    Welcome to another update on the OxygenOS 101 series! This time again we'll take a quick overview of unique features and tips to get the best out of your OxygenOS experience. To make this section more engaging, I encourage you all to share tips and tricks that you have discovered!

    In case you missed out on the first OxygenOS 101 post, be sure to check it out here.

    1. Reading Mode

    If you're an avid reader, this feature is specially made for you. We love the greyscale reading mode on the Kindle and wanted to implement something similar. With the Reading Mode enabled on the OnePlus 6, extended reading becomes really easy and enjoyable. There are two ways you can access this feature, by adding apps that you wish to experience in Reading mode, the screen calibrates automatically when you open the app or by manually choosing Reading Mode from the display settings.

    2. Hidden Apps

    This is a nifty trick for getting more privacy options on your phone. With the latest OxygenOS you can access a hidden space in your app drawer. Slide left to open up an additional app space where all your private apps can be tucked away from prying eyes. The hidden space acts as a vault where all your apps are secured from access and are unindexed from showing up in app search.

    3. Special Access

    This is somewhat of a pro-feature. To have greater control over how your apps behave, the special access setting allows you to individually control aspects of the installed app's behavior. You can choose customized behavior settings for each app installed on your phone. Restricting usage access, allowing picture-in-picture or granting permissions to apps to modify system settings. Special Access is your one-stop pro setting for all apps.

    That's all for this edition of OxygenOS 101! Check back next week for a fresh set of OOS tips and tricks.
