OnePlus, earlier today, released OxygenOS Open Beta 25 for OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones, which brings the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. The OnePlus 3 and 3T are the flagship phones for OnePlus last year, which are succeeded by OnePlus 5. OnePlus is yet to reveal its plans to upgrade the OnePlus 5 to Android Oreo.

That said, this update is still in beta stage, so there will be some issues, but OnePlus says that the OxygenOS Open Beta 25 can be used as a daily driver.

Here’s the official changelog of the OxygenOS Open Beta 25 for OnePlus 3 and 3T:

  • System changes
    Update to Android O (8.0)
    Added Picture in Picture
    Added Auto-fill
    Added Smart text selection
    New Quick Settings design
    September security patch
  • Launcher changes
    Added Notification dots in Launcher
    Added OnePlus account login for access to Shot on OnePlus
    Now able to upload photos directly to Shot on OnePlus through wallpapers
  • Known issues:
    Fingerprint actions may be slower than you are used to.
    Shortcut to access Google Photos is unavailable
    Some stability issues with NFC and Bluetooth
    Performance and compatibility of 3rd party apps will continue to be optimized

So, the update brings in all the features of Android Oreo to both the smartphones such as Picture-in-Picture (PiP), smart autofill, smart text selection, revamped quick settings panel, and yeah, the update comes with September 2017 security patch fixes.

Speaking about the issues mentioned by OnePlus, the fingerprint scanner in both the smartphones will be a tad slower than the usual, and there’s no shortcut for Google Photos. In addition, OnePlus cites some stability issues with both NFC and Bluetooth, and the performance and compatibility of third-party apps aren’t optimised properly.

Lastly, if you want to install this Open Beta build of Android Oreo on your OnePlus 3 and 3T, you need to flash it manually. If you’re already part of OxygenOS Open Beta program, you will receive this update via an OTA update.
