Upcoming Android 14 will likely change the shared sheet on supported devices

Google’s forthcoming system software update, Android 14, will reportedly change the Android device share tab.

The company has long been improving the stock sheet, but since it can only be updated with a new Android version, progress has been slow, Android Police reports.

Esper’s Mishaal Rahman spotted the tech giant developing an experimental, hidden copy of the stock sheet that resides in Android 13.

It was identical in appearance and functionality to the existing stock sheet, but unlike it was a main module.

As a result, it could be updated using Play Services, such as the Bluetooth stack or networking components, because it’s separate from Android itself, the report said.

Last month it was reported that the tech giant was working on a new feature for Android 14 that will allow Android devices to stay connected to the internet even after they get very old.

It would allow devices to update their root certificates, or digital certificates belonging to the issuing authority, on the fly, as root certificates on Android devices can currently only be updated through system updates.
