    OnePlus is known for its brand value. And they are sticking to Google Dialer & Messages just because it provides Gapps.
    People buy OnePlus because of it's pure OxygenOS smooth experience. Without that OxygenOS is like any other Custom ROM. Why buy a Premium Phone?
    Please return the OnePlus Dialer & OnePlus Messages App back. If you want to keep the Google that's fine. Return the Pure OxygenOS Experience. That is worth the Money not this.
    Please fix this. It will be of a great help. Google Dialer & Message Apps are not good at all.

    Hey Everyone.

    Wish you every one a very good day !!
    My name is Shavi Suri and I am using my first OnePlus device which is OnePlus 8T.

    For the last few years, I always wanted to have an OnePlus device but had no budget. Now finally I have my own OnePlus device.
    Everything is really awesome in this device but OnePlus disappointed me as well as thousands of users for not providing OnePlus Dialer and message app.

    We all know OnePlus own dialer and message app has a ton of amazing features which makes our life easy and simple.
    The biggest feature which most of us missing is CALL RECORDING. Now we are not able to record calls without that computerized voice.
    There are thousands of third party recorder apps but sadly, None of them is perfect.
    I know most of us have tried many third party apps but disappointed.

    I want to share my few attempts to access the OnePlus 8 dialer app in our beautiful and fast OnePlus 8T. I was 80% successful to import it without rooting or unlocking the phone.
    As we all know, the OnePlus 8T has exactly same architecture as OnePlus 8 has. It has same oxygen OS ROM as OnePlus 8 has. So it has all the important libraries included to use OnePlus dialer and messaging app.

    But sadly, there is one issue which is causing the problem. In order to use the OnePlus dialer and messaging app without any problem, we have to root or unlock our phone which is not a flexible solution for all of us. I am attaching screenshots from my OnePlus 8T which shows that the dialer app is running on our phone but it's lacking some permissions. I have given all user permissions but it is asking for some system permissions which is only possible when we will make these apps as inbuilt system apps which is only possible with unlocking the phone.

    So I am requesting to you all come together and let's ask OnePlus to add an OnePlus dialer and messaging app in our OnePlus 8T. We have no problem if OnePlus will keep google dialer and messaging apps but we all need alternative support of OnePlus dialer and messaging app in our 8T.

    I know if we will come as unity, OnePlus will take our feedback seriously. OnePlus is the company that cares for user's feedback and the community is the best place to spread our feedback.

    Guys, If there is 1% hope, we should give a try. We will surely get something in return.

    Thanks, everyone for taking the time to read this thread.

    Neither do i like these apps. Nor this call recording alert which starts when you record someones call.

    Though they are not buggy or something but i dont like so much integration of google apps. If you add google apps to stock then make ui like samsung , then that originality of OnePlus is lost.

    Also ViLTE (Video Over LTE) is using google Duo which is not actually ViLTE. It feels like one feature is missing when it doesn't make ViLTE calls through carrier.

    In nord it was fine we didn't complain because it was midrange! But if you are calling it as a flagship and ultra device . It should have those beautiful OnePlus Message and Phone app. 😍

    Please OnePlus . In next update. Include OnePlus' own Phone and Message apps. And that bitmoji AOD feature ❤️ I will be happiest

    Thanks and regards.

    I really dont see the point to add a poll, if you really want to get to oneplus, you should submit a request using the feedback tool
    Also, take in mind that the op8t, and the nord too, was advertised to be released with the google comm suite. I think, and also hope, that it will not change

    Yes. It's done. Sometimes, people are lazy to submit feedback in separate links or apps. That's why I was asking for poll for quick feedback. Anyway, no problems. Thanks for your help. hoping for best to have a dialer and messaging app soon.

    No, it's not available. Checked. OnePlus message app is called Messaging, which isn't there.

    I am not sure why the complaining...i am coming from Samsung and the reason i chose OnePlus was to OS which is as close as it get to stock android. If you want stock android, then you get the google message and dialer applications which is fair enough.
