Google has just released the first beta version of Android 14 QPR2 for eligible Pixel phone users. This release comes with an exciting new feature under development called “Private Space.” This feature will allow users to create a separate user profile on their Android device where they can hide certain apps and items. The “Private Space” will be accessible when the screen lock is opened.
The goal of this new feature is to enhance the security and privacy of Android users. While other manufacturers like Samsung already offer similar features, “Private Space” stands out as it creates a whole new user profile. Pixel users will soon be able to create or delete a “Private Space,” with the ability to unlock it using the screen lock and make it visible.
The appearance of “Private Space” in the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 1 release suggests that it will be included in the December Feature Drop next month. However, it will not be functional until the update is released.
In the past, Google used to release updates on the first Monday of each month, but this year, they have been inconsistent. However, it is expected that the December Feature Drop will arrive on December 4th.
Unfortunately, the new update does not include builds for the latest Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models. Google has assured users that the update for these models will be released soon.
Overall, the release of Android 14 QPR2 Beta 1 with the “Private Space” feature indicates that Google is prioritizing user privacy and security. This new feature will provide Pixel users with more control over their apps and items, and hopefully, the upcoming update will address any existing issues with Pixel devices.
