The OnePlus 5T might be OnePlus's latest product, but that doesn't mean the company's stopped supporting its older hardware. After pushing out Android 8.0 Oreo to the OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5, there's now a new OxygenOS Open Beta for the 3/3T that has a pretty lengthy changelog.
Perhaps the most notable addition with this latest version of the Open Beta is the new OnePlus Notes app. Along with taking regular text-based notes, you can also share notes you take as pictures and add them to the Shelf with the Memo widget.
OnePlus also has a new widget for its Weather app, and there are enhancements when copying and editing for OxygenOS's Quick Clipboard feature.
The File Manager now has a new category for large files and improvements in speed when deleting bigger files, and general System updates include:
- Added OTG toggle in Quick Settings
- Added notification when 3rd party apps delete contacts
- Updated Android security patch to December
- General bug fixes and improvements
This version of the OxygenOS Open Beta is v29 for the OnePlus 3 and v20 for the 3T, but OnePlus says that it's temporarily stopped the rollout due to a "small issue." The update will be resumed once this is fixed, and we'll update the article accordingly when that happens.
