OnePlus 5T gets iPhone X-like gesture controls via the latest Oxygen OS Beta

OnePlus 5T gets a new Oxygen OS Beta update

OnePlus has released the Oxygen OS Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus 5T. However, January security patch hasn’t yet arrived on the device. Among the other improvements, the company has removed the Clipboard app from its Oxygen OS. Reports were claiming that this app was sending user data to China. 

With the Oxygen OS Beta 3, a new gesture support has been added to the OnePlus 5T. Users can now navigate on the phone through these gestures. These work identically to the iPhone X and the on-screen navigation buttons will now be replaced.

To see the recent apps, you will have to swipe up from the bottom of the device and then pause for a moment. If you are using an application and need to go back to the home screen, swiping up from the middle of the screen will do the trick. Swiping the screen upwards from right or left will take you back to the recent action.

Is OnePlus still a consumer-driven company?

The company has also added the new pick-up gesture switcher to the OnePlus 5T. These gestures cannot work on the OnePlus 5 since it lacks an 18:9 aspect ratio display. In India, all messages will now be categorized in different slots on their own. This feature is available for both the OP5 and OP5T. Apart from these changes, both the phones have received some other bug fixes and improvements. For those who are unaware, the OnePlus 5 has recently received the Oxygen OS Open Beta 5.

These new features will only arrive on those devices which have the latest beta update installed on them. You must consider the fact that the beta updates are not always stable.
