Android 14 Released with Productivity Tools for Teams & Individuals

Last week at their October event, Google announced the release of Android OS 14. And this latest OS comes along with other announcements related to hardware like Pixel 8 phone, the watch and the headphone and all of it. But I wanted to focus on Android OS, because if you as a church or nonprofit have been contemplating, or if you’re already using Android as your organizational phone, which you use for your staff or your volunteers, then this might be useful for you. The new announcement includes productivity tools and security tools that could be useful for your IT team, like a six digit pin lock, credential manager controls. This also has features that helps your staff and volunteers balance between their work profiles and their personal profiles, which I think could be helpful in increasing productivity and also adoption of technology within your ministry. We will link to all the details in the show notes. Check it out and pass it on to your IT team.
