OnePlus makes frequent updates to its OxygenOS using feedback and inputs about new features from its users through its Open Beta program. The manufacturer’s smartphones receive these updates almost every other fortnight, which makes the older handsets almost at par with the new ones.
OnePlus 5/5T to offer Digital WellBeing, Fnatic Mode and Wind Down Features
Following the Open Beta 34 and 32 updates for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T Android 9.0 Pie handsets, the two smartphones will now be able to offer the Digital Wellbeing feature for its users. This feature will help them keep a tab on how much time they spend on their smartphones. For example, users can analyze their usage based on parameters such as overall time spent, number of device unlocks and individual notifications received for each app.
Another key update is the Fnatic mode that the manufacturer introduced in OnePlus 7 Pro. This feature will enhance the network performance and reception of the smartphones, making them a gamer’s delight with immersive gaming experience. The Wind Down feature allows minimizing bedtime usage by setting the colors of the handsets to grayscale mode automatically.
Finally, the OxygenOS Betas also help the devices offer more security than before with the security patches offered by Google in June 2019. These updates are available for installation through both incremental and full OTA download.
More updates can be expected
OnePlus 5/5T handsets users can expect a few more updates in the future. One major update is the availability of Android Q for both smartphones.
They will also receive other interesting features of the OnePlus 7 Pro such as RAM Boost, Zen Mode, DC Dimming and Screen Recorder. All these features will support better usage of smartphones.
The manufacturer has also begun taking steps to roll out Open Beta 20 and Open Beta 12 for its OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T smartphones. Once this happens, these devices will support the same features as the latest Open Beta updates for OnePlus 5/5T.
