OxygenOS beta 31/29/17/9 for the OnePlus 5/5T/6/6T rolls out with new system update UI, overheating warning, quick reply improvements, and more
OnePlus’ OxygenOS is often hailed as one of the best ways to experience Android. Besides the fluid and nimble animations, OxygenOS offers a great variety of customization options that are left out of stock Android – without making the interface feel bloated. OnePlus routinely introduces fresh and useful features via its Open Beta channels to gather testers’ feedback before incorporating them into the stable builds of OxygenOS. The Open Betas are rolled out almost every fortnight to ensure that issues in any particular feature are ironed out before the majority of users get them. Now, OnePlus is rolling out the latest Open Beta builds for OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T bringing some changes in the UI and performance improvements.
Among the major changes, the latest OxygenOS Open Beta for the OnePlus 6/6T as well as OnePlus 5/5T brings a new interface for the system updater. Additionally, it now extends the quick reply feature in landscape orientation, that was added in the previous Open Beta update, and adds Quick Reply support for some more instant messaging apps.
There are a number of minor changes listed in the changelog, as below:
- Display overheating device warning
- New UI for system update
- Quick reply in landscape
- Supported more IM APPs for Quick Reply in landscape
- Apps don’t get paused when using quick reply in landscape
- Optimized search experience by adding search field, and grouping search results in different categories
- Improved the UI of Social page
- Optimized Log recording in Bug Report section
- File Manager (only for OnePlus 6/6T)
- Added the Intelligent cleanup feature (India only）
In order to actively seek feedback from users running beta as well as stable builds of OxygenOS, OnePlus recently updated the UI of the Community app majorly and is now adding some more changes to the Social page, improving the Search functionality, and optimizing the Log recording.
Additionally, there’s a new cleanup feature for the Indian users, which should help them get rid of cache, unused files, or APKs after installation. Further, the overheating warning shall inform you when you’ve been using your smartphone for too long and might need to give it some rest to prevent any internal damage.
