You’ll notice that most of the apps’ content has been positioned at the bottom, making them easier to reach with your thumb. At the same time, the upper part of the screen is quite blank and contains little information. It looks a lot like Samsung’s OneUI, which is not bad. Some new features and shortcuts have been included in OxygenOS 11, so let’s take a look at some of these features.
Let us tell you, the features mentioned below are the rest of the phones of the OnePlus 8 series, in which OnePlus 8 And OnePlus 8 Pro Smartphones are included when they are updated to OxygenOS 11, so these features will also be available in them.

Is.
1. Gaming tools
OnePlus’ Game Space app gets a new icon with OxygenOS 11. Most of its functions remain the same, but a new option has been included in its settings called ‘Gaming Tools’. After enabling this option, you can overlay menus in any game by swiping down from the left and right corners of the screen. From this menu, you can see the system temperature and battery level and there is also a shortcut to WhatsApp, Instagram etc.

You can set here how long you want the always-on display to be on, or you can leave it on forever.

4. New Zen mode
Zen Mode is a type of digital detox process, enabling which you will be able to block all calls and notifications for a while. OnePlus has introduced 5 soothing themes to Zen Mode with the OxygenOS 11 update, more time options starting with 1 minute, and a new Groups feature that allows other OnePlus users to use this Zen Mode together. This new feature is already present in OnePlus 8 without the OxygenOS 11 update.
5. Focus tracking in Camera app
The OnePlus 8T has better camera sets, although it may not be different from the OnePlus 8, but you can take advantage of one particularly useful new feature. In this, a new ‘focus tracking’ toggle has been added in the settings of the camera app which, as the name suggests, allows the camera to lock focus on a moving subject. This is a very useful feature, which we have seen in Samsung and Google smartphones before, we are very happy that now OnePlus has also included it.
6. Accessing notifications with a swipe
If you are an existing OnePlus user, by now you must have accessed the notification shades by swiping down anywhere on the home-screen. The OnePlus 8T comes with a similar gesture shelf, which is a card-style column from OnePlus where you can access widgets, step counters and recently used apps. If you don’t want to use it, you can easily change this gesture.
Long press on a blank area of the homescreen and select Home Settings. Here you will find the option ‘Swipe down to access’ on the second number and then you can change it from the shelf in Notifications and Quick Settings. Save this selection and use it.
7. Quick access to Google Home devices
OxygenOS 11 has redesigned the power menu. Instead of being given buttons for power, reset and screenshots with small pop-ups, you are given oversized buttons with full-screen menus. If you have Google Home installed for any smart devices in your home, you can add shortcuts for those devices to this power menu. It’s going to be very useful here, for example, you don’t need to specifically open the Google Home app just to turn your home lights on or off or on.
