OnePlus 5 and 5T Starts Receiving New OxygenOS Open Beta Update

OnePlus is rolling out this update now, and if you've already got your OnePlus 5 or 5T enrolled in the beta, you should receive an OTA update in the coming days.

OnePlus is one of the manufacturers to roll out timely updates to its smartphones.

Luckily, the problem is easily fixed by using a different SMS app, of which there are plenty to choose from on the Google Play Store (I use Pulse SMS on my OnePlus 5 and love it).

Borderlands 3 reportedly won't appear at E3
Gearbox will apparently have other titles to show off at E3, most likely titles falling under the Gearbox Publishing banner. Borderlands 3 is now under development at Gearbox but oddly, an official announcement is still pending.


With the May security patch, old OnePlus phones are finally getting the Group MMS feature, which can be found in the Message category.

Update (04/20/2018): We've updated this article with details on the OnePlus 6 glass design, white colorway, Avengers Infinity War edition, and more. This security patch also improves OnePlus Switch feature which helps users to switch from their existing smartphone to an OnePlus device. A new Toolbox card is available in the OnePlus Shelf, and there's a new Hidden Space in the app drawer. For the OnePlus 5T, the update brings full-screen gestures. The OnePlus launcher now offers support for editing dynamic icons such as weather, clock and calendar.

The OnePlus Switch app is also getting some updates. For people who don't know what a OnePlus switch is, it is basically a feature found on all OnePlus phones, which basically makes it easy for users to switch from their current phone to a OnePlus device. If you intend to update your compatible OnePlus device now, you can head over to the download page of Oxygen OS open beta and follow the instructions carefully.
