OnePlus brings Zen Mode and Screen Recorder to OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T open beta

OnePlus is rolling out new open beta updates to the OnePlus 6 and 6T.

The beta update brings ‘Zen Mode’ and ‘Screen Recorder’ to the OnePlus 6 and 6T. Reports of Zen Mode coming to the older phones were initially leaked earlier this month.

OnePlus designed Zen Mode to limit users’ daily smartphone user. Once the user reaches a set usage limit, Zen Mode will prevent them from using their phone for 20 minutes.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus has yet to bring Night Scape 2.0 to its older phones. This new update also fixes the issue that caused Messenger notifications to break through ‘Game Mode.’

The Open Beta is rolling out to users over the next few days.
