OnePlus 8 series closed beta testing program to start; details

OnePlus staff member Abdul made a dedicated post on the company forum to share details regarding the closed beta program. As part of the post, the company also recapped information regarding its development process. The company actively works on three different streams of OxygenOS builds to bring new features, improvements, and optimizations. The first stream is also called the “Closed Beta”, the second is the “Open Beta”, and the third is the MP (official) build. Testers can also use the closed beta stream to provide important feedback directly to OnePlus OxygenOS developers. This feedback will also be essential in shaping the future of OxygenOS including revisions or refinements.

In addition, OnePlus also uses the closed beta to detect early bugs to launch relatively “more stable Open Beta” builds. Beyond this, the closed beta group will also consist of “elite crew of OnePlus community members”. In addition, OnePlus also clarified that the members of this group must maintain absolute secrecy. This is because the members will get access to unannounced features weeks if not months before the Open Beta launch. Also Read - OnePlus 8T to feature 65W Super Warp Charge technology

Interested testers need to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) to be part of the elite group. The company also revealed that it is currently accepting about 250 people, the highest ever, in this program. Testers may also be required to clean flash new builds which will wipe all the data on the smartphone. So, if you want to keep your data, it is advisable to not apply for the program. Talking about the eligibility list, testers also need to own an unlocked non-carrier version of OnePlus 8 or 8 Pro. In addition, they also need to be an active OnePlus community member and willing to constantly communicate and share feedback on Slack. If you are eligible then head to the forum post and find the link to apply.
