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.
Beside the launcher, the OP3/3T can now tell you the battery level of connected Bluetooth devices, which is especially handy for headsets so you can easily tell when they need a charge. Also, you can now adjust the clock widget's size and email addresses should be hyperlinked inside text messages. Oh, and let's not forget the "dazzling" animations for incoming calls.
Here's the changelog as provided by OnePlus and you can check the source links below that to grab the download for your device.
