OxygenOS 13 Features
Android 13 mainly brings stability improvements as major design changes and features have been announced in the last release. However, it does not mean that there’s nothing new. There are several exciting changes detailed below.
- Much Improved AOD: If you are a fan of Always-on-Display (AOD), you’re going to fall in love with Android 13. The AOD on OxygenOS 13 can show Spotify player and some of your favorite tracks for easy navigation. Not just that, the AOD can also show you the time your food app will take to deliver your order. Also, there’s Canvas AOD, Insight AOD, and Bitmoji AOD to make the AOD screen more interesting.
- Improving Gaming: OxygenOS 13 also brings gaming improvements, thanks to the improved HyperBoost Gaming Engine and GPA 4.0. You can choose from multiple performance modes to prioritize battery saving or performance.
- Sidebar Toolbox: You can increase your productivity by using the sidebar toolbox. Add the apps you open very often to the sidebar for quick access.
- Aquamorphic Design: The latest OxygenOS skin brings a new design language called “Aquamorphic design”. It is inspired by nature and aims to offer a clean interface, redesigned color scheme, and more.
- Audio Improvements: With the OxygenOS 13, OnePlus introduces support for Dolby Atmos and Spatial Audio. Dolby Atmos is not available on all OnePlus phones as it requires specific hardware. With Dolby Atmos and Spatial Audio, you get a surround sound experience, immersive audio, and the ability to choose the audio direction.
