With the new software update coming in, OnePlus 5T users receive a handful of new features including the new auto pick up gesture, general bug fixes and improvements and more.

It has been confirmed that the latest open beta program will bring in Android 8.1 Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 and 5t devices.

Interestingly, this update also includes the security patch for February 2018 from Google.

As mentioned, the key highlight of the new software update is Android 8.1 Oreo.

In addition to improvements underneath the software, the new beta iteration also brings in some new functionalities. OnePlus earlier this month rolled out Oxygen OS 5.0.4, the stable version of its software, for both the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.

It will take few days for the Android 8.1 update to hit OnePlus 5/5T devices. Users can now pick calls by raising the phone to their ears. It adds new optimisations in gaming mode as well for a more immersive gaming experience, along with power-saving and pausing adaptive brightness when a user is in this mode. Also, the OnePlus 5T users seem to find the aOnePlus Switch app useful as it helps in migrating the application backup data. It will basically allow users to switch between devices seamlessly. If you work with either OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T, you should register for the open beta program since the software bits are available only for registered users. In case you are not an Open Beta user, but interested to get the update on your OnePlus 5T, you need to head to this link: http://downloads.oneplus.net/ to download it.

OxygenOS Oreo 8.1 is the sixth update to the already existing beta program. Note: Connect to a working Wi-Fi before installing the update, and also back up your data. You will be receiving the notification to install the OTA update if you have already flashed a previous Open Beta build.

The Open Beta program is notably not stable software, and hence is not recommended for users who aren't completely sure of what they are doing, as this could cause stability issues and problems with the devices.
