OnePlus has made software updates available to both its 2017 handsets. First, owners of the OnePlus 5 can snag OxygenOS Open Beta 1 for Android 8 Oreo. This update brings with it picture in picture, auto-fill, smart text selection, new Quick Settings design, parallel apps, the October security patch, notification dots, and a new app folder design. OnePlus' Open Beta program requires users to download the ROM and sideload it onto their device, which means some technical know-how is needed. One the initial install is complete, devices with beta software installed will receive future beta updates over the air. OnePlus warns there is no backward path for downgrading to the stable, public release channel without first wiping the device. Users will need to enroll in the Open Beta program in order to gain access to the code. In other OnePlus news, the company has updated its new handset, the OnePlus 5T, to OxygenOS 4.7.2. This is a maintenance update that chiefly fixes bugs and smoothes out performance. Notably, the update improves the fingerprint sensor and face unlock features. OxygenOS 4.7.2 is free to download over the air.
