After a pretty long wait, OnePlus has finally released OxygenOS-based Android 9 Pie open beta for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users. The rollout has started within two weeks of the "coming soon" announcement which is a good thing. To be specific about the update, it is OxygenOS Open Beta 20 for the OnePlus 5T and OxygeonOS Open Beta 22 for the OnePlus 5.

With this beta update, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users will be able to enjoy the benefits of Android Pie. It includes pretty much all the major Android Pie features but newly introduced navigation gestures are available only on the OnePlus 5T. Other than this, OnePlus has added a bunch of other new features as well which are listed in the official changelog.

Since it is a beta release, don't install the update unless you are okay with using a ROM that can be buggy. The timeline regarding the stable version rollout is unknown as of now but it will be worth the wait if you are not comfortable running into performance issues.
