Battery life will be improved
Android 14 will also focus on improving battery life.
It won’t be a huge change, but it will improve battery life by improving background tasks.
Google is also bringing back an old feature that was removed in Android 12.
With this feature, users will be able to see how much time they spent looking at the screen after the last full charge of the phone, which will help users determine which apps are sucking up their battery the most.
Notification flashes are not a new feature, some companies’ phones already have such a feature, but now it is being made an official part of the operating system.
If a user opts for this feature, the phone’s flashlight or screen will flash when a notification is received.
Greater control over apps’ access to files
Android 14 is introducing a new option that will allow users to restrict access to photos for specific apps.
Fonts can be made larger
Android devices have been using large fonts for a long time, but now this feature is being improved.
The option to increase the font size up to 200% from Google will be given in Android 14.
It will not be possible to install old apps
Android 14 will prevent old apps from being installed.
According to Google, the purpose of this feature is to prevent the use of apps that were developed for Android 5 or earlier operating versions.
In this way, the security of the phones will be improved as the use of old apps poses a threat to privacy and security.
