The OxygenOS Open Beta 3 and Beta 9 updates for the OnePlus 8T and 8 versions, respectively, seem to be rolling out now.

[Open Beta 4] has been released. With April patches and more, OxygenOS Open Beta 3 and 9 are now available for the OnePlus 8/8T series


[04/26/UPDATE]: OnePlus has stated that the OxygenOS Open Beta 3 build for the OnePlus 8T will arrive as Open Beta 4 after initially rolling out. The initial rollout was stopped shortly after release due to a number of problems and glitches, according to reports:

Open Beta 4 for the OnePlus 8T is now available. If you're curious about OBT3, the launch was halted shortly after it was published. You won't have any problems updating from OBT2 or OBT3.

Aside from the numbering scheme, there are no other modifications to the build.

While there has been no official announcement from OnePlus, users on the OnePlus forums have been able to download the update for the OnePlus 8T, 8, and 8 Pro (via XDA). It's a sizable upgrade, but as with the most recent stable update for the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro, the April 2021 security patch is also the most prominent new addition.

It's nice to see a new security fix, but we believe that for all three users, OnePlus can prioritize the secure upgrade route over the Open Beta. Apart from that, there are a host of other updates in OxygenOS Open Beta 3 and 9 that can help owners fix some of the issues they've been complaining about in recent months.

Screenshot pop-ups should be restored, and the Always-on view option should be tweaked as well. The majority of the updates are merely a set of minor issues that arise while using beta applications. The complete changelog for all three platforms is available below:

If you've already signed up for the beta, all OTA files should arrive in the coming days. We expect OnePlus to pursue the tried-and-true staged deployment method, but some commenters on the original threads say that if you're willing to sideload, you can get both OxygenOS Open Beta 3 and 9.zip files from Oxygen Updater.
