If you haven’t been prompted about the update on your TV, then worry not. You can always go into the settings of the TV and manually check for the update. If you still don’t see it then know that the update is probably around the corner as OnePlus says, “OTA will be incremental, which will reach a small percentage of users today, and followed with a broader rollout in a few days”.

OnePlus TV OTA 5 update details

The OnePlus update brings some much-needed features especially if you have kids at home accessing the smart TV and you have a limited FUP with your internet service provider. Let’s look at the new features coming to the OnePlus TV via the OTA 5 update. Below is the information as it is presented on the OnePlus Blog. 

  • OnePlus Connect support for iOS devices.
  • Data Saver Plus: An enhanced version of the Data Saver feature, this will help keep a check on data usage through bandwidth control. This will also enable data usage alerts and will monitor monthly usage.
  • Kids Mode: With this, we introduced parental control on apps, limited watch times, and an eye protection function to provide a more kid-friendly experience on the OnePlus TV.
  • OxygenPlay: You can now long-press any poster in the OxygenPlay homepage to see a pop-up window with information; enhanced UI

Most of the features are self-explanatory but the two key features are Data Saver Plus and Kids Mode. Data saver plus is for those that have a limited FUP or will use their smartphone to tether to the TV. This helps users monitor the amount of data consumed by the TV. users can also set a limit and alerts for when a certain amount of data is consumed. 

With kids mode, parents can limit things like time watched, and also switch on the eye protection mode which essentially eliminates the blue light from the TV. This is similar to the eye care mode found on laptops and desktop monitors. It could give the TV a slightly warm tone when watching content.
