Over the last decade, hearing aids have become so much more than just necessary medical devices that help the hard-of-hearing navigate the world of sound. In addition to these crucial and often life-changing capabilities, hearing aids can also act as the perfect Bluetooth in-ear buds for calls and music nowadays, 100% adjusted to fit your ears and your hearing loss.
While many manufacturers already support Bluetooth streaming on Android, one of the most innovative hearing aid companies is now jumping on board with an initially small selection of Android phones — Whisper.
OxygenOS Beta 5 and Beta 15 have started rolling out for the OnePlus 7T and 7 series, respectively, delivering a handful of new features, the latest security patches, some updated branding, and a pile of smaller fixes. Among the headlining changes are a "notification bar" shortcut for Dark Mode, tweaks to the default dialer app's interface to surface frequently called contacts, and Bluetooth hearing aid support, plus the latest patches. Note: Although the changelog claims that this update brings back the one-handed mode that OnePlus has been testing since the beginning of the year, the company says that is incorrect, and the feature is not included in this build.
