Here are some updates in Android 14

Lock Screen

All new lock screen with different clock styles.There are 8 clock styles available.This feature called “Auto Confirm Unlock” is very much useful where it directly unlocks the phone just after you enter the pin i.e without pressing the enter your device unlocks after entering 4-6 digit PIN.

Ring and Notification Volume

Ring and Notification Volumes are now separate.Previously there is combined volume setting for Notification volume and Ring Volume.It’s difficult for someone who wants Lower ring volume and higher notification volume or vice versa with Android 14 you can now set separate ring and notification volume.

Flash Notification

Flash Notification is most awaited feature of android.Although there are different third party apps available stock feature is something different.Now you can turn on flash notification.Pixel flashlight blinks for every notification.Screen flash is also available where screen flashes and color changes,you can choose from 13 colors available.

Credential Manager API

This feature in Android 14 allows other password apps too instead of only one google password manager.

Health Connect

Health connect is now part of Android 14.In previous versions one need to download health connect from playstore but with Android 14 it is a system app.Now you can easily manage apps that track your activity.It gives more control over health and fitness data tracking.

Ultra HDR Images

Android 14 adds support to Ultra HDR images..It also supports 10 bit High Dynamic Range images, which are more vibrant and realistic than traditional JPEG images. This is done using the Ultra HDR format, which is fully backward compatible with JPEG images. This means that apps can seamlessly interoperate with HDR images, displaying them in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) as needed.

Stay tuned for more updates.
