OnePlus Staff member David Y responsible for OxygenOS Product Marketing shared more information about the Ambient mode. Taking a closer look, OnePlus users need to connect their smartphone to the charger and then setup the Ambient mode. To begin the setup, users need to go to the “Settings” section in the Google app. Once here, they need to tap on the “Assistant” section and then enter the “Devices (Phone)” sub-section.
