    Hi everyone,

    Weekly after-work hangout may be absent, but never our forums' Weekly Update. :p

    With pandemic situation still ongoing, Zoom meetings are kind of growing on me, providing chances to talk face to face with many community users thousands of kilometres away. While more and more European countries and cities see their lock-downs lifted, we sincerely hope everything can switch back to normal soon.

    Under such a situation, there is a heated discussion on whether WFH could be a long-run alternative to the traditional office. Undeniably, we have been working from home more than usual nowadays. We see mobile phones as a great tool for this new "normal" and want to improve performance in this area – productivity specifically. Tell us more about your experience in this survey.

    WFH life can be boring sometimes, so how about exploring some brand-new OxygenOS updates? :tonguewink: We released the following updates this week: Open Beta 14 for the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7 and Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro, Android 10 Open Beta 3 for OnePlus 5/5T. If you have questions about OxygenOS, you can always turn to @Gary C.'s monthly FAQ.

    This week we also hosted an AMA focused on accessories and gear. @Christine L., @Donna L. and @Leo Lei already started answering your questions, so be sure not to miss it.

    What's your hobby during quarantine? Playing with TikTok? In-house Gym? To me, it's cooking. Cooking can be a fun activity to kill time and run into some surprises by dint of different ingredients. Do you have some customized recipes you find quick and convenient to finish within 30 mins? Should be good advice to me.

    To add more fun to the indoors weekend, @Cheetosdust started a fun game-'Tell two truths and one lie', where you should be able to know more fun facts about your community friends. Check their anecdotes here. It's not just the Writers' Club that is bringing fun into the forums, though. Last weekend, @luigimario invited the community to gather for a GTA V game night, and, mid-week, @MosheG1 challenged everyone for a game of Truth, if you dare. I can't wait to see which fun threads will the next week bring!

    That's pretty much for this week. Enjoy the company of your beloved ones and happy weekend.

    Hello and many thanks for the tags, everyone. You are awesome and I appreciate you all! Much love. :cool:

    And special congratulations to @dsmonteiro. Just saw your photo during the OEF on the opening post and it makes me proud seeing you have finally become Kratos.

    Seriously, look at that photo and then look at this:

    How are these two not the same person? Yes, that's Kratos on the photo I shared, but it's also the face @dsmonteiro makes when he sees one of my jokes. It's probably the face he's making right now. :D

    Have a great weekend everyone and keep the good times rolling. :cool:

    I even paint my left eye when I see your jokes.

    But then, I never laughed at anything you said so I save a lot of money on red paint ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    Thanks for the update @Trista W. ;). Really fun and novel :)

    The truth is that it is necessary to return to normality as soon as possible and while we do it, take good care of yourself.

    Take good care of all of you.
