Vivo has announced that it will launch Funtouch OS 14, its custom Android skin based on Android 14, on October 7 in India. The update will be rolled out to eligible Vivo and iQoo users starting 12 pm IST.
While Vivo has not yet revealed the full list of features and changes that will come with Funtouch OS 14, it has promised to provide a “smoother experience.” The company is also yet to announce the list of eligible devices.
However, based on the Android 14 beta that Vivo released for the X90 Pro in September, we can expect some of the following features in Funtouch OS 14:
- New UI design elements, such as a redesigned notification panel
- Enhanced security and privacy features
- Improved battery life

Vivo is one of the few smartphone manufacturers that has been quick to provide Android updates to its devices. The company has already released Android 13 updates to several of its devices, including the X90 Pro, X80 Pro, and V25 Pro.
What to expect from Funtouch OS 14
In addition to the features mentioned above, we can also expect Funtouch OS 14 to include some of Vivo’s own custom features and integrations. For example, the company may include its own version of the Google Discover feed, as well as its own app store and music streaming service.
Vivo may also include some features that are specific to the Indian market. For example, the company may include support for Indian languages and regional features.
