New Open Beta Updates Pushed For OnePlus 3 & 3T
OnePlus has released OxygenOS Open Beta 39 and Open Beta 40 for the OnePlus 3 and the 3T, respectively. These new updates bring a few significant changes to the devices’ software. The users who have opted for the Open Beta will receive an OTA update which requires a standard installation procedure. While the users running the stable build may have to follow certain steps to sign up for the beta program.
With their latest flagship, the company has yet again taken the smartphone industry by storm. The number of OnePlus 6 sold in India in the first 10 minutes is proof enough that OnePlus has become one of the top smartphone sellers in the nation. However, the brand is not only known for the new devices that it launches but also for the software support it provides for its older devices.
The latest build for both the OnePlus 3 & 3T bring few handy features for those devices. The following is the release note for the updates as posted on the OnePlus forum by a staff member.
- Improved search tags in App drawer
- Added “New installs” category tag in App drawer
- Improved app list for hidden space and toolbox
- Optimized switching between front and rear camera
- Added capability to scrub/seek through AAC audio file timelines
The app drawer will now have improved search tags and a separate category for newly installed apps along with an improved list for apps in hidden space. The software was also optimized to quickly switch between the front and the rear camera. Apart from these features, under the hood bug fixes were also implemented with these Open Beta updates.
One thing users need to consider is that the Open Beta program is meant to test certain features so it is natural to come across bugs and bottlenecks throughout the operating system. With that said, this program is an efficient way for the company to test out new features and for OnePlus to embrace this idea, will make the usage experience better for its buyers.
