You should note that the company has discontinued OnePlus 5 and hence the update will be available only for users who have access to the device. OnePlus had released Android 8.1 Oreo in form of an OxygenOS Open Beta update a while back for both devices, and after filtering some bugs and what not, the update is now stable, and ready for pretty much everyone it seems.

To get the gestures working on your OnePlus 5/5T simply update to the latest OTA update. We already covered the Razer Phone's 8.1 rollout yesterday and now, the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are joining the list, bringing along OS improvements, security improvements and a new "gaming mode".

You can even directly download the update for each device with this link of OTAs for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Not all OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T users will see the new Android Oreo 8.1 update on their phones.

OnePlus has stepped up its software update game to the next level by releasing the latest updates for its flagship devices. There are also optimizations for the Gaming mode, including power efficiency settings and network prioritization. The update pauses adaptive brightness, which means the phone will be uniformly bright throughout a gaming session. You will experience an improved network boost with special network priority for gaming app in the background. OnePlus has also made changes to the Launcher, which now has category tags in the search section of the drawer app.

It's been a little over a month since OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T started testing Android 8.1 Oreo as part of the company's Open Beta program. The OnePlus 5T will also automatically name folders based on category going forward, similarly to iOS and other Android phones on the market.
