    Hi everyone!

    With 2018 stubbornly reaching its end (is it just me or did this year simply fly by?), I was the lucky one to get to write the last Weekly Update of the year. And what a week it was! With the holiday season in mind, OnePlus 5 and 5T users started receiving a slice of Pie, Community members sang their carols and me, @David Y., @Ruby G., Crystal Z. and @Trista W. dressed up for the Community Awards. Find all the juicy details below!

    A slice of Pie…
    Christmas day brought a surprise to many OnePlus 5 and 5T users: Oxygen OS 9.0.0 started rolling out with the latest flavor of Android and many of its user-favorite features. You can check the changelog [HERE]. If you’re not one of the ones who have already received this update, don’t despair. As always, the broader rollout starts after a few days. This day was even more special for a user, @Dunnow, who won a brand-new McLaren edition OnePlus 6T for his entry on the Community Unboxing contest.

    …and a few more updates
    It wasn’t just the staple of OxygenOS that got updated. For those on the forefront, OnePlus 5 and 5T also received a new Open Beta update. OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users were also treated to a new Open Beta update. Be sure to check it out!

    The Community gets creative
    When @Crystal Z. opened the Holiday giveaway contest, we were expecting the community’s creativity to shine, but I have to say you completely blew our expectations! We were amazed by the overall quality of your holiday carols. Deciding a winner was far from an easy task, but, in the end, @giackbazz ’s amazing voice and guitar skills won. Do tell us in the comments below which one is your favorite! For me, one of my personal favorites was @artloverjv ’s modern interpretation of Jingle Bells:

    Speaking of creativity, @Trista W. shared the best photos from the Nightscape contest [HERE]. Don’t forget to vote on the one you like the best!

    Community team’s YouTube debut
    This week we dressed fancy (who said that a T-shirt and bowtie combination isn’t fancy?) and hosted the first-ever annual video awards ceremony for the OnePlus community. @palc, @YASHPLUSONE., @dalmia09 and a few others are talking about their favorite bloopers here, but I can assure you that everything was scripted. Even when I cursed in Portuguese for not getting my line right at 17th attempt.

    Your opinion is needed!
    @Tom B. shared a questionnaire about OnePlus 6T’s original case earlier this week, so don’t miss the opportunity to give your feedback. Check Tom’s thread here. @David Y. also wants to know your opinion about your favorite screen unlock animation. His thread is only one click away!

    And with 2019 around the corner, @BobbyV8_ interviewed some of the OnePlus staff about their New Year’s Resolutions. Be sure not to miss his thread. What about you, what are your New Year’s Resolutions? I’ll tell you my most important one: Lose this belly that appeared out of nowhere.

    The news is that our software team is working on it. Patience is one of the greatest virtues in this world. F5 this page if you think anxiety could work.
