    Is anyone else facing issues as mentioned below after oxygen os update yesterday?

    1. Youtube videos are not getting into landscape mode when full screen button in clicked
    2. Auto-rotate screen feature is not working at all .
    3. While in a game( in my case, Call of Duty Mobile), if I plug in the charger, screen gets into portrait mode while the game supports landscape mode.
    This is highly frustrating .
    4. Happened twice, after I unlock my phone colours become highly saturated and I have to lock unlock the phone again which resolves it.
    5. Unable to download pictures on WhatsApp.

    I mis read your comment.
    you said crack apps? I'm not sure how do they work but definitely try downloading them from playstore. They would work.

    Well just take a backup and perform factory reset if you need your device to run smooth. Just a suggestion :)

    I've experienced some bugs as well:
    • Changing lock screen clock doesn't work
    • There is no setting for font in Personalise section (nor anywhere else)
    • "Horizon lights" setting is shown, but refers to non-existing "new notifications" setting
    • some minor UI issues (context menus on chat bubbles, awkwardly placed button for minimizing keyboard, clock colour not matching system theme, etc)
    Overall feeling is quite bad, but at least it made my "pixel 6 or oneplus 9" dilemma much easier 😜

    I have an issue with one game (Tacticool) so far, it causing it to display missing files!

    *make that 2 games
    *Seems there is a way to fix apps (games) that did not work after update, if you clear the cache for the Google Play store and then reinstall it. It should work 🤞

    I actually had beta version installed . I was unable to backup messages also which used to work quite well before the update . So today I removed myself from beta programme and installed the normal version and it works fine now. looks like all the beta apps will have issues with this release .

    There is a separate thread on this - basically the WhatsApp folder location has changed from WhatsApp to Android/media/com.whatsapp/WhatsApp. This solution worked for me (OnePlus 6) and others. No idea why the update process didn't relocate the entire folder structure automatically.

    Hi, sorry for unrelated post but i'm so worried and frustated by the update

    My OnePlus 6 camera was working fine on Android 10. I updated it via Oxygen Updater app to Android 11.
    Now when I click the camera app, it opens the camera with black screen and closes it after two seconds. Thats it, no response at all. Neither lets me choose front camera or any other camera settings and just closes without any response.
    I have tried multiple times clearing Cache and Storage of camera app, wiping Cache from Boot menu and doing Factory reset 5 times. Even tried rolling back to Android 10, then 9 but the problem still remains.

    I noticed that in Face Unlock settings it lets Front Camera work. It recognized my face and lets it unlock the phone.
    Then I downloaded "HD Camera" app from Play store. In this app, at first it gives "Serious Camera Error" since back camera is loaded by default and switching to front camera is unresponsive. I open Gallery images from within the app and then back to camera, it lets switch to front camera. Then I can make images/videos with Front camera. I then again try to switch to back camera and "Failed to HD camera. Camera may be in use by another application?" appears. Hence, it does not lets back camera to work.

    Front/Back Camera does not works in WhatsApp.

    Has anybody else faced the same issue? Please share your remarks and if you have received any information from OnePlus team, please let me know.

    I'd like to also add that the gallery isn't functioning properly. Everytime I go into my gallery, it needs to reload every album again. And if i select a picture and edit it, it takes longer to process the change. Prior to the update, both took less than a few seconds, if any.

    Aside from the gallery, whatsapp can't download pics and it seems to prevent me from using LTE+ while dropping me to just LTE more often than not.
