The Phone app in the new Open Beta builds features better animation while switching between different pages. The company has also improved the search experience in the app with optimizations to Quick Responses. Interested users can also edit these Quick Responses that are used to decline calls. The updated builds have also added an FPS option in the built-in screen recorder for more user control.
Talking about improvements made in the Weather app, OnePlus has improved the scrolling experience while switching between pages. Users can also easily re-arrange or delete the Weather cards from multiple cities by tapping and holding them. OnePlus has also improved the user experience of the app by ensuring access to the app even without the permission to access the GPS.
This update is likely to being rolled out in a staged manner. This means that it will roll out to a very small set of users. Once that is done, OnePlus will keep a lookout for any bugs or complaints related to the latest Open Beta builds. In case there are no issues, OnePlus will roll out the update to rest of the devices. However, in case of a hidden bug, the company will halt the rollout and work on fixing the issue.
