Manu J., Aug 20, 2018 : Update: Thank you, everyone! We had almost seven thousand people apply. I will be reaching out to the selected members in the coming days. Hey everyone, By now, we’re sure that most of you are familiar with our beta program. As of today, we'll be handling 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 program is an opportunity for us to listen to your feedback and refine or revise our product strategy based on that. It also helps us to find major bugs at an early stage and release more stable Open Beta and MP (official) builds. The Closed Beta Group is the closest group to OnePlus staff. This group is made up of an elite crew of OnePlus community members. This group needs absolute secrecy, as testers will often get builds and features weeks or even months before they are released to the public. Given the secrecy aspect, you are required to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with OnePlus to be part of this program. We will be accepting 100 people into this Closed Beta Program, and the chosen users will need to meet certain requirements. Also being part of this program will require flashing builds very often and sometimes a clean flash is needed, which will cause data loss. In order to be eligible, you'll have to meet below requirements : Use a OnePlus 6 Be an active member of OnePlus Community 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 (closed) right away and let's make OxygenOS better together. Never Settle.
