OnePlus 6T update: Open Beta 3 improves weather app, adds Google Duo to Phone app, and installs January patch

OnePlus 6T update

Latest news

Update [January 14, 2019]: OnePlus has released a new Open Beta update for the OnePlus 6T. The new update is identified as Open Beta 3, and it brings a few new features to some apps. The update adds deep Google Duo integration with the Phone app while adding the landscape mode support in the Messaging app. Given Google Duo is one of the best apps for video calling on Android, it makes sense to provide full integration in the Phone app, similar to what Google does with Pixel handsets.

Lastly, the Weather app is seeing improvements too, mainly related to better search, better explanation of the icons used, and more unit options. The Open Beta 3 update also installs January 2019 security patch.

Update [January 09, 2019]: T-Mobile recently pushed an update that added support for more domestic roaming partners to the OnePlus 6T, but this same update also happened to disable Google Pay and Google Play Protect. The company says a fix is already available, although you may have to re-verify your payment info to get things back on track with respect to Google Pay.

Alternatively, you can also try this solution to fix the Google Play certification issue on your T-Mo 6T.

Update [January 08, 2019]: OnePlus has released an interim hotfix update for the global OnePlus 6T. The update comes as OxygenOS 9.0.11 and is available for those on 9.0.10 as it fixes the bugs in that update. Those who haven’t updated to 9.0.10 yet will directly receive the 9.1.11 update.

Android Q, Android R, and Android S updates


Given the recent direction that OnePlus took, where the OnePlus 3 and 3T are expected to lead the way in receiving at least three Android OS upgrades, going forward, we expect OnePlus 5, 5T, OnePlus 6 and 6T to receive at least three OS upgrades.

Since OnePlus 6T has Android 9 Pie out of the box, we are looking at updates to Android Q, Android R and Android S, but of course, this is just us speculating. Nonetheless, the 6T will get at least two major OS upgrades, but we hope a third version comes through, just like the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
