Android 14 will begin early testing soon, and everyone is wondering what to expect in the next major update. According to Esper, Android 14 could bring a much-needed overhaul to the share menu. This alleviates a problem that Android users have been grappling with for some time. When sharing items with Android, you may need to find the app to share with. This is because the Share menu is pretty inconsistent on Android. Depending on the sharing source app, the arrangement of available apps may differ. The share menu itself may also vary between Android skins.
So if you’re using a Pixel phone, you’ll have a different sharing experience than if you’re using a Galaxy phone. However, once Google gains full control over the share menu, it could be more consistent across different OEMs. Very early at the moment. I don’t know if Google has already added a share sheet or if it’s still in the planning stages. So there is no visualization for this function yet. Google may start releasing the Android 14 developer preview within a month, but we still don’t know if we’ll see the new share menu. Stay tuned for more details.
This news comes from his Mishaal Rahman (via XDA Developers) and it may indicate some good news on the Android 14 front. However, this is very early news about future versions of Android. You should take it with a grain of salt. According to sources, Google may move the share menu or “Sharesheet” to the Project Mainline module. That means Google can work on that component and push updates without relying on his OEM’s input. The company manages functions. The problem is that OEMs typically want to control as much of the experience as possible.
