OnePlus has started pushing out new beta updates to the OnePlus 7 and 7T series with new ambient display clock styles recently. In addition to that, a new security patch has been added, and various fixes. All those updates are now available to download, read on.
Changelogs for the OnePlus 7 and 7T series are the same. These updates are marked as Open Beta 14 for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. In terms of the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro, the updates are marked as Open Beta 4.
First and foremost, do note that these updates add an Android security patch for May. On top of that, you’ll get more clock style options in the ambient display, on the OnePlus 7 and 7T series.
You can check out the changes by going into ‘Settings’, and then navigation to ‘Customization’. There, you will see the ‘Clock style’ option, in which you can select the style you prefer.
Below this paragraph, you can actually check out those new clock style options. As you can see, they look really nice, and do bring some more variety to the table.
Quite a few people have been requesting more options, and the company now delivered. These new clock styles will roll out to the stable build of OxygenOS really soon, quite probably.
Now, the company also rolled out some software fixes here. The first fix has to do with software voice input. Some software voice wasn’t recognized in OxygenOS, so the company fixed that here.
The problem of disappearing contacts in the address book on some devices has also been fixed. System stability has also been improved, while various smaller fixes have been issued as well.
The company also notes that you can now view call recording in call history. All you need to do is click the three-dot menu in the upper-right corner to access call recording. Do note that this feature is not enabled in all markets, though.
These updates are available to download, if you’re interested. They will arrive to your phone OTA (over-the-air) if you’re already running beta software.
If you’re on a stable software, you’ll need to install these updates. Do note that once you go down that path, you won’t be able to get back without losing all data on your phone.
So, if you’re not ready for that, we suggest you don’t install these beta updates. Do also note that this is beta software, and issues are possible. So if you’re using your OnePlus handset as your primary device, waiting for a stable build may be a better idea.
