Before installing, just know that given that this is a beta update, OnePlus itself claims that there will be hiccups as you use the phone with this build installed. If you ever feel that things are not running as you expected, you can always go to the same webpage where you downloaded the beta from. There you can get a rollback package that you can install and get back to the last version of OxygenOS you were on.
