The next version of Android, Android 14, is set to introduce a range of new features, including a screen recording function that places a strong focus on user privacy. Mishaal Rahman, an expert in Android operating system coverage, recently had the opportunity to test a full demo of Android 14 and discovered this exciting new development.
Compared to existing screen recording options, Android 14’s feature offers a significant improvement in user privacy. In addition to the ability to record the screen, users can now hide sensitive information and incoming notifications while recording. When activated, the recording option allows for the selection of a single app to be recorded, ensuring that any sensitive information displayed on other apps or the home screen won’t be captured.
If the user exits the selected app, the recorded screen will turn black, further protecting any private information from being included in the recording.
Furthermore, Android 14 offers users even more customization options by allowing them to exclude incoming notifications from the recording. Additionally, it includes the option to hide the entire system status bar while recording, providing users with more control over the recording process and further enhancing privacy.
