    Hey everyone,

    We are very excited to announce that we are ready to roll out the very first Open Beta for the OnePlus 7T Series.
    • System
      • Optimized RAM management
      • Enhanced single and double-tap performance of Ambient display and lock screen
      • Improved content now live on settings page
      • Updated Android Security patch to 2020.02
    • Live Caption
      • Added live caption feature, this will detect speech in media and automatically generates captions (to enable: Settings-System-AccessibIlity-Live Caption)
    • Phone
      • Enhanced the contact details screen
    • Gallery
      • Fixed the audio and video issues with preloading videos

    Exciting new feature available Live Caption on Android is part of this update. Live Caption detects speech in media and automatically generates captions.

    It’s effortless and handy for accessibility. What’s more, if you want to watch the video in a noisy place or the elevator, etc., then Live Caption could be the feature that can help you keep track of the dialogues, rather than increasing your phone’s volume to avoid embarrassment in crowded places.

    You can enable it in Settings - System - Accessibility - Live Caption, or directly from the Volume toggle.​


    Please note: This instruction is only for OnePlus 7T/7TPro, and please make sure the battery level is above 30% and minimum 3GB of available storage space.

    MP version = Stable official version
    OBT version = Open Beta Version

    Starting from OnePlus 7T Series, there're different builds for Open Beta as well.

    Open Beta 1 Download Resource:
    - OnePlus 7T (IN)
    - OnePlus 7T (EU)
    - OnePlus 7T (Global)

    - OnePlus 7T Pro (IN)
    - OnePlus 7T Pro (EU)
    - OnePlus 7T Pro (Global)

    For those who flashed the incorrect ROM, you might not be able to use some localized feature/function. To go to the correct build, you need to back up all your data, revert to MP build then download the open beta build for your region.

    MP Download Resource:
    Make sure to back up the data before reverting back to MP!!!

    For those who still think an open beta update is the same thing as an official OTA update :

    Woo woo, awesome news! :cool:

    To everyone that's going to enroll their devices on the Open Beta program, don't forget to report the bugs you find using the proper method. ;)

    If you find a bug and you don't report it, you are not actually helping the team fine tuning OxygenOS.

    Have fun! :D

    That's nice to see. Unfortunately (but this is normal when companies grow), OnePlus decided to probably create regional-specific builds like with the stable branche. So, 3 builds:

    • International/global
    • EU
    • India
    The weird thing is: on the Indian website, they do have another build (.Y), while on the global website they have the global build (.W). In this thread, they only make mention of the global builds (.W. You can check the URL Manu posted yourself).

    @Manu J. Any clarification on this?

    EDIT: @Manu J. Glad to see you apparently took our criticism seriously. However, it's not 100% corrected. For example, you swapped the URL of the 7T EU with the 7T global URL. That means in practice that people who want to download EU ROM, will download the global one instead, and vice-versa.

    upload_2020-3-13_12-35-34.png
    upload_2020-3-13_12-35-51.png (this is the global URL instead of the EU one)
    upload_2020-3-13_12-41-13.png
    upload_2020-3-13_12-41-24.png (this is the EU URL instead of the global).

    Long story short: swap the URLs of global and EU with each other and everyone is good to go again.

    Great news, beta finally started for 7T. Was waiting for a long time. Testing new features before others is the best feeling. Hope it is not too much buggy. Good work OnePlus team.

    Nice.
    By the way Community app automatically selects your phone and OS version when making a bug report for it, a global product manager should know that.

    What do you mean by that? Open beta is beta and you will stay on beta if you change to beta. It does not convert back to a stable version. You have to change back to stable update channel manually and probably get the device wiped when going back.
    My suggestion is to stay on stable if you don't want to risk needing to wipe the phone or don't like to report bugs.
    Beta channel is not an regular update nor will it become stable after some time.
