OnePlus 7 Pro notification shade

Although OnePlus hardware usually looks great — especially the latest Nebula Blue variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro — most fans would argue that the software known as Oxygen OS is what keeps them coming back to the company’s smartphones.

That being said, Oxygen OS certainly isn’t perfect. OnePlus recently opened up its forums to allow users to suggest various new features they think the company should integrate into its Android skin, and now OnePlus has revealed which features are on the way.

Editor's Pick

You might be disappointed that some suggestions didn’t make this list. Hopefully, OnePlus will continue to be “all ears” when it comes to Oxygen OS features and there will be more commitments like these in the future.

Here is what is definitely on the way:

  • Video recording using the ultra-wide camera
  • A step counter merged into OnePlus Shelf
  • The ability to see more apps when accessing the recent apps menu
  • A fix to the problem of background apps pausing while using Quick Reply
  • The option for a sound effect when the device begins charging
  • The ability to customize the duration of Zen Mode (right now it is locked to 20 minutes)
  • The ability to block messages by a certain keyword
  • A function to block all phone calls in phone settings
  • The integration of Digital Wellbeing

Those are the things OnePlus committed to. Additionally, it said it is “looking into” the following features:

  • A way to customize the Horizon Light notification feature
  • An “alternative” to a fully-fledged always-on display (which OnePlus has never integrated due to battery drain)
  • Support for folders in the app drawer
  • Support for adaptive icons

If there is something you wish Oxygen OS had that isn’t on either of these lists, you can use the feedback tool within the Community app on your OnePlus device. If you don’t have that app pre-installed, you can always grab it by hitting the button below.
