    Hey everyone,

    By now, we’re sure that most of you will be familiar with our beta program. As of today, we handle our beta program through three individual streams of builds that run concurrently, Closed Beta, Open Beta, and the MP (official) builds. (If you are not currently familiar with these work streams, or would like to learn more, please check out @Brian Yoon 's thread here.

    Closed Beta programme is an opportunity for us to listen to your feedback and refine or revise our product strategy based on that. It also helps us in finding major bugs at an early stage helping us release a more stable Open beta and MP (official) builds.

    The Closed Beta Group, it is the closest group to OnePlus. This group is made up of an elite crew of one plus community members, This group needs absolute secrecy, as testers often will get builds and features weeks or even months before they are released to the public, considering the secrecy aspect You are required to sign an NDA(Non-Disclosure Agreement) with OnePlus to be part of this programme.

    We will be accepting 100 people into this Closed Beta Program, and users that will be picked, need to meet certain requirements. also being part of this programme will require flashing build very often and at times might require clean flash which will lead to data loss.

    In order to be eligible, you need the following requirements :
    • Use a OnePlus 5/5T
    • Be an active member of OnePlus Community Forums
    • Have prior testing experience of any kind
    • Be willing to constantly communicate and provide feedback to the OnePlus team on Slack
    Meet those requirements? See yourself as a potential Closed Beta Tester? Go ahead, apply here(Closed) right away and let's make OxygenOS better together.

    Thank you, everyone! We had almost one thousand people apply. I will be reaching out to the selected people in the coming days.

    Never Settle.

    This is an excellent opportunity, but I'll have to miss out on this :(

    Edit: I ended up applying after a talk with idkwhoiam322 (Not tagging him because he's busy as of now) :)

    Having done this type of work professionally for 25 years with equipment and software vendors, this is more work than most people realize, even if compensated. I won't be applying, but kudos to those that are able to donate their time. We all benefit from their efforts.
