Google has just started working on the next major Android version, Android 14. The company recently introduced the first developer preview, which is available on the official site of Google; however, the software is simply compatible with select Pixel devices. According to the developer preview changelog, we got to see some improvements in the working of apps, battery optimization, and making a more smooth user experience.
Android 14 availability
Google introduces a new Android version every year at approximately the same time, so if we take the previous timeline of Android updates, it will get the second developer preview of Android 14 at the end of March, and then the company will introduce beta updates from the April and then moving ahead the stable update will be available by June. However, the mentioned updates will be limited to select-pixel smartphones.

Just like last year, we will see the beta version updates of the new One UI (One UI 6.0) in the flagship devices, including Galaxy S23, Galaxy Z Fold4, Flip4, Galaxy S22, and the fifth generation folding phones from the starting week of August, then in the next month, i.e., October 2023, we will receive the stable update of One UI 6.0 in any of the flagship devices, last time the Galaxy S22 was the first device which has got the stable update.
Like every year, the One UI Beta Program will be open to participants in China, Germany, India, Poland, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
As you know, the One UI is just a skin that is based on Android OS, which means you will get all the new features of Android 14 with One UI 6.0. In the developer preview, it has been confirmed that some new changes can be seen, like bigger fonts with non-linear scaling, block installation of apps, separate Bluetooth and Wifi options, and more.

Recently Dashlane, a subscription-based password manager, revealed in an official blog post that Dashlane would add the native support of passkeys in Android devices, including Galaxy phones, with Android 14 or, we can say, One UI 6 update (for Samsung devices). It will provide the device support of passkeys within third-party applications, which means it will not be limited to Dashlane only but will reach the other apps as well.
