Quick Reply for IM

The Quick Reply feature is just like we see in the latest Android phones where we can reply without opening the app. This is the same feature in OxygenOS which will enable users to reply to any message without actually opening the app.

Zen Mode

This is the new feature introduced for OnePlus users just like Google’s Digital Wellbeing. It restricts users from using the phone for 20 minutes in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and give up the phone for some time. After enabling this, you will not be able to use your phone except for calling and camera straight for 20 minutes.

Work-life Balance

The Work-Life balance feature will allow you to set a schedule for notifications from work and from life so that they do not mix. With this feature, you can block notifications from work during non-working hours and you can also disable those who distract you at work.

You will be able to select apps under each setting that will show notifications during work and non-work hours and then set Work and Life modes.

Smart SMS app

The smart SMS app will automatically categorize and organize different categories of messages for easy actions. For example, it will identify messages about your train or flight bookings and will organize information to indicate key details in the text.

Moreover, with its help, you will also be able to track your packages and your expenses by managing transaction alerts.

Caller Identification

The Caller ID feature will be integrated into the Dialer app. It will inform you about the callers’ details without the need for third-party apps like Truecaller. Apart from identifying callers, it will also mark spam so that you can avoid picking those calls.

OnePlus Roaming

The OnePlus Roaming feature will allow users to get roaming plans while they’re traveling abroad even without changing their primary number or buying a local SIM. OnePlus will partner with most of the country’s telecom operators to provide you this service.

Cricket Scores
