Should You Upgrade to Android 14?
It depends. If you are talking about the developer preview option, we will advise you to only install it in a spare phone as it comes with bugs.
Will There be Android 14?
The short answer is Yes! However, the question is somewhat wrong because a new version, Android 14, is already in the Developer Preview mode. What is developer preview? It means that this Android version still has some bugs and was only released for the developers. Google released a beta version for every Android before making it live for the normal user.
However, if you have a Google Pixel phone then you can download the developer version now. It is available to download in only selected models. They are,
- Google Pixel 4a 5G
- Google Pixel 5
- Google Pixel 5a
- Google Pixel 6
- Google Pixel 6 Pro
- Google Pixel 6a
- Google Pixel 7
- Google Pixel 7 Pro
If you have one of these phones, sure you can have a small bite of the Upside Down Cake.

Actually, Google hasn’t given any official reason for naming the Android version in such a way. The new version of Android is called Upside Down Cake!
Android 14, Does It Worth the Wait?
Yes! Certain features make this Android 14 special. Upside Down Cake can come with the option to delete preinstalled apps which is some of the most awaited features along with:
- Apps installed in the background
