The second OxygenOS Oreo Beta comes to the OnePlus 5

By | 15th December 2017

At the end of last month, OnePlus began rolling out the OxygenOS Oreo beta to owners of the OnePlus 5, and today, the company released the second beta. The update includes a slew of bug fixes, as expected, along with various UI improvements and more.

What’s New: 

  • Launcher
    • Fixed widget issues
    • Fixed shortcut issues
  • Camera
    • UI Improvements
  • Files Manager
    • Added f4v format in video category
    • Speed improvements while deleting massive files.
  • System
    • Improvements to Reading Mode
    • Improvements in vibration
    • Improvements in Bluetooth audio
    • Fixed Parallel apps bugs
    • Fixed reboot issue when using Picture in Picture
    • Updated Android security patch to November
    • General bug fixes and stability improvements.

The update also brings the November Android security patch to the OnePlus 5, which is still a nice addition, even considering the fact that Pixel devices have moved to the December patch. If you want to download this latest update, you can do so by joining the Open Beta program and flashing the full version of the software.

However, since this is beta software, OnePlus knows that this isn’t for everyone as there may be bugs that render certain aspects of your phone unusable. So you can also download the build of Nougat version of OxygenOS to get things back to normal until a new beta is released which may fix any issues being had.

Let us know if you’ve been running the Oreo OxygenOS beta on your OnePlus 5 and how it’s been running for you.
