Weeks after receiving a new UI and optimised search through a beta update, the OnePlus 6 duo are getting another OxygenOS Beta update which adds features from the latest OnePlus 7 onto last year’s device as was previously announced.
The update was announced by OnePlus Global Product Operations Manager Manu J who posted the changelog of the Open Beta builds in the company’s forum. The beta majorly adds a Zen Mode which disables your phone for 20 minutes, allowing you to enjoy your surroundings or simply focus on your work without being distracted.
Additionally, the OxygenOS beta adds a native screen recorder and support for VoLTE/VoWiFi for some additional networks. OnePlus notes that the beta update fixes issues inside the Facebook Messenger and offers a smoother scrolling experience with added support for PIN-TO-TOP for notification category.
The OxygenOS beta update for the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 adds May 2019 batch of Android security updates and weighs in at 365MB. Users already under beta testing can the update as an OTA while users on the stable build will have to flash the latest beta firmware. It’s important to note that once you migrate to a beta build, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs and will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
The OnePlus 6/6T and OnePlus 5/5T are also expected to receive other features from the OnePlus 7 including a Fnatic Mode, Landscape mode Quick reply, DC dimming and RAM Boost.
