OnePlus launches IDEAS 2.0 campaign to help improve OxygenOS

Having one of the most active online communities has seen OnePlus become a major player in the Android space over the past few years. The company still wants to ensure that fans have their voices heard after launching the OnePlus IDEAS 2.0 campaign to help improve and enhance future versions of OxygenOS.

You may remember that OnePlus has had numerous similar campaigns that have helped features like the Ambient Display finally come to their devices. Given the intense online disdain we have seen for the upcoming OxygenOS 11.0 based upon Android 11, now might be the ideal time to get your own voice heard as part of this campaign.

The start of the OnePlus IDEAS 2.0 campaign was confirmed over on the official OnePlus Forums, with plenty of encouragement for fans that think they have the next great concept or idea that should come to a future OxygenOS build.

IDEAS bridges the gap between our Community and the OxygenOS team. The concept is quite simple – you submit your idea and if the Community loves it, people from our OS team will go through your concept, analyze it and will share their feedback. And if the top ideas fit our software philosophy, they will be picked for implementation. It’s all up to you: you submit the ideas and you vote to select the best ones.

OnePlus has some pretty simple rules for this second IDEAS round. You’ll have from September 28 to November 6, 2020, to submit an idea with associated sketches, mockups, or video content. The OnePlus community will then use the dedicated IDEAS 2.0 micro-site to vote for their favorites. The top seven ideas or concepts will gain OnePlus Forums XP — useless internet clout — but the overall winner will get their idea enveloped into OxygenOS, plus a VIP ticket to a OnePlus offline launch event with accommodations.

To be considered you will have to answer a few questions about your proposed feature. These include:

  • Who are the users?
  • What is the proposed function?
  • What is the user value?
  • If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?

The winner of the OnePlus IDEAS 1.0 campaign came up with 20 tweaks to OxygenOS to help enhance the experience.

If you are design-centric, you can include diagrams and sketches to fully illustrate why your design works or would work in practice. Winners will be chosen by senior OxygenOS software team members with the very best idea making its way to future full OxygenOS releases. If you’re full of your own feelings on how OxygenOS could be improved, then you can head to the OnePlus IDEAS 2.0 site to submit your ideas.
