As promised, OnePlus has rolled out latest open beta for OnePlus 6 which brings features that OnePlus introduced on the OnePlus 6T. This includes new navigation gestures, improved UI for About phone, November security patch, and improvements for taking screenshot experience.

Apart from these changes, the company is also bringing new Google quick search box design, the much-anticipated nightscape, and Studio Lighting. OnePlus is also improving and smoothening the gallery for better zooming gesture and magnification.

Since it is a beta software, it might not be as stable as the official OTA update. The company has also integrated the Feedback tool into Community App and you can report bugs and share Logs directly to our bug hunters with the community App.

If you are already on an Open Beta, you will receive this new build as an OTA. If you are not running open beta software and would like to, you need to flash it manually which will wipe your data. Once you are in beta, you will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
