Android 14 QPR3 June Feature Drop: rolling out to T-Mobile and Google Fi

Android 14 QPR3 (Quarterly Platform Release 3) with the June 2024 Feature Drop has begun rolling out to Pixel phones on T-Mobile and Google Fi. This update brings a range of new features and improvements to enhance the user experience on these devices.

The update was initially expected to be released on Monday, June 3, as hinted at by a support document regarding the deprecation of the VPN by Google One service. However, it was officially announced eight days later, on a Tuesday.

On June 11, the update started rolling out to some users in the US, but T-Mobile and Verizon customers were not included in the initial wave. Verizon users received the update last week with the same global build number (AP2A.240605.024), and now, on June 24, T-Mobile Pixel owners are also getting the update via an 894 MB over-the-air (OTA) package.

Additionally, a specific build for the Australian carrier Telus (AP2A.240605.024.A1) was released on June 18, indicating Google’s attention to regional requirements and carrier-specific updates.

The QPR3 update includes a few visual tweaks, but many of the new features from the June Feature Drop are delivered through app updates that also apply to QPR2. Some notable enhancements include:

  • The Google Phone app rolling out a ‘Lookup’ reverse number search feature.
  • The Pixel Recorder app now includes a ‘Record’ app shortcut.
  • Pixel VPN by Google is available, though not exclusive to Android 14 QPR3.
  • The Pixel Camera 9.4 update introduces features like Pro lens selection and HDR+.

Additionally, DisplayPort support on the Pixel 8+ and Gemini Nano (8 + 8a) requires Android 14 QPR3. Detailed information about bug fixes and other improvements can be found on Google’s support page. This update arrives just a week before the July monthly update, ensuring that Pixel users on T-Mobile and Google Fi have the latest features and enhancements for their devices.
