Wallet has also received an update to more easily upload entry tickets with bar and QR codes using a photo tool.

The Lookout application that provides descriptions of screens for the visually impaired is now able to describe things more intelligently and answer follow questions. Furthermore, Android Auto now supports Zoom and Webex meetings, audio-only.

New font and update robot avatar

More remarkably, the Android logo and robot avatar are also getting a makeover in Android 14. The font used is going to look more like Google’s own and will get an uppercase A instead of a lowercase letter.
