OnePlus continues to impress: both of its 2016 flagships, the 3 and 3T, are getting Oreo thanks to the Open Beta program. So if you're running OnePlus' latest and greatest software, then this is an update worth getting excited for. And if you're not living life on the edge yet, then this may encourage you to do so.

I normally like covering the Open Betas that OnePlus puts out for its devices. Ever since the program launched last year, it's shown that the "underdog" Chinese manufacturer is cleaning up its act regarding updates (the OP2 incident notwithstanding). However, this time around, I'm left facepalming. Why, you may ask? Aside from the normal bug fixes and optimizations, OnePlus decided to change the boot animation... and I think that it's pretty terrible. Read More
OnePlus hasn't forgotten about its 2016 flagships just yet. Its Open Beta program is still going strong with new fixes and features for users to test before they're pushed to the official channel. This time around, beta testers can expect several adjustments, some UI changes, and other goodies, which you can find in the changelog below. Read More
The OxygenOS Open Beta updates keep on rolling for the OnePlus 3 and 3T and this latest one brings a very interesting feature: parallel apps. If you're not familiar with the concept, this lets you run the same app in multiple profiles or instances. That might seem superfluous, but think of apps that only let you log in with one account like Facebook or WhatsApp when you might need multiple profiles, or maybe you want to have different settings for each instance of an app to test them out or for different purposes... who knows.
We've already covered App Cloner who does this, but the most famous in the category is Parallel Space. Read More
The Open Beta builds for the OnePlus 3/3T keep on rolling and this time we've got a couple of nice new features and improvements that should please those of you who like to try out new features before they're ready for the general public.
The new builds are 19 for the OnePlus 3 and 10 for the OnePlus 3T and they carry version 2.1 of the all new OnePlus Launcher, which we started seeing back in March. This new version has dynamic icons for the Weather and Calendar, new settings to change the homescreen's grid and icons, and a Pixel Launcher-like history to display the most recently used apps on the top row of the app drawer.

Even though the new phone is on the horizon, OnePlus is still pushing out Open Beta releases for its 2016 flagships. Versions 17 and 8 (for the 3 and 3T, respectively) both bring the same changes, of which there are quite a few. As always, here's the changelog to accompany the updates. Read More
May has just begun and we already have a new Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. It's certainly more exciting than the last one, bringing a changelog that includes more than bug fixes and optimizations (they're still there, but whatever). As usual, I've posted the changelog below. Read More
It's that time again, folks. OnePlus 3 and 3T users who are in the Open Beta program should be checking for an update. Version 5/14 is available to download and install, with the OTA likely to roll out in the next few days. Read More
To round out the first quarter of 2017 (where did the time go?), OnePlus has announced a new build for its Open Beta program for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. Versions 13 and 4, respectively, pack in quite a few new features. But let's dive into the changelog first, shall we? Read More
If you happen to have either of OnePlus' 2016 flagships (or both — no judgement here), there are new Open Beta builds available. Among other things, these updates bring the phones to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is great to see. Read More
