The last we heard about Google’s delayed release of Android 14, it was rumored to arrive on October 4, the day after the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro announcement. There was only a rumor then. As of today, it seems to be confirmed.
It’s kind of an announcement, but Google won’t announce anything official until the day is here. Canadian carrier Telus has listed when it will begin rolling out software updates for its devices. “Android U” was listed as going out on October 4 for all Pixel devices starting with the Pixel 4a.
The internal codename for Android 14 is Android U, which is short for Android Upside Down Cake. All of the aforementioned Pixel listings said this update would be available on October 4, but it’s not there anymore.
Google probably found this being reported online and asked Telus to remove the information, which the carrier promptly did. There’s still a chance, however slim, that the information itself was incorrect, but that’s just our speculation on the matter.
In less than 48 hours, we’ll find out. We’re sure Google will announce Android 14 at its October 4 event, so stay tuned for that and we’ll let you know what happens.
