It’s been less than a month since the first Android Oreo Open Beta for the OnePlus 5 landed, and already the company is releasing its second beta. This time around you don’t have a substantially new version of Android to look forward to, but there is a pile of fixes and improvements to dig into.
The full changelog for Open Beta 2, which is almost entirely bugfixes or incremental changes, is just below:

What’s new:

Launcher
Fixed widget issues
Fixed shortcut issues
Camera
UI improvements
File Manager
Added f4v format in video category
Speed improvements while deleting massive files
System
Improvements for Reading Mode
Improvements for vibration
Improvements for Bluetooth audio
Fixed Parallel Apps bugs
Fixed reboot issue when using Picture in Picture
Updated Android security patch to November
General bug fixes and stability improvements

If you’ve already migrated to the Open Betas, you should receive an OTA update to this version soon. On the other hand, if you aren’t a part of the betas (or you can’t wait), all you need to do to join is flash the Open Beta images manually¬†by either sideloading the update or installing it via recovery.
Keep in mind that the Open Betas, as their names would suggest, aren’t stable. And once you’ve made this step, migrating back to the official stable channel and its OTAs will require a clean wipe.
If you do take the plunge and you find any bugs or have feedback to offer, you’re invited to report them here.
