Just ahead of the official launch of the OnePlus 6 flagship device in London today, OnePlus has started rolling out a new Oxygen OS open beta update to the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5 and 5T devices. Note that OnePlus has released this update to beta users first and it will take some time before it becomes publicly available for all.
For some odd reason, Android Messages (the default SMS app) on OnePlus devices doesn't support group MMS. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are getting Open Beta 10 and Open Beta 8, respectively. If someone sends a group MMS chat to you, each message from each member shows up as a different thread on your phone. The changelog, which remains same for all four models, reveals that the open beta update brings a new Toolbox Card in the shelf homescreen and a Hidden Space for the app drawer. The remaining features such as dynamic clock icon, automatic folder naming, cloud photo backup, game mode optimization etc. are the same on both devices.
With the May security patch, old OnePlus phones are finally getting the Group MMS feature, which can be found in the Message category.
Notably, those who have already flashed their smartphone for the Open Beta update will get the build as an OTA update.
The update is also bringing improvements to the Launcher side. Switch makes it easy to transfer your data from your current device to your new OnePlus device.
The OnePlus Switch app is also getting some updates.
