    Hi, apologies for late reply, I just caught on notifications here.

    You are maybe not related to software development or changelog, but I believe you could have passed that on to the relevant teams.
    Furthermore, I did not exactly say that the behaviour I noted is specific to pre-launch period. In fact, changelogs not matching with submitted builds (or PlayStore updates) is a common behaviour OnePlus has, as proved by several APKs and OxygenOS teardowns ( eg ). I could post on update announcement threads each time that happens, but that represents more time than I'm willing to give.

    On a sidenote, Google guidelines recommend to not include in software builds new versions of apps which may be updated by PlayStore in order to save users' data, see https://source.android.com/devices/tech/ota/reduce_size#avoid-updating-apps for reference.

    The target audience of the changelog is indeed average users.
    But how honest is it to present as new features which are not (as live on stable builds) and to further reiterate on OxygenOS March 2021 FAQ?

    hi community friends, I am here to say goodbye, as my journey as a OnePlus staff has come to an end early this month.

    I was lucky enough, to be able to join OnePlus right after graduation, and grew up together with this company. over the past 7 years, I had been honored to work with so many amazing colleagues who share the same passion. I kept learning from everyone of them. the best part of this journey is that, I can contribute to this community family, together we witnessed and pushed the growth of OnePlus. this brings me so much joy, and it has a huge impact on the path of my career.

    here, I would like to thank our community members, my teammates and colleagues, for everyone's trust and support. a special thank you to pete and oliver, both of you are my mentors of work and life.

    it was a rewarding journey, so this is a difficult decision to make, but I am ready to embark on a new one. as a user of OnePlus, I will continue to keep an eye on this brand like everyone here does, and I am confident that it will continue to bring us exciting products. to my community friends, I hope that we can meet and hug again.

    with gratitude and love,

    Dear David,

    I wish you all the best. No-one will ever forget your impact on the community, on the moderator group, and especially on the re design of the photography section, which made this section so enjoyable.

    Thx for everything, and let's not forget the burgers in London :)

    Like always you know how to do things the right way, and you left us with a great farewell message.

    Wishing you all the best, whatever you will be doing I'm sure you will be great a it. Because when you do things from the heart like you always do, things can't go wrong. ;)

    When you care so much about your work and the people it touches, you can only be prepared to do great things.

    I'm sad to see you leaving, but I'm happy for you since you are doing it the way you wanted.

    I'm glad that we had a chance to meet in person and to see that you were even more amazing in person. :p All the best in your new adventures.
