The game space feature allows users to all their favourite games in one place for easier access and better gaming experience. The update is capable of blocking spam by keywords for message.

OnePlus has removed back gesture from the bottom of the screen and added it to the left and right sides of the smartphones. The update comes with a bottom navigation bar to allow switching left or right for recent apps.

The tech website has also reported that Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) feature is currently under optimization and would be pushed in a future update.

The company recently confirmed that OxygenOS would soon have a Dark Mode toggle. Currently, to activate the dark mode, it is required to go to the customisation menu in Settings. Those who frequently switch on and off dark mode find it annoying as OxygenOS does not offer a scheduling option.

OnePlus is currently testing the dark mode toggle feature internally, before it provides to users in an Open Beta release. The switch will be added to Quick Settings.
