OnePlus Wants Users To Design The Next OxygenOS Feature
In the plethora of Android makers overloading their smartphones with skins and unnecessary bloatware, OxygenOS truly stands out. It is the closest a maker has gotten to stock Android with some great improvements over it. The gestures are better than the Pixel phones, there is an dark mode which works like one, and super quick updates. These are just some of the features OxygenOS offers that aren’t available in most Android devices.
Looks like it is about to get even better as OnePlus has started a competition. Called the #PMChallenge, it will let the users pitch an idea of a feature they want. Enough reasons and a good implementation and you may see the feature in the next update. OnePlus announced the competition on its forum.
OnePlus has made the process of submitting you entry fairly simple. You have to Submit a PRD (product requirements document) answering the following questions. You have to keep #PMChallenge in the title. Also, all of this needs to be posted in the Tech section before February 22.
- Who are the users?
- What is the proposed function?
- What is the user value?
- If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
The software team will check the entries and will announce the winners by mid of March. In the forum post, OnePlus says that it gets hundreds of suggestions everyday which may get overlooked. Also, by this competition, it will help them go through every suggestions and would definitely help them to make OxygenOS a better platform for its users.
We think OnePlus has justified its popularity by listening to their customers using fun interactive activities like these. OxygenOS is also turning out to be one of the best Android software experiences.
