OnePlus 7-series smartphones come with some of the newest specifications and features in the smartphone industry. One of these features is the Zen Mode and OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro handsets are the first ever to come with it. Right after the launch of its latest flagship smartphone, the company had announced the Zen Mode will be coming to OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T smartphones.
Zen Mode is a feature that helps in curing the smartphone addiction of the users. Now, the OxygenOS Beta 19 for the OnePlus 6 and the OxygenOS Beta 11 for the OnePlus 6T are being rolled out and they get a host of new features with them. Other than the Zen Mode, the new beta updates bring the screen recorder feature to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T smartphones. There are also bug fixes and other overall improvements made to the new beta update of the OxygenOS. The new beta updates for the OnePlus 6-series with all the new features is already rolling out for download.
Talking about the Zen Mode, it is a feature which makes the smartphone useless for 20 minutes on being activated. It is worth mentioning though, that you will be able to do some important tasks, however, you will not receive any notifications during this time. Even switching off the device and switching it on again won’t pull it out of the Zen Mode and it will deactivate automatically once the Zen Mode’s timer runs out. According to OnePlus, the Zen Mode feature allows the user to interact with the real world.
The changelog of the new beta update of the OxygenOS states that the OnePlus 6-series will be getting the Screen Recorder feature with the new update. Other than that, the update will also improve the smooth-scrolling experience on the devices. It also fixes a bug in the Facebook Messenger app which caused it to send notifications when the gaming mode was activated. The OxygenOS beta update for the OnePlus 6-series brings a new India-centric feature called the pin-to-top for notification management. Other than that, improvements have also been made to the calling interface of the OnePlus 6-series.
To install the beta app, you will need to be a part of the OxygenOS beta testing program. But even if you are not a part of it, you can still download and use the Zen Mode on your OnePlus 6-series smartphones without installing the beta OxygenOS updates. You can just go to APK Mirror and download the Zen Mode 1.2.0 apk file. It should be noted that the apk might have some bugs in it and might not function as smooth as the one in the beta version of the OxygenOS.
