Android 14 Beta 3 is rolling out, Pixel 7a joins the party

Google has taken one more step in the Android 14 development phase and released the beta 3 firmware. The latest version has a massive list of fixes that resolves the contaminated section of your Pixel handset. Surprisingly this time, Google Pixel 7a is also in the rollout distribution list and will fetch the new iteration.

In addition, the Android 14 Beta 3 release brings good and stable news. Eventually, it lays the first Platform Stability milestone with APIs (level 34) and completed system behaviors. Perhaps, developers are said to initiate the final testing and development work for the official version that will soon step on the user floor.

Speaking of which, the third Android 14 beta comes with the UPB3.230519.008 and weighs around 1.0GB. It further packs the May 2023 security patch and is available from Pixel 4a to Pixel 7 series, including the newest Pixel 7a.

Before your move to the changelog, here are some defects that could make their way to your phone with the latest build. For instance, the system UI may cause the screen to flicker when a video is playing or an app is using the picture-in-picture mode.

In some cases, the video continues playing in the background even after closing an app, especially if the video was in picture-in-picture mode. This could also react as a sudden break in the video when the back gesture is used.

A system issue can sometimes cause the Android System Intelligence service to crash. On the other hand, when using a device with a work profile, the Google Play Store app in the work profile hangs or crashes when launched. Lastly, some issues in the Credential Manager platform may lead to instability in apps.
