Recently, OnePlus started to roll out incremental update v.4.1.7 for OxygenOS for OnePlus 3 /3T users.

The major changes brought to bear by this OTA roll out are,

  • Enhanced system fluidity
  • Battery optimizations
  • Android security patch updated to August

Along with the requisite bug fixes:

  • Sound channel error while recording videos
  • Call is routed to speaker accidentally by some 3rd party apps
  • Rendering issue in Indian Kannada language
  • App locker issue caused by some 3rd party apps
  • As per Google, Hangouts will be removed if you have never updated it on Play Store. To keep Hangouts, please update it prior to the upgrade

Probably the removal of Hangouts as per Google’s request if you have not updated the application since you bought the handset is what grabbed most eyeballs.

The OTA will hit your handset if you are on the regular OxygenOS cycle and not if you are enrolled in any of the Beta programmes. If you are so keen you can download the update from OnePlus and flash it yourself too.
