Redesigned OnePlus Weather app begins rolling out on Play Store beta channel
Earlier this month, OnePlus released its latest Android 11 developer preview for the OnePlus 8 series. The release included the latest version of OnePlus’ Android skin, OxygenOS 11 (known as HydrogenOS 11 in China), which featured a bunch of changes for the company’s stock apps and a couple of new features. The update included the new Always-on Display feature, changes to notifications, a redesigned Weather app, and more. While a stable version of the software is yet to make its way to OnePlus devices, the company has now started rolling out the redesigned Weather app in the beta channel for all OnePlus devices.
The updated OnePlus Weather app has started rolling out via the Google Play Store to users who are enrolled in the beta program, and it features a redesigned interface. As you can see in the attached screenshots, the Weather app now has an entirely new look, which makes it easier for you to understand the weather information.
The app replaces the 2D weather graphics on the home screen with more realistic graphics that denote the current weather conditions and the time of day. The city, temperature, and weather information now have an increased font size, which makes it easier for users to check the weather at a glance.
The new interface also shows humidity and perceived temperature information, and the weather forecast UI at the bottom now displays both hourly and daily weather forecast. The forecast information is displayed within translucent cards, which makes it easier to see the white font on a light background.
However, to accommodate the new forecast panels, the new UI doesn’t include a graph to display the hourly temperature variation. Furthermore, the city selection page on the app has received a visual refresh, and it also displays realistic graphics instead of the older 2D graphics.
As mentioned earlier, the redesigned OnePlus Weather app has already started rolling out to users enrolled in the beta program via the Google Play Store. In case you’re enrolled in the beta program and haven’t received the update yet, you can follow the Play Store link below to update to the latest version. If you’re not a part of the beta program and still wish to try out the new app, you can download the APK from APKMirror and sideload it on your device. We’ve tested the APK on a OnePlus 3T running Android 9.0 Pie and OnePlus 8 Pro running Android 10, and it works without any issues. The app should work on all OnePlus devices running Android 8.0 Oreo or later.
