At the time of the launch of the OnePlus 3T during mid-November, OnePlus had said that Android Nougat will be coming to the phone (along with the OnePlus 3) before the end of the year; and the beta is finally out. OnePlus on its forum has announced that the Open Beta 8 (built on Android Nougat) is now available for the OnePlus 3.

OnePlus 3 users who are not in the beta program can manually install the OxygenOS Open Beta 8, but for users who are on previous beta builds will start receiving an over-the-air (OTA) update for the new beta.

OnePlus staff member, Tony L shared on the forum that the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat will bring a new notifications design, a new settings menu design, multi-window view, custom DPI support and notification direct reply. The Nougat beta will also bring added status bar icon options, improved shelf customisation and adds quick launch for third party apps.

Considering that it is a ‘Beta’ build, users who decide to install the update on their phone can expect known issues with it including – problems related to Android Pay, performance and stability issues. If a user wants to downgrade back to Android Marshmallow, OnePlus warns that this will format your device and that you should contact customer support for that.

Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones are also currently supporting beta for Nougat.
