OnePlus’s operating system will be integrated with Oppo's


Half a month after announcing that it would become an Oppo sub-brand, OnePlus has confirmed that its OxygenOS would be merged with its new parent company's ColorOS. The two companies have decided to "best leverage [their] shared resources" by standardizing the software experience across their whole portfolio.

But what precisely does OnePlus mean when it says it's "working on combining the OxygenOS and ColorOS codebases"? Because the modifications are taking place behind the scenes, you may not notice a difference, according to the report.

For all OnePlus devices released globally, OxygenOS will continue to be the operating system. As 9to5Google points out, ColorOS is already present on OnePlus phones sold in China, and it will likely remain so – the operating systems will now shade a codebase.

The new OxygenOS will run on all new smartphones released by the sub-brand, while current handsets that are still receiving updates will receive the new platform via an over-the-air upgrade.

With the move, OnePlus promises stronger and longer Android update support, which now competes with Samsung's. In the hereafter, the OnePlus 8 series and the company's upcoming flagships will receive three major Android updates as well as four years of security patches.

In the meantime, the first Nord, as well as all subsequent Nord and Nord CE devices, will receive two major Android updates as well as three years of security patches. Finally, the N10 and N100 phones in the Nord N series will receive one major Android update and three years of security patches. If you have a flagship that is older than the OnePlus 8, you can expect two major Android releases and three years of security patches.

When the merger was announced, the companies stated that OnePlus will continue to function independently. However, since the move was intended to pool their resources and streamline their operations, a closer link between their operating systems isn't surprising.

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company. Pic Credit: Facebook End-to-end encryption for text messages has been enabled in Facebook Messenger in 2016, when the company launched a "secret conversation" option to the app. That mode now includes the ability to make phone calls.
