OnePlus TV update improves OnePlus Connect experience and enhances audio quality on the Y Series
OnePlus entered the smart TV segment in India last year with the launch of two 4K QLED TVs. The premium Q Series TVs (review) were launched at a starting price of ₹70,000 (~$990 at the time) and were heavily criticized for their pricing. In response, OnePlus launched two new smart TV series in the Indian market earlier this year, which start at just ₹12,999 (~$175). The mid-range OnePlus TV U series also introduced a bunch of new software features that were developed based on feedback received on its debut TV series. While these features were released for the older OnePlus TV Q series shortly after the launch, they weren’t released for the budget-friendly Y Series. Now, the company is rolling out an OTA update for the OnePlus TV Y series, which includes a couple of new features and improvements.
As per a recent post on the OnePlus Community forums, the latest OTA update for the OnePlus TV Y series addresses some of the key concerns raised by the community following its launch. Here’s the complete changelog for the OTA 2 update for the entry-level TVs:
- More skills added to work with Alexa
- Optimized OnePlus Connect experience by offering a better connection between Mobile and TV
- Optimized Audio Quality in default settings
- Optimized the system and memory usage for smoother experience
As with all OTA updates from OnePlus, the latest update for the OnePlus TV Y Series will be incremental. This means that the OTA update will only reach a handful of users at first. Once the company confirms that there aren’t any major issues with the update, it should roll out to all users in the coming days. Sadly, the latest OTA update still doesn’t include some of the new features introduced with the U series, including Data Saver Plus, Kids Mode, and OxygenPlay.
