OnePlus was one of the first OEMs to release the beta version of Android 11 shortly after Google released it for its Pixel devices. OnePlus then released the second, third and even fourth closed beta version of Android 11.
In addition, the company has even started the OxygenOS 11 Open Beta program, which, along with HydrogenOS 11, went live for the first time for the Chinese coatings for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
As expected, the update brings a number of new functions along with a major overhaul of the user interface. Some new features include the coveted Always on Display function, a one-handed mode and new live wallpapers.
We also reported that the stable OxygenOS 11 update to Android 11 brings back the ring light feature of the front camera. However, the current OxygenOS 11 update contains some bugs and issues that need to be fixed.
Many users have reported that after installing the update on their devices, the “swipe out of the corner” gesture used to launch the Google Assistant stopped working on OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro. We added some user reports (1, 2, 3, 4) below:

As you can see, the problem seems to affect several people who have installed the OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 update on their devices.
Fortunately, in response to a user complaining about the issue, a OnePlus representative on the company’s community forum stated that the problem has been identified and the development team is working on it.
We have noted this and our development team is currently working on it. We will keep you informed of further updates. We thank you for your support and patience in this regard.
Although the mod didn’t provide an ETA for the update, we expect OnePlus to fix the bug with the next Open Beta update, which should be released soon. That said, we will continue to monitor the situation and release an update as soon as more details become known.
