    Hey everyone,

    Are you excited about the new OxygenOS updates specially made for India? We're back with another teaser for you to look forward to.

    We can all agree the cluttering of inbox due to the influx of messages every day causes a nuisance. Whether it's OTPs, bank alerts, delivery alerts or promotional messages, looking for the relevant messages takes time and effort. We're here to solve this problem and make your messaging experience smoother and faster.

    Introducing Smart SMS, an exclusive feature that presents all the important information in a concise and clear format. Now all your messages will be automatically categorized, making information easier to read and search.


    To sort your messaging, three categories of messages, i.e. OTP, Transactions, and Promotions have been enabled. Bank alerts will automatically appear under Transactions; deals and offers under Promotional, all automatically. When it comes to OTPs, they will be received with a copy and paste option, which can be performed with just a click.

    With Smart SMS, all messages will come in a card format, making it easy for you to spot all the necessary information. Still, the original messages can still be viewed by clicking on "View details". All the new features of the SMS app will be enabled by default, saving you the hassle of searching for any information.

    Look out for more excitement right here.

    Never Settle.

    Yeah! Really appreciate the gesture from you guys. It would be great if you gave some info on why most of the people in India are not receiving Android 10 update and when are you planning to rollout to a wider people. @Manu J.

    We should first learn to stop sharing our personal phone numbers, email ids randomly on internet. But yeah there is no way to completely stop this stupid spam.

    Congratulations! OnePlus Team on this feature.

    there are too many bugs in the android 10 build. I have been using android 10 since last 12 days and have encountered way too many bugs. these bugs are not game changers, but yeah, they will influence your daily usage. Automatic brightness, navigation gesture, bottom bar, video forward in Chrome, ram management, battery drainage, and many more issues that I encountered. Still it was fun using the new update. The phone is laggy and slow, but feels fresh.

    Because in India promotion and spam messages are off the charts and the amount of OTPs we get in a day are limitless, so yeah that's why India based for now.

    Seems plausible...
    Just checked my message box after a long time and I can clearly see messages from every single e-commerce website I've made purchase or even registered in last 100 years. Offers from florist, supermarket, insurance providers, debit card, credit card and what not... and a legion of OTPs... :eek:

    Though this smart SMS app seems helpful for the masses, I am worried about the other bloats in the name of cricket scores etc, which are part of the India specific features.
