OnePlus 3 and 3T’s latest OxygenOS Open Beta released

OnePlus has released a new Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. This Open Beta is numbered 13 for the OnePlus 3 and 4 for the OnePlus 3T, although the changelog for both the devices is the same. It’s a pretty extensive list of changes that have been done this time, too.

The download links for Open Beta of the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are different, though, so it’s a good idea to download the correct build for your device.

It brings several new features such as new launcher with added support for shortcuts on 7.1.1, Redesigned app drawer and UI for launcher settings, Notification Denoising, Gaming Do Not Disturb mode, Automatic Night Mode, Secure Box for file encryption, Quick pay option for India and a lot of bug fixes and general improvements.

Below is the change catalog-

  • All new launcher added support for shortcuts on 7.1.1
  • Redesigned app drawer
  • Redesigned UI for launcher settings – Simplified the Settings options and added another gesture to get to them quickly, a pinch motion from the homepage of your launcher.
  • Added status bar icon option to display real time network speed
  • Added Notification Denoising – This is to allow priority levels to be assigned to peek notifications and will let you grant only the most important apps and their notifications the ability to interrupt you. This feature can be found under Settings>Device>Notifications
  • Added Gaming Do Not Disturb mode – This allows you to lock the capacitive and home buttons while gaming or in other apps where it’s easy to hit those buttons unintentionally. This feature can be found in Settings>Advanced>Gaming Mode
  • Added automatic Night Mode – You are now able to set Night Mode to activate and deactivate at a certain time or according to a specific cycle of day and night. This can be found under settings>Display>Night Mode
  • Added Secure Box for file encryption – This is for all files (including pictures and video) that should not be easily accessible to other people. It can be set up with its own pin, and once items are moved (by long pressing and selecting “set as secure” in the settings option) they can only be viewed in the secure box portion of the file manager. This can be found under Apps>File Manager>Secure Box
  • Optimized touch latency
  • Optimized camera EIS for videos
  • Improved contacts management with linking and merge functions
  • Added quick pay option for India – This will allow users to set up a QR-based quick pay feature that can be quickly accessed while the screen is either on or off with a long press of the home button. This will only activate right now if one of the following apps is installed: Paytm, WeChat, or Alipay. This can be found in Settings>Security & Fingerprint>Quick Pay
  • Bug fixes and general improvements

Users who are already on the Open Beta branch will receive this update as an OTA.
