For OnePlus 3 owners who aren’t afraid to put some beta software on their device, OnePlus has a surprise.

The company has officially confirmed that the Android 7.0 Nougat beta is now available to download. With it, OnePlus 3 owners can have Android 7.0 on their handset, including quick reply notifications, split-screen app support, new menu designs for Settings, and more. Here’s the full changelog from OnePlus:

    Some key updates in this build:

  • Upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat
  • New Notifications Design
  • New Settings Menu Design
  • Multi-Window View
  • Notification Direct Reply
  • Custom DPI Support
  • Added Status Bar Icon Options
  • Added Quick Launch For 3rd Party Applications
  • Improved Shelf Customization

As noted by OnePlus in the announcement post, the new beta software will not be available as an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade, even for folks running the current beta software. You’ll need to download it directly from OnePlus, and then side load it onto your device. You can find that link through the source link below.

If you have a OnePlus 3, do you plan on taking advantage of the new beta software?
