If you have OnePlus TV, then there is an update for you. The recently launched OnePlus U1 (review) and the 2019 OnePlus Q1 and Q1 Pro are receiving an OTA update. 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”. The update brings with it OnePlus Connect support for iOS devices, Data Saver Plus to manage the data consumed by the TV, Kids Mode and an update to OnePlus’ own UI, OxygenPlay.
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.
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.
