The OnePlus statement goes on to add that they do not recommend flashing this ROM for users who have little to no experience in software development or flashing custom ROMs, or they expect to use the device as a daily driver.

According to XDA Developers, some of the known issues with Android 11 on the OnePlus 8 series include unavailability of face unlock, Google Assistant not working, no video calling and certain UI screens looking less than desirable.
