    All work and no breaks can get to you. Sometimes, you can take a break and introspect, with Zen Mode.
    With work-from-home comes constant checking up from managers, video and voice calls, multiple meetings, and mails. A mental break from work is essential, and videos on YouTube are just a source of increased distraction. In this situation, a break with Zen mode is a good pause for a refreshed mind. Use Zen Mode to be away from your phone for a short period. With a break from your device, take a moment to breathe, to walk around, or look outside your window. Get back to work, refreshed. To enable, browse to Zen Mode in the notifications panel and enable it when its time for a much-needed break.
    Available on all devices from OnePlus 5 onward.

    OMG! I never knew about the instant translations!
    Thank you for such an insightful thread.

    P.S. Waiting for the Work-Life Balance mode to come as a stable release. That's a really useful feature for Employees. As of now I'm happy with the Zen Mode! :)

    Hahaha, that's the wittiest reply. OnePlus could look into internal community hiring based on their skills. Great [e]1f44d[/e]
