OnePlus is one of the leading Android OEMs when it comes to providing software updates for its devices. The company has already released the Android 11 Beta build for interested users to try out.

The company usually has three software stages for its users. First off, we have the regular stable builds which most users are familiar with. Next, the company has an Open Beta program for all of its devices. In the Open Beta program, anyone with the supported OnePlus smartphone can opt to try out experimental features. These builds are close to finished. Lastly, there’s the exclusive Closed Beta program. In the Closed Beta programs, only a few hundred users are accepted to test out early builds of OxygenOS.
Moreover, the company also takes feedback from the testers to and all the selected Closed Beta testers must not reveal any experimental features to the public. For the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the company is going to select 250 people to kick start the Closed Bet program.
