OnePlus 6 Gets the Latest Version of Android P

"With Android Pie platform update, the OnePlus 6 features the brand-new Android Pie UI, Android P gesture navigation, expanded accent colour customisations, among others", OnePlus added. Also, users will not be able to get the update, as OnePlus is randomly sending the update to the users. Note, though, that it's quite likely the OnePlus 6's update to Android Pie will come to your phone before it comes to that downloads page.

After the various beta builds, OnePlus is finally rolling out stable Android-9.0 based OxygenOS 9.0 update for OnePlus 6. Hence, you need not head over to the OnePlus 6 Settings panel to manually check the update.

As before, this OTA update will have a "staged rollout" meaning it will be rolled out to a limited number of users initially, followed by a broader rollout in the few days.

A spokesperson for OnePlus described the launch as a globally phased rollout, indicating that only users in certain countries will be getting the update today, with more regions expected to follow shortly. According to the changelog posted by OnePlus, the update includes new Do Not Disturb (DND) mode with adjustable settings and a new Gaming Mode 3.0. "First available on September 3 through the Open Beta Programme, Android Pie for the OnePlus 6 has been tested by our community and optimised for them", the company said in a statement late on Friday.

The update weighs around 512 MB in size and users should receive a notification prompting about the update.

The Android 9 Pie release is the proof in the proverbial pudding that Android as an operating system has hit its stride.
