OnePlus has recently released OxygenOS based Android 11 developer preview 1 for their flagship OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. It is a first preview built and that is only for developers, although normal user also can try it. This build may have some bugs because it is for developers and is under development.
There are minor changes regarding gestures, dark mode and security. You are now able to switch between two recent apps easily through swipe navigation gestures left and right.
Now, OnePlus added dark mode toggle in the quick setting panel, like other Apple and Samsung devices. In the history of OxygenOS, if users want to enable dark mode then they need to go-to the setting, theme section and then he/she can enable it. Now users can directly switch the dark mode and normal mode through the quick setting panel using Android 11. This feature is available in many other companies’ devices from past 1 year but now OnePlus users can use this.
In Android 11 users can control permission of installed applications, now users can choose which time the app can use resources like Always, While the app is running, ask always and never. If you restrict location access while the app is running, the app can’t collect location information in the background
Here we notice bugs related to the quick setting panel, some time icons not showing properly and you can fix this through rebooting your device.
Android 11 allows changing the size of video while running on PIP (Picture in Picture Mode). In the past users only could move video on screen but can’t change the size of video.
Users can now directly share images/videos in social media after taking though camera application. If you long press on recently clicked photos/videos in camera applications, you can see social media icons over here.
We don’t recommend you to install this Android 11 developer preview in the OnePlus 8/8 Pro because it is under development and it has lots-of bugs. You will lose your data if you want to downgrade to Android 10. And it will not be easy for you if you are doing this for the first time.
