OnePlus will be opening their closed beta program for Oxygen OS to new testers this week. It will let select members of the OnePlus community share their feedback with OnePlus staff in the early stages of development, allowing not just for bug hunts, but also shaping the product that’ll ship at the end of the test period. As per their official statement, “The Closed Beta Group is the closest group to OnePlus staff. This group is made up of an elite crew of OnePlus community members.
This group needs absolute secrecy, as testers will often get builds and features weeks or even months before they are released to the public. Given this, you are required to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) with OnePlus to be part of this program.” The beta will only allow 200 testers for now so if you are interested in it, then you need to apply for it almost immediately. The only condition is that the company wants the testers to own an OnePlus 8T and be a current active member of the OnePlus community so that they can easily share the feedback through Slack.
If you want to be the tester for this beta program, then you can apply for the same through the OnePlus Community forms, but make sure that you meet the requirements. No other detail about it has been given by the company yet and it is expected that the new beta testing phase is going to add a new feature to support the OnePlus watch as well.
