Android 14 Beta 5.3 is live for Pixel smartphones with a huge list of fixes for UI glitches, calling issues, and some other troubling bugs. After hearing about the one-month delay for Android 14, it’s uncertain if this is the final beta firmware.
However, that doesn’t make an impact on the improvements and useful optimizations for Pixel devices. Consequently, Google is serving the new Android 14 Beta 5.3 with a massive changelog, containing fixes for every section of the smartphone.
On the greener side, the manufacturer continues to integrate the August 2023 security patch. Though many of us would have been looking for the September improvements at this moment. No doubt, the tech giant will bring a newly released patch in the upcoming days.
Users with Pixel 4a, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, and Pixel Fold can install the new update using the sideloading method or can wait for the OTA package. Now let’s have a look at the new fixes:
