The OnePlus 8 series has been in the hands of reviewers, but yesterday a few lucky users were able to put in orders for the new smartphones. Now, OnePlus is rolling out the OxygenOS 10.5.4 update for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro that delivers a handful of enhancements.

OxygenOS 10.5.4 for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro isn’t a major update, but rather a patch to get these phones fully ready for consumers. More than likely, this update will show up right after you’ve set up your OnePlus 8 device.

What’s included in this latest version of OxygenOS? The changelog, below, is pretty extensive, but there are a few key changes within. Firstly, there’s support for Google’s Live Caption feature which first debuted on Pixel 4 and recently expanded to older OnePlus smartphones. OnePlus also mentions full support for the Bullets Wireless Z earbuds which can “now be integrated with Dolby Atmos” for better sound quality.

Further, OxygenOS 10.5.4 includes some camera and fingerprint sensor tweaks, the ability to show contact notes on incoming phone calls, and more. There are, of crouse, also many background updates for the system as a whole. This update is still based on the March 2020 security patch, too.
