- Although OnePlus 5 and 5T had Android 9 Pie long ago, they did not have the Digital Wellbeing feature
- The devices will also get the Fnatic Mode which will help improve the experience for gamers
One of the reasons why the OxygenOS of the OnePlus phones is so revered is because of its frequent updates and the features it ships to the users. OnePlus puts in a lot of time to gain reviews from its users about the features on the Beta update and then refines its OS to ship only the best to the OnePlus users. The OxygenOS Open Beta updates are available for the users every two weeks, and these are the ones through which the users receive the latest update and the features on their devices. Now we have already seen the OnePlus 5, and OnePlus 5T receive the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update a few days back, but now these devices will be getting the OxygenOS Beta updates.
OxygenOS Open Beta 32/34 Details
These OxygenOS Open Beta update 32 and 34 for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T respectively bring the Digital Wellbeing feature onboard these devices. It is already known that Digital Wellbeing is one of the most prominent features of Android 9 Pie and even though these phones had Android 9 Pie for a long time now, they will be getting the Digital Wellbeing feature with the new Open Beta updates. The Digital Wellbeing feature is a handy feature which allows the users to track and mind the time that they are spending on their smartphone. The feature breaks down their phone usage and gives the users stats like the number of times they unlocked their phone, time spent and the number of notifications per app. Features like Wind Down also help the users in cutting down the usage of the phone during bedtime by turning colours to greyscale.
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T Getting Fnatic Mode
Apart from Digital Wellbeing, another major feature which the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will get owing to this update is the Fnatic Mode which we first got to see in the latest OnePlus 7 Pro. The Fnatic Mode boosts the resources of the device to provide a better gaming experience to the users. Not only this, but other features which have been limited to the higher variants of OnePlus like the Zen Mode, Screen Recorder, DC Dimming are also expected to arrive on the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T soon. The two smartphones are also expected to be updated to Android Q real soon.
Also, only two days back the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T have received the OxygenOS 9.0.6 update which brings the May 2019 Security Patch to the phones. This stable OxygenOS update for the 5th gen OnePlus phone also brings some general bug fixes and improvements. This update has also brought the quick pairing functionality for the Bullets 2 Wireless headphones.
