OEM’s all across the world are employing various techniques to attract customers. OnePlus has also now joined the fleet of those companies that are ensuring faster updates to their apps. OnePlus is going to launch an Individual Application Update program. The manufacturer is planning to shift some of its system applications to Google Play Store. This will make it easy for the company to push frequent updates for these applications.
Earlier, the companies had to push a full system update to update any of the application. But now, these applications will get updates through Google Play Store. The companies will do this without pushing system update. Earlier, the system updates took a lot of time in developing. Thus, the companies were unable to push updates to these applications also. We also know that Google had earlier shifted many of its applications from system core apps to Google Play Store. This showed a clear difference in update frequency for these apps.
Now, all the OEM’s are trying to adopt this trick. OnePlus is among the first few companies. The company has announced that it is going to shift its gallery, launcher, weather, and community apps to Google Play Store. These apps would get updated through Google Play Store. This means that the users will get frequent updates for these apps. Here, it is important to mention that the updates bring new features to the pre-installed apps. It would become easy for the company to push new features to the devices.
OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5 will be the first devices to receive this new feature. This will prove an important step towards the maturation of Oxygen OS as a complete ROM. The Oxygen OS will now bring increased capabilities for the users.
