    Hey everyone,

    In 2020, we held our very first online Open Ears Forum due to COVID-19. The event surpassed our wildest expectations and achieved great success, allowing us to hear your feedback from all corners of the world, about dozens of different products, gathering hundreds of ideas and key insights. It's already May in 2021, and unfortunately, the pandemic is still raging in many parts of the world. We hope everyone, especially our Indian users, takes care of themselves and their families. Our wishes of having offline OEF have to be postponed until it's 100% secure outside.

    While waiting for that day to come, we're bringing back the online OEF with a brand-new topic – Theme Store. This may not be an unfamiliar topic for you, as you might have tried some custom themes or wallpapers downloaded from other theme stores before. In fact, this is a highly-requested feature.

    Now, you're hearing it here firsthand: The OxygenOS team is exploring a Theme Store feature idea to be brought to the OS in a future update. However, before we do it, we want to discuss it with some of our users, to hear your feedback about this upcoming feature with you, and to get your insights about it.
    • Event time: May 18, 20:00 - 22:00 HKT (17:30 - 19:30 IST, 14:00 - 16:00 CEST, 8:00 - 10:00 EST)
    • Application time: May 6 - May 12
    • Staff members: @Zed Z. @Zoey Z. @Flora L. @Mio L.
    • Users: 15 global users
    If you're interested in themes and wallpaper customizations, join us, and let's co-create a perfect Theme Store for OnePlus.

    As usual, the selected will receive a goodie bag from OnePlus. This time, the goodie bag contains a Hasselblad postcard, an OEF pin, and a T-shirt.

    See you on May 18!

    Hi everyone,

    We want to clarify and correct something about the initial post. At this point, the Theme Store feature is still under investigation by the software team and is still not confirmed. The team will use this OEF to gather insights on what you think about this feature and will put your advices and feedback into consideration.

    The original post will be edited accordingly.

    Thank you.

    Hey friends,

    Sorry for the belated recap on the Theme Store OEF. We planned on pushing an open survey about theme store together with the recap, but we're just informed that the survey was cancelled.

    In that regarding, we'll simply recap here, as you all know this topic is still confidential and we don't have much to be released here. We've collected lots of useful feedback and opinions from the attendees, kudos to @Anuj Khatkar @Sanjay_NS46 @kushal__12 @SRD. @M1606310131244 @TheSkyJIE @J4t1np4r3kh @JelleZon @Dane_Sanders @JetBlackfrost @theAlgoRithm @Adesh.sanmukh @IamIRONSman @supertory

    Some cool ideas may not be released until the second or further editions of Theme Store, and we'll definitely share more information when it's about to be released.

    Thanks all for your support.

    (Note: there're something wrong with the stock on the awards, if you're tired of waiting, please contact @Jade D. to exchange the Hasselblad postcard to a notebook set if you want)

    I am sure a theme store must seem very appealing to a lot of users given that the competition offers it too. All the best to everyone applying, hope that your honest feedback and inputs will help shape the future of oos.

    OMG @cdnfarmer, do you remember the advise I gave to @Pete in London during lunch? He instantly sent it to the development team, could this be the fruit of my tiny 'seed'?
