    They will rather wait for stable native implementation.

    Have you tried enabling freeform desktop in developer settings? It's the native implementation, that is still not enabled officially: https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/03/14/freeform-windows-can-be-enabled-in-android-q-without-hacks/

    that desktop is only for developers. Is quite simple and, most important, if you enable it then every time you connect through HDMI or WiFi display it will be launched.

    The desktops of those OEMs are more advanced, functional and you can choose it on the fly.

    That's probably the reason, why Google didn't enable it officially yet. Perhaps it will come with the next major version.

    a stable maybe implementation which will never come.
    Google made big hype up about this new desktop feature that would come, but they disabled it.
    this freeform *** is complete garbage and not usable, it's not even 10% done. another thing in Google graveyard.

    even if this native implementation comes OnePlus has still to do some major refactoring to make it work with EXTREMELY poor implementation of oxygen os. it's better to create their own.

    The suggestion was posted in that forum time ago. This thread is for talking about that feature implementoin android10.

    Do not take such decisions without first search in the feedback forum.

    Hi,
    Yesterday I have received my new Nexdock Touch.
    Great quality, but the most important, all works with my OP7T Pro McLaren. Except one issue while connecting cable to phonedock/lapdock.
    It looks like there is a pattern how you need to connect it all together.
    But when all is connected, working with full size keyboard with large screen its a pleasure. Word, Excel or notes, even PUG Mobile on full screen show's how powerful mobile devices are.

    Basic OxygenOS Desktop Mode is "workable', but is lacking many handy features. Not all apps works well on Desktop Mode, like ES File Explorer or Nova Launcher.
    All Google apps works well in window mode.

    Huge improvement is Taskbar 6.0 for Android. It adds really useful and customisable taskbar with time, date and recent apps. It helps to remember apps windows size and location.


    With basic android OxygenOS Desktop Mode, I found one issue. After adding shortcut on the desktop with "Add app shortcut", there is no really a way to remove it later.

    More advanced Desktop Mode included with OxygenOS would be amazing experience and very helpful on the go!

    What is: Basic OxygenOS Desktop Mode

    Do you mean in Dev options on the phone? I am still curious about using the OnePlus 8 Pro with the Nexdock touch ( currently testing the Samsung phone)

    How did you manage to get it working? Still can't get keyboard/mouse to work. Only display and charging

    Desktop Mode is actually apart of Android itself and has nothing to do with OnePlus at all.

    It's located in Developers Options and all you are doing is forcing your phone to use a 2nd screen and nothing more.

    I have very similar issue. First thing after connecting my NexDock Touch, phone starts to charge, than there is no way I can use keyboard, touchpad or touch screen. No any key on the keyboard works, so no dimming the screen, no volume, no caps lock. Only there is a desktop on external screen.

    To fix it, I need to unplug the phone and connect it back. After few times, with locking the phone and unlocking, connecting the cable and than disconnecting, Desktop Mode starts to work with all peripheral coming with NexDock Touch.
    Feels like the Desktop Mode at first only works as HDMI over USB-C with charging, than the phone wont charge anymore but all works OK after fiddling with cable - out and in :]

    So it's only charging the phone without interaction (external keyboard/touchpad/touch screen) or no charging with everything working fine.

    The only way I can get it to connect consistently is to connect the OP7T with the screen on and unlocked, then power the nexdock on/off twice quickly back to back then the 3rd power on, the track pad and keyboard work. It doesn't charge the phone, which is annoying. Hopefully this gets resolved in the next update.
