Oxygen OS 11 update

The Oxygen OS 11 update brings one of the most substantial changes to the OnePlus interface ever since its introduction. The UI now focuses on ease of use and reachability, along with a more uniform layout across the display. Always On Display is a new feature on Oxygen OS and it brings several AOD styles to choose from. OnePlus has also added a host of new clock styles and widgets as well.

The Game Space feature has also been updated for Oxygen OS 11. There is a newly added gaming tools box for convenient switches of Fnatic mode. You can now choose three ways of notifications: text-only, heads up, and block. There’s now a quick reply feature in a small window for Instagram and WhatsApp. Users have to enable it by swiping down from upper right/left corners of the screen in gaming mode. There’s also a mis-touch prevention feature. To enable it, swipe down from the top of the screen, click and the notification bar will pop out.

Additionally, the Gallery app also gets a few new updates. There’s now a Story function similar to Instagram and Facebook stories. It automatically starts forming weekly videos with photos and videos in the phone’s storage. The loading speed is also optimized and the image preview is now faster.
