With the base of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the highly anticipated OxygenOS 3.1.0 is out in the form of a community or a beta edition providing OnePlus owners the chance to get their hands dirty.
Featuring the August 1 security patches for Android, the OxygenOS 3.1 is a mobile operating system that has been touted as one of the most feature-packed member of the OxygenOS family. Being built up on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the new OS will offer OnePlus owners a more refined user experience thanks to new icon packs; Google search bar UI customization; new wallpaper picker; and Long press boards to rearrange or remove among other things.
OxygenOS 3.1.0 also brings with it OnePlus Music Player, OnePlus Gallery, native Android permissions, and other general system performance improvements. That said, we would like to remind our readers that the OS is still a community or beta variant and hence there could be a few bugs lurking around.
OnePlus has requested the community to test it out and provide feedback so that the final version of OxygenOS 3.1 is devoid of any bugs. As of now, there are three known issues with OxygenOS 3.1 including mobile network stability issue, third party compatibility with some apps and pending improvement in language localizations.
As with any beta release, it has been recommended that users backup their important data on the phone before they go ahead and decide to update their device. Feedback is of paramount importance for such beta releases and OnePlus is asking users to try the new version and provide as much constructive feedback as possible to help iron out those minor and possibly major bugs that may have been left about in the code.
