“The Oxygen OS Open Beta 1 update will give OnePlus 6T users access to new features ahead of most buyers of the handset”
Good news for OnePlus 6T (review) users – they can be part of OnePlus Oxygen OS’s Open Beta program for the smartphone starting today. With this, OnePlus 6T users will get the latest features the company tests for the custom OS earlier than non-beta users. Once the company has received feedback on the new features and ironed out the kinks, they will be released to all users in the form of a stable update. The OnePlus 6T Open Beta 1 update is already available for download but doesn’t bring too many notable features.
With the new OnePlus 6T Open Beta 1 update, you get Android security patch for the month of December and support for migrating data from iPhones. Other features include notifications when parallel apps are unavailable due to data corruption, call history for incoming calls from unknown numbers, and an optimised UI for spam messages and calls.
In order to enrol for OnePlus 6T Oxygen OS beta program, you’ll have to download the ZIP file provided by the company on its forum. The file is 1.6GB in size. It’s worth mentioning that the update is in beta form and, hence, may not be as stable as the stable updates. OnePlus warns that by installing this update, you accept the potential risks.
