OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T get Android-11 based OxygenOS 11 update

OnePlus starts rolling out stable Android 11 update to OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T users. The new software update comes with OxygenOS 11 skin at the top. Last month, the duo received the first Android 11 beta update and now a stable build has arrived.

It also adds a quick reply feature that lets you chat on Instagram, WhatsApp, and Telegram in a small window. Game Space also gets a new ‘mis-touch prevention’ feature.
