    Hi everyone,

    It has been half a year since we released the OTA 6 for Q/U series. It’s time to bring you something new. I guess many of you have noticed that we just released the OTA 7 for 55Q1/Q1Pro/U series. We suggest you upgrade to get a better user experience.

    With the seventh OTA update, you can take photos or shoot videos by using the built-in Camera app. We’d also like to introduce an interesting method of controlling your TV – Using Connect app on OnePlus Watch as a remote controller. For example, you can use OnePlus Watch to turn on or off the TV and control the volume. More functions will be updated in the future so please stay tuned.

    For OxygenPlay, we're bringing a new Sport Zone for sports lovers to enjoy exciting sports games. In addition, you’ll be able to give ratings to contents you love. Your ratings will be important references so don’t hesitate to grade the videos. There will also be a new channel – Republic Live to OxygenPlay so that you can enjoy Click and Play without jumping to other 3rd party apps.​

    For more details, please check the changelog:
    1. Add a built-in Camera app: Allows you to take photos or shoot videos and share them to your phone.
    2. OnePlus Watch: You can now control OnePlus TV using “TV Connect” app on OnePlus Watch.
    3. OxygenPlay: Add Republic Live Channel, Sports Zone, content rating, etc.
    4. The Bluetooth lag issue: For users who have a lag when connecting to Bluetooth earphones, please try this: Setting-> sound-> Bluetooth delay. Press the direction key to adjust to level 4.
    We are planning to push OTA7 incrementally as per below. It may take a little time for some to get the update, but we are looking at a better user experience:

    April 20th: Accomplish 40% of TV units
    April 24th: Accomplish 30% of TV units
    April 30th: Accomplish 30% of TV units

    All the TV units will receive the update by 30th April. Anyone who doesn't have it after that day, please sent out your SN number to me via private communication. We will help as soon as possible. Hope everything goes well.

    Never Settle.

    Here's the detailed changelog of OTA7

    • A dedicated App for Camera has been added in the TV. You can connect any USB Webcam and capture photos/videos with the help of this App. These photos/videos can be shared to your phone by scanning a QR code from the TV. The Camera App offers a Timer for capture, Couple of Frames for adding fun and Video recording up to 3mins/video. The picture and videos captured by the WebCam can also be quickly accessed from a dedicated Camera Folder in File Manager.
    • Support for Controlling TV from Watch has been added. Open TV Connect App on watch and start controlling the TV. You can control Volume and Turn TV On/Off.
    • A dedicated Sports Section has been added to Oxygen Play. It has sports content majorly from SonyLiv. Has information about Results from completed matches and details about upcoming matches. You can even set Reminders for your fav matches.
    • User can now Rate the Movies/Series on Oxygen Play and all the rated movies will be listed in the MyVideos Section of Oxygen Play. Long Press the Title and along with Title Details/Watchlist option, you now get the Rate feature.
    • Republic TV Live has been added to Oxygen Play. Open Oxygen Play and in Home Section scroll down to find the LiveTV Row.
    • Resolved Android TV Data Saver App not updating in the Playstore.
    • Added option to correct Bluetooth Delay. Settings<Sound<Bluetooth Delay. When there is a delay in the Output from BT Devices, user can set the value to 4 to get the Audio in Sync. From my personal experience, having the value set to -5 reduced the Crackling and Audio Sync issue too. Some users reported that this setting did not solve the issue though.
    • Security Patch updated to February 2021.
    Do let me know if you find any other feature being added or bug being resolved, will add it to the list.

    Hey Guys,
    OnePlus TV Q and U series users now can link their TV to their RedCableClub from the Profile Section of "Oxygen Play" App and claim 1000 RedCoins, provided you have not reached your 4 devices limit in the account.

    Thanks for the update Sophie...

    This feature is really fun to use.

    For users who have crackling noise while using BT devices with Youtube or any App, keep the Bluetooth delay to -5, it helps. If it still happens after changing the BT delay value, restart the App. This technique seems to work for me and hope it helps you all too.

    Thanks for the update @Sophie Z.
    This was nice :cool:
    Ahh yeah! Ratings!! :D
    The casting issue in connect app which happened on clicking Cast when the TV is already in Multicast has also been fixed. It works good now.

    Also, this BT lag temporary fix was found long ago, but there is still distortion on YouTube even after following the steps mentioned by Venky.

    Follow these steps for chromecasting (a bit laggy, but works for playing content)
    Open Chrome on Windows, click on the three dots in the top right corner, select "cast" from the dropdown menu, select "source" as desktop, click on OnePlus TV to start casting

    Bro why are you insisting that I use chromecast through a chromium browser...I specifically want miracast..coz it would also allow me to use Samsung DEX.Would it hurt you if Oneplus adds miracast.Also every tip that your giving I am aware of it.
