    Trista W. , Mar 20, 2020 :

    What a week! The last seven days were packed with action here in the Community, and I'll bet you'll find some good news to brighten your day.
    • We Get a New Outfit!
    You may have noticed that our platform received a facelift. With the rapid growth of OnePlus, we need to better communicate who we are to newer, unfamiliar audiences. In addition, as we expand, we need to make sure that our brand’s image, and the message we’re delivering, is more consistent across all interactions. On Monday, @Pete anounced an update to the brand visual identity and, on Wednesday,@Rob M. shared a deep dive about what's changing, what's staying the same and why we made this decision.
    Finally, today, @dsmonteiro told what we're doing to the the logo that previously hung in our headquarters’ lobby. Want to know more? Check here.
    • The Germ of an Idea
    The 'IDEAS' platform is where more and more users are putting their efforts to power product development. Until now, we have received over 5,000 amazing ideas and the first round of 5 top-voted ideas is out. Check how @Gary C. and his team looked into it. Thanks again for your passionate participation and let's look forward to the following rounds. Cheers!

    If you want to better understand how your Ideas are handled by our staff, be sure to read @David Y.'s thread.
    • New Open Beta with a New Feature
    For those of you living on the bleeding edge, @Manu J. announced new Open Beta builds for the OnePlus 7 / 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T / 7T Pro. This new update brings a new interesting feature - Instant Translation, that allows you to have seemless translation while chatting with your foreign friends, currently supporting 5 languages (English, French, German, Hindi, and Chinese).
    • Further Ahead
    Following the success of Addition Magazine, we received much feedback about increasing its availability to a broader audience. After continuous discussion and teamwork, today, we are glad to announce a brand new www.additionmag.com website, where we aim to tap into the growing importance of tech in today’s society, focusing on ground-breaking innovations and innovators flying below the radar.
    • Solidarity is the Answer
    On Tuesday, @Pete returned to the forums to share his thoughts on the ongoing public health situation. The answer from the Community couldn't be any clearer:

    Considering most of our community members are spending the majority of time at home, we’re organizing a full week of online mobile gaming activities to present you with some fun. The first two games were PUBG MOBILE and Mario Kart Tour, but keep your eyes peeled and see what other games we'll bring next week.
    • #Quarantinelife
    Here are some pieces shared from community family. ;)

    What's your pastime during quarantine?Any ideas what we can do together to enrich our digital life or any tips you want to share with the community? Tell us in the comments below.

    Hey Trista,

    Again thx for another weekly. Yes, it's so good and helpful to have some constancy. Visiting the forum and interact, having fun, posting Friday foolishness, all those daily routines help to get along with the current situation.

    It also gives us all the chance to slow down a bit and find a new personal pace.
    I personally have good times with that, and also semi good times:)

    Hey, also a chance to say thank you for the little token that was announced to me by David. I will share my story, well, the non NDA part, soon:)

    Mostly I am feeling as a member here, not as a mod, and I like it very much. I'm having good times in the forums, for over 6 years:) Who would have thought that? Longer than the average marriage.....

    All the best,


    Ps. I said that before: OnePlus - the global friends maker.

    That's true. I want to say an extra thank you to the photo experts team, and to Crystal, to both Davids, to Zach, and to you, Trista. And, ofc, to the whole photo community that we have, and all the members who post those extra great photos in the threads. It's much more than entertainment. It's a part of my life.

    Indeed, thanks for the update and I love your profile pic, it has to be my favourite :D Yes, yes, @dsmonteiro's one is also pretty swanky, but I can't go saying that now, can I? It might go straight to his head. And the Portuguese might be known to jump at a good opportunity to gloat :p:rolleyes: Hence why yours has to be my favourite ;) Yes, yes, @Cheetosdust, I'm also a fan of @David Y.'s fantealstic one :cool: bring on the jokes ;-p what is that now, you got an awesome shout-out in the weekly update, and a well deserved too at that? alright, enjoy a free gloat on the house ^^
