With Android 14 finally beginning to roll out from different manufacturers, we’re bound to see more smartphone models receive the much-awaited system upgrade from Google. More recently, Sony announced that its flagship Xperia 1 V will finally be getting Android 14 via an OTA download.
The update comes with software version number 67.1.A.2.112, in addition to the October 2023 security patch for Android. As per Sony’s announcement:
The yearly Android update season is here! The long-awaited Android 14 brings you attractive new features with all kinds of updates and fun. You’re going to love it!
Now, with Android 14, if you ever lose a device like your earphones, you can find it using the Find My Device app. Share files and photos between your Xperia device and Windows computer with the new and improved Nearby Share feature. More shortcut customization options have also been added for your lock screen.
And as always, Android keeps the improvements coming on the entertainment front!
As mentioned, Android 14 for the Sony Xperia 1 V comes with enhancements for features such as Nearby Share for Windows, Find My, as well as instant lock screen customization (which works very similar to what we’ve seen on the Pixel). Sony has also brought over the Video Creator app, which allows users to edit their video clips into more refined content.
