OxygenOS 13 enters open beta



OxygenOS 13 enters open beta

Finally it is the turn of the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro. This is where the open beta phase of OxygenOS 13 begins. About a month ago, OnePlus introduced its own OxygenOS 13 shell, based on Android 13.

The good news: everything finally becomes more uniform and seems more like one piece. The bad news for long-time OnePlus users: it comes at the expense of Android sentiment, as only Oppo’s ColorOS is being refurbished – parent company BBK has been happy enough to take the course for some time. The OnePlus 10 Pro and soon after the OnePlus 10T will ship with a stable Android 13 variant later this year.

Back to the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro open beta. The prerequisite here is the current stable version of OxygenOS 12 (C.63). Currently, the beta version is not yet available for European users, but should also be in the “near future”. As mentioned in the introduction, you have a lot of ColorOS and the new functions that Android 13 has in its belly.

Other than that, not much has changed, the functionality of Oxygen OS remains the same except for minor tweaks like Spotify Always On Display. The new “Aquamorphic Design” is very popular, as a long time user I could do without it, I like what Pixel and Nothing phone (1) do best.

OnePlus describes the procedure for flashing the Open Beta 1 in a dedicated forum post. In this, a handful of manageable problems are also pointed out. For example, the flashlight notification on the lock screen, which does not exist. Also, notifications about incoming calls from iPhones should not be showing at this time.

Of course, OnePlus is hoping for feedback from users who are already jumping on the beta bandwagon. Of course, you should expect all risks and side effects and secure your data accordingly – backup is almost mandatory with a beta like this.
