The popular Lineage OS ROM just got updated to Android 14 with build version 21 in stable channel. This brings the Android 14 goodies introduced at the MadeByGoogle ‘23 Keynote Event. Although Google is set to release the first developer preview of Android 15 today, Lineage OS development is taking small steps in releasing a more stable Android 14 version, QPR1, starting today for all supported Android devices. Here, download Lineage OS 21 based on Android 14.

Android 14 features

Google has listed 14 new Android 14 features. As Lineage OS is a firmware close to AOSP, most of these features will be present in the custom ROM as well.

  • Lock screen clock and shortcut customization
  • Monochromatic system theme option
  • Separate ringtone and notification sound adjustment
  • Improved photo quality with Google Camera 9.0
  • New camera layout including the Pro interface
  • Generative AI wallpapers (temporarily exclusive to Pixel 8)
