OnePlus has begun rolling out Android P OxygenOS Open Beta update for its flagship model, OnePlus 6. The information comes via OnePlus official Twitter handle where the company cited that Android Pie Beta update is available for the OnePlus 6.

“Who wants Pie? Download the latest OxygenOS Open Beta with Android P for the #OnePlus6 today,” the tweet reads.

OnePlus added its official forum link as well whereby it cited about the Android Pie Open Beta build changelog. The OxygenOS Open Beta update brings a new UI for Android P along with gesture navigation and system improvements. The Android Pie Open Beta build update bundles integrated OnePlus customisation features as well. With the latest update, OnePlus 6 users will get accent colour customisation support and a new “Do Not Disturb” mode with adjustable settings.

The Chinese OEM further cites that some of the apps, for instance, Google Pay may not function properly on this OxygenOS beta software and Google Play Store may show as “Device is not Certified by Google.”
