OnePlus has just released the latest version of its in-house Android 9 Pie-based operating system OxygenOS for OnePlus 6 users. The new update brings the version number of OxygenOS to 9.0.2 and this comes just days after OnePlus rolled out its OxygenOS Open Beta 6 for the device users. The highlight of the update is the addition of some of the features that were introduced with the recently launched flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6T. Before we dive in the changelog of the update, one should note that this update is gradually rolling out for OnePlus 6 users and they may not be available for everyone at the time of writing.
It may take some time for the update to reach it to all the OnePlus 6 devices in the market. Taking a closer look at the changelog of the update, the OxygenOS 9.0.2 brings a number of small changes to the operating system. These changes include new navigation gestures, improved user interface in the About section of the device, optimizations made for standby power consumption along with general improvements and bug fixes. Other additions include updating the Android security patch to November 2018 and addition of a shortcut to launch Google Assistant or any third party assistant program by holding the power button for 0.5 seconds.

Last but not least, the update also brings the ‘Nightscape’ mode that the company launched with the OnePlus 6T almost two days back. ‘Nightscape’ is not the only mode as this update also brings Studio Lighting mode to the camera software.
The company shared the announcement of this new update in a dedicated post on its OnePlus forums. The impressive part is that the company introduced similar changes in the Open Beta 6 build for the OnePlus 6 users.
