Google has releasedAndroid 14 QPR3 (Quarterly Platform Release) alongside the June 2024 security patch and June Feature Drop for Pixel devices. This update is primarily targeted towards Pixel users who haven’t yet upgraded to the Android 15 betas and are still on Android 14.

For those unaware, the QPR program allows Pixel owners to test upcoming features before their official release. To that effect, QPR3 has been in testing since February and being refined further since.

While Android 14 QPR3 (build AP2A.240605.024) may not introduce groundbreaking features, it focuses on improving the overall user experience. The update is available for the Pixel 5a and all subsequent models, including the Pixel Fold and Pixel Tablet. Users currently on QPR3 beta 2.2 can expect an over-the-air (OTA) notification for this latest release.

Google’s official changelog highlights several key areas of improvement, including battery and charging optimizations, Bluetooth LE audio enhancements, camera stability fixes, and general system stability and performance upgrades. Additionally, the update addresses display, framework, telephony, and user interface issues. Here is the full changelog:
