OnePlus making its major Messages update available to more users

Last month, we reported that Google was working on sorting texts into categories in the Google Messages app, as well as deleting one-time passwords automatically. But it wasn't the first to debut smarter messaging features like this, because OnePlus incorporated similar features into its own messaging app a few weeks prior. Now the OnePlus Messages update is expanding to help more users declutter their inboxes.

Paranoid Android ROM is back from the dead with Android 10 builds (Update: Even more phones with Quartz 4)

Paranoid Android ROM is back from the dead with Android 10 builds (Update: Even more phones with Quartz 4)

LineageOS is the most-used custom Android ROM around, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for others. Paranoid Android was a popular choice back in the KitKat days, and while the ROM returned in full force with Nougat builds in 2017, there hasn't been much news since. Now the project is back (again), touting Android 10 builds for nine phones so far.

Download the latest OnePlus 7 and 7T series Open Betas, with snazzy new ambient display clocks

OnePlus has just posted downloadable images for the latest Oxygen OS Open Beta updates across the entire 7 and 7T series. Both updates (Open Beta 4 for the 7T/7T Pro and Open Beta 14 for the 7/7 Pro) include a handful of the usual bug fixes and improvements, plus May security patches, but there are two noteworthy features: Call recordings now appear in call history (in markets that have that feature), and the ambient display feature has picked up some eminently snazzy new clock styles.

OnePlus 6/6T and 7/7T series pick up May patch and a lot more with their latest OxygenOS updates

OnePlus 6/6T and 7/7T series pick up May patch and a lot more with their latest OxygenOS updates

OnePlus has lately stepped up its software-update game following a brief setback late last year. The company’s been taking a proactive approach to release timely major — as well as incremental — updates even to some of its oldest phones, and the newer 7 and 7T lineup have also been consistently receiving their fair share of attention in the form of performance improvements and general optimizations. Keeping up with that spirit, over the past couple of days OnePlus has pushed a buttload of feature and security updates across its range going back to 2018 — including the 6/6T, along with the 7 and 7T series.

This app lets you (sort of) add a notification LED to the OnePlus 8

This app lets you (sort of) add a notification LED to the OnePlus 8

Shrinking screen bezels have played a big role in the disappearance of the subtly breathing notification LED from our modern phones. An always-on display is a fine middle ground that lets you stay on top of your notifications right from the lock screen, but OnePlus hasn’t been able to perfect it for general availability. While you wait for the feature to see the light of day, the only way to get a notification indicator (well, kind of) on your OnePlus 8 right now is through the aodNotify app, but it brings along with some unwelcome implications.
