OnePlus TV Q/U Series update will bring a MultiCast feature for casting up to 4 devices simultaneously

OnePlus has been busy bringing new features to its OnePlus TV Q and U Series, and it’s prepping even more goodies in an update scheduled for November.

OnePlus posted on its forums detailing the new features coming in OTA6, with the main highlight being MultiCast. The feature allows up to four devices to cast to a single OnePlus TV, which OnePlus says can come in handy in multiple scenarios, including multiplayer gaming, working on group projects, or simply watching multiple content at the same time.

Here’s the full changelog of everything that’s coming in OTA6:

  • Support new features on OnePlus Connect: User Metrics (check Screen time and Data usage), Power-off Timer, other feedback points
  • OxygenPlay: add a new page – “My Video”, which provides a more personalized watching experience.
  • Optimize screen casting with Miracast and MultiCast (casting up to four devices to the OnePlus TV)

OnePlus said the update is also introducing features based on user feedback. One of which is a power-off timer, allowing users to set a timer to turn their TV off automatically, such as when they’re going to bed. There’s also a new user metrics feature, which provides feedback for stats like screen time and date usage.

OTA6 builds on an update that was released over the summer and introduced features like Data Saver Plus, Kids Mode, and OxygenPlay. Speaking of OxygenPlay, the upcoming update will introduce a “My Videos” page, which features watch history, watchlist, and reminders. “You’ll be able to freely resume the episode you stopped a night ago, and easily catch up with shows and movies that were added to your watchlist.”

OnePlus said the new system update will be available in November for OnePlus TV Q and U Series. If you own a OnePlus TV Y Series, the company said a third system update is coming, but they didn’t provide an exact timeframe.
