OnePlus 3 and 3T get Android Pie with a Community Beta update

18 April 2019

OnePlus confirmed Android Pie for its 2016 smartphones OnePlus 3 and 3T last July. Fast forward to March this year, the company started recruiting testers for beta version of Pie. And then earlier this month, OnePlus released Android Pie beta for its Chinese users. Well now, this update has been extended to users outside China.

OnePlus has announced a Community Beta update which brings Android Pie to OnePlus 3 and 3T with new UI, latest security patch, Gaming Mode 3.0, and more. You can check out the full change-log below.

  • Updated system to Android 9 Pie
  • Brand new UI for Android Pie
  • Updated Android security patch to 2019.4
  • New Do Not Disturb mode with adjustable settings
  • Added text notification mode in Gaming Mode
  • Added notification for 3rd party calls in Gaming Mode
  • Deep integration with Google Duo
  • Integrated Google Lens mode in Camera

Unlike the Open Beta builds, this Community Beta build won't be rolled out over-the-air so you will have to download the files by heading over to the source link below and flash it manually.

Besides, you might want to stay away from trying this update right now if you use your OnePlus 3/3T as a daily driver, because these builds may contain bugs that could hamper the user experience.

There's no word on when the stable build will hit these phones, but once it's released by OnePlus, users on Community Build will receive an OTA.
