The OxygenOS Open Beta 1 update adds a new navigation gesture format

 

Android 10's full-screen navigation gestures have also made their way to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro with the OxygenOS Open Beta 1 update. Now, users can swipe inwards from either side of the screen to execute the back command, and swipe left or right on the bar at the bottom bar for app switching. The enhanced privacy controls for managing location access permission granted to apps have also been added.

A new Game Space feature - which is basically a game launcher that catalogues all the games in one place and claims to provide a better experience - has also arrived on the OnePlus 7 duo with the Android 10-based update. Support for display information based on a specific time, events, and locations for the Ambient Display has been added too. Lastly, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro users can now block spam messages by using keywords, and this can be done by going to ‘Blocking Sections' in the Settings menu of the Messages app.
