The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are being treated to fresh OxygenOS updates. Both phones are receiving stable OxygenOS 11.2.8.8, which bumps the security patch level, fixes bugs and issues, and adds a couple of new features.

The most notable change in the new update is Bitmoji AOD, a feature that allows you to add your personal Bitmoji avatar on the Always-On ambient display. This avatar will change throughout the day based on your activity and things happening around you. After installing the new update, the OnePlus 9 series users can find the Bitmoji AOD feature under Settings > Customization > Clock on ambient display > Bitmoji. OxygenOS 11.2.8.8 also bumps the security patch level to July 2021 and brings along the new OnePlus Store app — first launched in North America back in April.
