Google Assistant’s Ambient Mode is rolling out to OnePlus phones
At the IFA trade show last year, Google announced a new feature for the Google Assistant called Ambient Mode. The feature is designed to turn any Android smartphone or tablet into a smart display. You can use the smart display to show information from your calendar, the current weather, notifications, reminders, music controls, and smart home controls. You can even use it to display a photo slideshow from Google Photos, which is a great way to repurpose old Android tablets. At launch, the feature was only made available for two tablets — the Lenovo Smart Tab M8 HD and Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab — and two smartphones — the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2. Now, the feature is finally rolling out to OnePlus devices.

In a recent post on the OnePlus Forums, the company announced a partnership with Google to bring the Google Assistant-powered Ambient Mode to OnePlus devices. The mode will be available for all OnePlus devices starting from the OnePlus 3. In order to use the mode, you’ll first have to connect your device to the charger, click on the new notification and then follow the steps in the setup process. Alternatively, you can open up the Google App, head over to the Assistant tab, select your device and then enable the Ambient Mode from the subsequent menu. As with all updates from OnePlus, the new Ambient Mode is rolling out to devices in a staged fashion and it might take up to a week to reach all eligible devices.
