OnePlus is now reaching out to its most engaged audience, forum posters, to get feedback on how it should evolve its software experience. OxygenOS, praised for being one of the best and most useful Android software skins beside Google's, might now end up being shaped with advice from community members. OnePlus will rank ideas by which ones get the most likes with the top five ideas set to be discussed, reviewed, and replied to by the software team. Feasible ideas might be adopted into future OxygenOS releases.
