OnePlus has released its latest Android 7.0 Nougat beta update for the OnePlus 3. The new OxygenOS build is part of OnePlus’ open beta program, employed by the company to help it deliver the official Nougat OTA before the end of the year.

OnePlus is relying on user feedback to support the development of the new software and includes a survey with each build to assess its success. Here’s the changelog for the most recent release:

  • Added Expanded Screenshots
  • Shelf Design Optimizations
  • General UI Optimizations
  • DPI Optimizations
  • Battery Performance Optimizations
  • Stability and Performance Optimizations
  • General bug fixes

It’s an unspecific list of improvements, save for the “expanded screenshots” feature, which allows OnePlus 3 owners to screenshot a long (scrollable) page rather than a regular screenshot. It nonetheless should provide a more stable experience than OnePlus’ first Nougat beta released at the end of November.

If you want to get involved, you can flash the latest build via the link at the OnePlus forums but note that OnePlus may remove it once it receives enough feedback.
