OxygenOS open beta 5 for OnePlus 7T/7T Pro is now available


OxygenOS Beta 5 for OnePlus 7 and 7T Pro started rolling out with new Dark Mode shortcut in the notification bar, one-handed mode with the latest June Security patch. Among them, dark mode toggle is the most required feature we've been waiting for.

The company also made few tweaks in the Bluetooth and supported hearing aid app connection under the Android 10 Audio Streaming for Hearing Aid (ASHA) standard. It should allow you to pair supported hearing aids to be used as regular Bluetooth headphones with the 7T.
