Android 9.0 Pie open beta now available for the OnePlus 6

03 September 2018

The Android 9.0 Pie open beta for the OnePlus 6 is now live. You can manually download and install the update, although it’s not quite ready yet. Here’s what works.

The update revamps the interface to match Pie, including enabling the new gesture navigation. The original Oreo software had gestures already, but they were different from the Android Pie gestures. Anyway, Do Not Disturb now has adjustable settings and Game Mode has been updated to version 3.0 (with text notification mode).

Now, here’s what doesn’t work. You can’t use Google Pay and the Play Store may complain that the device is uncertified (though people are reporting that it’s working okay). And, of course, some apps may encounter issues.

Head over to the OnePlus forums for a download link and installation instructions. But we’d advise you to wait at least until the second open beta rolls along.
