Earlier this year, OnePlus debuted a new IDEAS program with the intention of collecting new OxygenOS feature suggestions. It has announced the second iteration named IDEAS 2.0. The idea behind the program is unchanged which is to get new feature suggestions for OxygenOS.
The whole process of submitting suggestions is pretty simple. The first step is to share the OxygenOS feature in the official thread that you would like to see in a future version. Once the feature is submitted, it will be up to other forum users whether they want to upvote it. All popular suggestions will be checked by the OxygenOS team itself.
It is worth noting that while submitting the idea, you will need to explain it clearly while also mentioning why your particular feature is needed for OxygenOS. The users also have the freedom to share sketches and concept designs if they feel that will be a better representation of their ideas.
The OxygenOS team will share their analysis and feedback on popular feature suggestions with the contributors. After this stage, top features will be selected for the final implementation where they will be added to OxygenOS. The IDEAS 2.0 campaign will be live until November 6th. The team will be doing a review and selection process on a bi-weekly basis and finally adopted ideas will be declared on November 16th.
