Here we are again Pixel owners, looking forward to another big Monday. So let’s see what is on the calendar. Some sort of developers conference in California is supposed to start at 10 am PDT/1 pm EDT and there might be some big deal made over a $3,000 headset. But that has nothing to do with any Pixel handset. No, those with a Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel 7a are scheduled to receive the June Feature Drop tomorrow.

If you want to go to the Android 14 Beta program, we’d advise you to wait for Platform Stability which will take place in Android 14 Beta 3. Platform Stability doesn’t mean that all of the instability of the Beta is gone, it just means that all developer APIs are finalized. We will cover this more in-depth when Android 14 Beta 3 is released. And keep in mind that once you join the Android 14 Beta program, you won’t be able to leave it without a data wipe until the final version is released in August.
If you are planning to download the June Feature Drop on your Pixel, make sure the update says Android 13 QPR3, not Android 14 Beta
We could see the June Feature Drop released for compatible Pixel models as soon as Monday at 10 am PDT/1 pm EDT. I know something is happening around that time tomorrow. To check to see if the update has arrived go to Settings > System > System update. Make sure that the update you receive is for Android 13 QPR3. If there is a delay and you don’t examine the update you’re downloading, you might accidentally end up installing the Android 14 Beta.
