OnePlus Game Space 2.3.7 lets you add games in Hidden Space and hints at a new “Moments” section
OnePlus’ OxygenOS software includes the company’s Game Space app. This is an app similar to other OEM “game centers” as it gives users some additional features for gaming. It comes pre-installed, but it’s now updated through the Google Play Store. A new feature is available in Game Space 2.3.7 and some strings point to more on the way.
First up is the ability to add games to your list that are in OnePlus Launcher’s “Hidden Space.” “Hidden Space” is a feature that allows users to hide apps from appearing in the app drawer. Users can even set a password to protect these hidden apps. Previously, users couldn’t add hidden games to Game Space, but now an exception has been made. When adding games to Game Space, tap the three-dot menu icon and select “Show apps in Hidden Space.”
Next up are some new strings in OnePlus Game Space 2.3.7. These strings mention a new “Moments” section. We can see a few messages such as “no captured moments found” and “view all in-game captured moments.” It sounds like a new section to store screenshots and screen recordings of your gameplay. The Moments tab will be divided by “Recent” and “Games.” It should be a nice way to see all of your gaming clips in one area.
<string name="moments_empty_primary_text">No captured moments found</string> <string name="moments_empty_summary_text">All the screenshots, screen recording captured in-game are stored here</string> <string name="moments_folder_item_count">%1$s items</string> <string name="moments_guide_text">View all in-game captured moments</string> <string name="moments_tab_all">RECENT</string> <string name="moments_tab_game">GAMES</string> <string name="moments_title">Moments</string>
Although the Moments feature doesn’t seem to be live yet, the two unexported Activities for the feature can be launched already via shell.
As mentioned, the Hidden Space feature is present in OnePlus Game Space 2.3.7 and the strings suggest the Moments section will be available in an upcoming version. If you do a lot of gaming on your OnePlus phone, these features can really improve the experience and make it seem like a full-fledged gaming phone.
