In the first week of September, OnePlus, rolled out the first Android 9.0 Pie-based OxygenOS Open Beta update for the OnePlus 6 (Review). Days after, it even came up with the Open Beta 2 update, offering optimised multi-tasking UI, stability for Wi-Fi connection, optimised image quality, and much more. Well, now without further ado, the company has released yet another update for the OnePlus 6: the OxygenOS Open Beta 3 which is 209MB in size. Considering this fast roll out taking place with multiple Beta updates, we don’t think that the debut of the stable version is that far away from now. Well, let’s dig in to find out what changelog this newer Beta 3 brings in.
OnePlus 6: OxygenOS Open Beta 3 update
The first two Beta update in its form undoubtedly were not that steady, as those had some minor issues including: Google Pay and third-party applications not working, crashing of apps and some more. Now that we have the Open Beta 3 out for the OnePlus 6, it brings fixed stability to ambient display, stability for face and fingerprint unlock, and added support for opening Google Assistant by holding the power button for 0.5 seconds. Moving onto the other major points other than system features, the Open Beta 3 also has added support for parallel apps which now offers the use of: Telegram, Discord, IMO, Uber and OLA.
Last but not the least, the device also has optimised the ‘OnePlus Switch’ App which brings manual connection method for connection issues, backup, recovery, bug fixes and support for more models. Similar to the last two Open Beta updates, the Beta 3 also has known issues like: non-workable third-party apps and the use of Google Pay’s restrictions.
