When Google dropped Android 14 Beta 4.1 in the last week of July, we thought that might be the final prerelease version before the new OS went stable this month — after all, Android 13's beta program ended with a 4.1 release in late July ahead of a mid-August launch of the stable version. Evidently, this year's big update needs just a little more time in the oven, as Google has started seeding a surprise Android 14 Beta 5 update today.
