OxygenOS Open Beta 2 rolling out for OnePlus 7, 7 Pro

Apart from Google, OnePlus is arguably the only other mainstream smartphone manufacturer to roll out superfast software updates. As soon as Google released the stable build of Android 10 on September 3rd, OnePlus hit back with the first beta of the Android 10-based OxygenOS.

And now, only two weeks after the first beta was released, OnePlus has started rolling out the second beta for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. It doesn’t introduce any new features, per se, but it certainly is an update you wouldn’t want to miss.

The second beta improves day-to-day stability, fixing crash issues with fingerprint unlock, default OnePlus Gestures, parallel app usage, and more. Take a look at the complete changelog for a detailed overview.

System

  • General bug fixes and stability improvements
  • Fixed the crash issue with System UI caused by parallel Whatsapp app
  • Fixed the dark screen issue on the lock screen while accessing Games
  • Fixed issues with Status Bar not displaying UI elements
  • Fixed the crash issue with default OnePlus Gestures
  • Re-designed Wi-Fi icon in Quick Settings
  • Fixed the crash issue with the Fingerprint Unlock
  • Optimized the animation effect when Notification bar is being scrolled upwards

The update comes in at only 133MB and has started rolling out incrementally. If you’re on open beta 1, you should get the automatic update notification sooner than later.
