OnePlus Beta Program is similar to a public beta test that other software makers roll out. As part of this, interested users can install the Open Beta builds on their devices so that they can test out the latest features the company is testing. This also serves as a test field for the company where it can gather feedback, and then tweak the feature according to the feedback of users before rolling it out in the market.

One thing to note here is that Open Beta builds are not as reliable and users should only install them if they know what they are doing and can get back to installing the stable build. It is recommended that users do not install Open Beta software on their main smartphones.

Last but not least, let’s talk about the two new features that are part of the update, Video Enhancer, and OnePlus Roaming. Video Enhancer is a new display color mode that can be found in the Display options in the Settings. The company has tuned the display colors to offer a better experience while watching videos .

OnePlus Roaming is a new service that allows users to use the internet without the need for a local SIM card while traveling to a new country. The company claims that this service acts similar to a virtual SIM card while offering only data services globally in most of the countries and regions .

As part of the feature, the service will list all the data plans available in any given country or region along with the option to purchase the plan for Internet access without a new SIM. Users need to head to the OnePlus Roaming option under the Wi-Fi & Internet options in the Settings app.
