Ultra HDR to preserve the complete dynamic range of images. This feature provides more options for post-processing photos.
Another new feature of Android 14 is the ability to capture high-quality photos in low light by shooting with a slower shutter speed.
In addition, the Android 14 update provides more control over the data transfer of geolocation, and for audiophiles, it has added Lossless audio support when using USB headphones. For more information on other innovations, please refer to our article.
