OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 just received a major boost as new update released

OnePlus 6T and the OnePlus 6 were the Chinese OEM’s two flagship smartphones for 2018.

Both continued the company’s signature ethos of delivering some of the best value smartphones on the market.

Although OnePlus has since released two newer, more capable, smartphones in the form of the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, that does not mean it has forgotten about its past handsets.

In fact, the firm has a good track record of gifting OnePlus fans using older devices contemporary features.

Recently, OnePlus introduced a screen recorder and its new Zen Mode for the 6T and 6 – two features that debuted on its 2019 products.

The firm is not stopping there though and has released a new beta build for both that brings a number of notable improvements and handy features.

Firstly, the firm is improving the phone’s new screen recorder by giving users a tool that will allow them to choose the frames per second of a particular clip.

Meanwhile, the weather app offered by the duo has also seen a few upgrades; OnePlus has noted the “scrolling experience” between pages should be improved.

Plus, it was noted weather cards for multiple cities can also be removed or rearranged by holding on them.

Finally, the phone app benefits from improved animation effects and optimised quick responses.

Here is a full changelog for the OxygenOS Open Beta 21:


• General bug fixes and stability improvements

• Screen Recorder

• Added FPS (Frames per second) option giving you more control over recording effects


• Improved scrolling experience for switching between pages

• Weather cards for multiple cities can now be rearranged or deleted by tapping and holding on them

• Optimised user experience by allowing you to use this app while app permission to access GPS location is disabled


• Improved animation effects when switching between pages

• Improved experience with searching for contacts

• Optimised Quick Responses for declined calls and supported editing Quick Responses

Those eager to test out the new features and improvements can do so by downloading the latest beta build.

However, it is worth remembering the early software may not be as stable as final software versions.

The changes described above are expected to come to all OnePlus 6 and 6T owners as part of stable update in the near future.
