With the QPR1 update for Android 14, Google added a new extension for battery statistics, displaying charging cycles and battery manufacturing dates.

While this was a welcomed addition, it was also limited in its usefulness. However, this feature disappeared in the March 2024 update for Pixel phones.

According to Google in the bug tracking page, this is the intended behavior, as this page was never supposed to appear on existing devices.

Instead, the new battery statistics feature for Android is only supported to appear on Pixel 8a and future Pixel devices.

Google states, “We’re only enabling this page on Pixel 8a and later, so this page is WAI.”

So, we now know the feature that will come to future Pixel phones, in addition to getting the first official confirmation from Google regarding the arrival of Pixel 8a.

The exact reason for the feature appearing on existing Pixel units is not clear, but the statistics themselves were not particularly accurate often.

This also opens the possibility that Google intends to build upon this feature moving forward, perhaps even adding appropriate information about battery health.

The launch of Pixel 8a is expected in the coming months, likely during the Google I/O conference in May.
