    The latest FAQs are as follows:

    Q: Will the widgets be restored in the new Zen Mode?

    1. Launcher: Long press on the Homepage > Widgets > Long press the Zen Mode widget and drag it to the desktop.

    Q: Alarms don't ring on time in OnePlus 8/8 Pro/8T.
    A: We are glad to inform you that this issue has been fixed in the latest stable version of the OnePlus 8/8 Pro/8T; please update the system to the latest stable version.

    Q: I can't enable the Canvas after updating the OnePlus 7 & 7T series to the first OBT version of Android 11.
    Q: The Status Bar display icons partially or entirely overlap after updating the OnePlus 7 & 7T series to the first Android 11 OBT.

    A: These issues have been fixed in the second OBT of the OnePlus 7 & 7T series; please update the system to the latest stable version.

    Q: The animation lags while entering the Shelf on the home screen after updating my OnePlus 7 & 7T series to the second OBT version of Android 11.
    A: This issue has been fixed in version V5.0.2.6 of the OnePlus Launcher, which is currently being pushed gradually; please update the system to the latest version after receiving the push.

    Q: I’m not receiving app notifications until I open the app itself in OnePlus Nord's Android 11 OBT 1.
    A: This issue has been fixed in Nord's second OBT version; please update the system to the latest OBT version.

    Q: After upgrading to OBT 6 on the OnePlus 8/8 Pro, the Settings crash when "Horizon light" has been selected in "Ambient Display."
    A: This issue will be fixed in OBT 7; please update the system to OBT 7 when you receive a notification.

    Q: Why can't I view pictures or files from some OnePlus and third-party applications in the File Manager?
    A: Please don't worry; all the relevant data is still stored on the phone. This issue may occur because the Google team has hidden the Android/data & Android/OBB folder to optimize the privacy policy. To look at relevant files, please try to find them in the respective apps. At the same time, you can also report this issue to the third-party application terminals or the OnePlus community bug feedback area. We will also actively promote the third parties to make relevant adaptations.

    We hope you found the answers above helpful. If not, please feel free to share your doubts in this post or via the Community app. We will answer your questions regularly.

    Never Settle.

    Q: Why the applications on my phone often crashed recently?

    A: This problem is a known issue, and it is mainly caused by the version update of Android System Webview. We are actively pushing the Google team to solve this problem.

    Detailed solution:Settings - Apps & notifications - See all xx apps - App info - taps the three dots on the top right corner - show system - search for Android System Webview - taps the three dots on the top right corner - select “Uninstall updates”. If the problem is still not resolved, please share feedback through the community APP - feedback platform.

    Thanks for the monthly update. As a OnePlus 8T user I request you guys to provide OnePlus phone dialer application as it's different and best when compared to google phone app.
