    Hello friends,

    The OnePlus Community has been together with its users for more than 7 years, creating countless engaging co-creation stories and memories. During this time, we received constructive feedback and valuable suggestions from you regarding your Community product experience. Over the past few months, we’ve been in close discussion with our Community, iterating and improving the overall product experience. Today, we’re unveiling the result of that two-way process – Orbit.

    The name ‘Orbit’ was suggested by our long-standing community expert @cdnfarmer. The term “orbit” is often used to describe the path that a satellite travels around the earth, to continuously provide people with better services. This aligns precisely with our community product philosophy and user-driven concept. With Orbit, we aspire to gather OnePlus users from all over the world to co-create a better, ever-more inclusive Community – delivering a fresh product experience and invigorated community culture.

    Key Highlights of Orbit

    • Community-driven product development
    Product managers, developers and UX designers will be joining the Orbit project to engage in close consultation with you. Your crucial ideas and input will then be reviewed and implemented by our Community team. Every month, we will share the results of our co-creation through an updated iteration plan. You’ll be able to help us build a better Community experience until June 2022. Your voice matters: shape the result with your efforts!

    Here are a few of the most exciting features we’ll be introducing through Orbit! Let us know what you think of these features in the comments below and help us co-create Orbit.
    • Optimized core functions, for an optimal user experience
    Using your constructive suggestions as the focal point, we transformed the overall user experience. Important improvements include the content creation experience, greater user interaction, instant notification system and a refreshed visual direction.
    • Streamlined content creation experience
    We implemented a brand-new content format “Moment” to highlight your personal photography content. Through this tool, you can post your thoughts freely on Orbit using both text and images. In addition, the dedicated “Article” format offers rich editing tools to help make your posts and comments even more personal and distinct.
    • New social mode for the perfect atmosphere
    “Circles” allows you to more easily access your favorite content categories, enabling you to meet other users who share the same interests. You can also create and manage your own circle, allowing you to more easily reach and communicate with people who share your passions.

    Can’t wait to get your hands on the new Orbit App? The Orbit Open Beta will be available on Oct 20 17:00 HKT. In line with Community tradition, we will prioritize bringing in our most established community users. I’m delighted to announce that we’re recruiting 100 seed users, who will become the first people personally invited by @Pete to experience the Orbit. If you are passionate about the OnePlus Community and eager to co-create Orbit with us, don’t hesitate to apply. Click here to learn more. We look forward to seeing you soon.

    Hello everyone,

    the day has finally arrived, so congratulations to everyone who was selected to try the new Orbit platform.

    With the new platform, comes your opportunity to share your invitation code and get the chance to win prizes.

    You can read all about it here, on the official thread created specifically to share those invitation codes.

    Now that we have a lovely place to do it, please do share your code there and there alone. You can also write it down in your signature, but sharing the code outside that thread is against the Terms of Service and Rules of the forums.

    If you have any questions regarding this, please let me know.

    Congratulations once again and see you in Orbit.

    About time something is done with the community app. It has been in shambles since the day I joined 2 years ago, and still is.

    Thanks @Zach X. for this. As I was one of the OEF community app attendees I was wondering when the community would hear about the release. It's great to give 100 community members the very first taste of this fresh looking community app!
    Cool name for the app @cdnfarmer! 💫
