Android 14 is ready to make its public debut, as confirmed by the recent release of the first quarterly beta platform for Android 14. Telus, a Canadian carrier, has now officially revealed the stable rollout dates for Android 14. Google is planning to release the major upgrade alongside the new Pixel 8 phones at the Made by Google event on October 4.
Telus regularly updates its support forum with the new software rollout timelines and the Pixel phones join the timeline. According to the listings, the Pixel 4a (5G) and later models will receive the anticipated Android 14 aka Android U update on October 4.
Thanks to Mishaal Rahman and Reddit user u/blanco2701 for sharing this information, here’s the screenshot of the rollout timeline.
Remember, Google typically releases stable Android updates alongside the launch of Pixel phones. Two years ago, Android 12 debuted alongside the Pixel 6 phones. However, this pattern changed with the Android 13 update, which arrived before the release of the Pixel 7 series. Now, Google has returned to its usual schedule of releasing updates alongside new Pixel phone launches.
Telus has updated its support forum and removed the Android 14 ETAs for Pixel phones. However, we can expect it will be released with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro at the Made by Google event. Telus also says, “All dates are approximate and subject to change.”
Now, if you own the Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, or Pixel 7a, then your phone will receive a major software upgrade in a matter of time. As it is a substantial upgrade, it will require more data for downloading, I suggest you to install the update over WiFi.
You will receive the update notification on your device once released, or you can check the updates manually inside the Software Updates settings.
