Google will implement stronger measures when it comes to obsolete apps being installed on new devices, according to a recently reported code update. Android will no longer permit sideloading of apps that are intended for earlier OS versions as of version 14.
Google currently prohibits newly listed apps from aiming at Android versions older than 12, although it still permits users to sideload older apps. Additionally, Google Play still permits you to download older apps that you have already downloaded.
As we previously stated, Android 14 will change all of that. It will take advanced technical knowledge to sideload programmes utilising the command shell and a new flag that permits installation. Users won’t be able to unintentionally download unsafe programmes to their phones this way.
Additionally, Google is rumoured to be developing its own version of the location tag. Kuba Wojciechowski, a developer and trustworthy leaker, claims that the company is developing a smart tracker to compete with Apple’s AirTag. The device is currently known by the codename “grogu,” which was most likely inspired by the baby Yoda character from Star Wars.
