Folks, great news today. After changing its beta update schedule in June 2020, OnePlus is now opening recruitment for its Closed Beta program. The CBT program has ~2 updates per month, and the builds should be considered as "alpha" - meaning you could access certain experimental features early, but they could prove to be unstable, unpolished, etc.
Up to 200 people will be accepted into it, but they will have to meet a few requirements: being comfortable with taking backups and restoring them (as builds might sometimes require a clean flash therefore lead to data loss), being willing to constantly communicate and provide feedback on Slack, being an active OnePlus Community member but also obviously owning a OnePlus 8T device.
Joining this crew will require you to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with OnePlus, meaning you will not be allowed to share builds and talk about incoming features to anyone!
Note: These closed beta builds can be unstable, therefore we do NOT recommend to apply if you do not have prior experience in beta testing, as well as not knowing how to rollback to stable software by yourself, or when you don't know how to submit logs.
You can apply here (SurveyMonkey).
