OnePlus 5, 5T update brings new gestures, message categorization

Krales  The Verge

Another huge addition to this update is a new gesture system.

But as I noted at the time, OnePlus promised it would move quickly to bring Oreo to the 5T. Both these updates are based on Android 8.0 Oreo, and, the features that have been introduced with these updates are the same that have been introduced with today's Open Beta updates for OnePlus 5 and 5T.

An India specific feature that's been added puts SMSs into pre-defined categories automatically. It also has pick-up gesture switcher option; you can choose which way to slide up or down to pick up a call. This update also removes Clipboard app from the smartphones. It gets new features including the highly anticipated Face Unlock ( in a beta update earlier), CPU security patch (CVE-2017-13218), general bug fixes and improvements. If you have already installed the update on your phone. In case you have flashed Open Beta build in your device before, you will receive the update via OTA (over-the-air).




Upon then, enable the new navigation gestures by heading over to Settings and enabling "Hide the navigation bar". As per recommendation, one may check the pop-up tutorial in the first place before using.

The user has to swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause to see the recently opened apps. You can swipe up from the middle will directly take you to the home screen. Do make a note that it's not an Open Beta update which means that OnePlus 5T users on stable Android Nougat based OxygenOS ROM will receive the update. I found the device to be almost ideal, but some complained that it shipped originally with an Android 7.1-based OS despite the availability of Android 8.0 Oreo.

The OnePlus 5 got the Beta 5 update and OnePlus 5T got the Beta 3 update which brings some special features to the OnePlus 5T.
