OxygenOS betas 21/13 for the OnePlus 6/6T bring improvements to Weather, Screen Recorder, and Phone apps

Earlier today, OnePlus started rolling out the latest OxygenOS open beta builds for its 2018 flagship smartphones. While the changelog isn’t as exciting as the last open beta releases, Open Beta 21/13 for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T respectively add three new features and also fixes a few bugs on each device.

The first new feature is the ability to control the recording framerate of videos from the built-in screen recorder, a feature which was brought over from the OnePlus 7 Pro with open beta 19/11. The OnePlus 7 Pro’s Screen Recorder does not yet have the ability to change the FPS before recording the screen, but it’ll likely get this capability in a future stable OxygenOS release. The second new feature is the ability to rearrange or delete weather cards for multiple cities in the Weather app. Lastly, you can now edit Quick Responses in the built-in Phone app.
