OnePlus TV update improves Netflix connectivity and adds support for third party AirPlay service apps
At the OnePlus 7T (review) launch event late last year, the company officially unveiled its first Android-powered QLED 4K smart TV lineup. In our review, we found the new OnePlus TV to be a great premium offering in the Android TV space, however, it lacked a couple of software features that were available in TVs from other manufacturers. Soon after the launch, OnePlus rolled out a couple of updates for the TVs with new lighting effects for the soundbar and official Netflix support, along with a new remote with a dedicated Netflix button.
Earlier this year in February, the company rolled out another major update for the TVs which added Spotify, MX Player, Voot, and other content integrations to the software. Now, according to a recent post on the OnePlus forums, the company has started rolling out OnePlus TV OTA4, which brings improvements to Netflix connectivity and adds support for third-party AirPlay service apps.
Here’s the complete changelog for the latest OnePlus TV OTA update:
- Match the setting value of Color Space, Brightness and MEMC with actual display effect more accurately.
- Enhanced Ultra Smooth effect to make it more obvious in display.
- Corrected the version rollback issues of certain downloaded apps after OTA upgrade.
- Improved the experience around Netflix server connectivity.
- Fixed the MX Player installation error.
- Added support for third party AirPlay service apps.
Much like previous OTA updates for the OnePlus TV, the latest update is being rolled out in an incremental fashion and will only reach a small percentage of users initially. The OTA update should be available for all users over the next few days after OnePlus confirms that there aren’t any major bugs in the update. In case you don’t wish to wait for the broader rollout or want to help OnePlus test the latest release, you can share your TV’s serial number with Catherine W. from the OnePlus TV team to receive an early version of the OTA.
