    Hey everyone,

    How is everything going this week? Before we get start reading, I’d like to introduce @Gav_W86 as a new Starting Point Expert, he’s been very helpful to community as all the mods and experts (@dsmonteiro, @ɢноѕтΘпе, @Baymax, @Cheetosdust, @Sun90) have been. With everyone’s support, we’re building a more beautiful community together.

    Desserts first – Android Pie

    Earlier this week, Google announced that Android Pie is coming with some new features such as Adaptive Battery, App Action, new system navigation, Smart Text Selection, etc. and confirmed that OnePlus will be among one of the devices to receive Android P by end of this fall. This will be available for OnePlus 6 first, and OnePlus 5/5T, OnePlus 3/3T afterwards.

    Thanks to @FlixbusLennart for sharing the guide on how to Get Android P's Digital Wellbeing feature on OnePlus 6. That’s really helpful, and we hope to get more guidance/instructions like this from the community.

    Visual Delights

    Shout outs to @teasdalek97 for the amazing and colorful sunsets (seriously, are we under the same sky? :p), and @kevintyb2005 for the wonderful landscape picture. These make me feel like traveling.

    In addition to the mega Shot on OnePlus, our friend @script has created a thread called Weekend Photo Walk. The topic for this week is locomotive. Share your photo walk in the existing thread and stay tuned for the rest of the topics! We can’t wait to relax our eyes with more great pictures from you.

    Let the party begin!

    As we always say, OnePlus is created together with our community. To celebrate our recent achievement, @Joel Jacob . and the team are going around India for a major round of celebrations. If you’re a OnePlus device user and you’ve registered successfully, welcome to take your significant other to the party!

    The registration for this weekend is closed, and we’ll open the application for Aug 17/18 on next Monday. If you missed this chance, please set a reminder for the next one!

    Let’s Talk

    After 20 days, our last Let’s Talk contest had a happy ending with lots of good content. Here are some great readings from our level 2 winners:

    By the way, congrats to @Drewbikscube, @luigimario, @Shivang Joshi who have earned themselves early access to our next flagship through The Lab. Overall, a huge thanks to @Ruby G. who made this happen.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Heeeello jellooooo @Crystal Z.

    Finally Friday, so a great weekend to everyone. Enjoy it over there, over here, over everywhere (English is hard, k? :p).

    Congratulations to everyone mentioned - and a special welcoming to @Gav_W86 :cool:

    PS: Try and do the laundry, really. I mean, it's cool to pretend those piles are an installation on MoMA, but do it and send a picture to your momma. Ask for the cat and update her on your healthy diet. Lie a little if you have to. ;)

    Thx Crystal for this nice weekly. And thx for mentioning the „weekly“ photo walk. In fact it's more a 3 weekends weekly thing, as the theme „locomotive“ is valid for all August weekends.

    I'm hoping to see some interesting machines from all over the world. Locomotives are everywhere.

    Have fun, and a brilliant weekend to all, and to @Dresa91

    this weekly updates lack substance.... not a update on Android P, or even the next beta... since OnePlus is back one beta release and the final release ..even Nokia is ahead. the bigger OnePlus gets, the more they are not like the company that many of us like.... operating a bit like Samsung accept they are a million times smaller, and without the bloatware

    nope and they won't either.... software communications get small blurbs, while a dog, or a promotion gets a whole paragraph or two.
