INTRO; When OnePlus released the third developer preview of OxygenOS 11 for OnePlus 8 series, the company bundled the redesigned versions of stock OxygenOS apps such as the Gallery, Notes, and Weather. Ahead of OxygenOS 11’s stable launch, OnePlus is now rolling out the redesigned Weather app in beta through Play Store.
The new OnePlus Weather app replaces the minimalistic design of the present OnePlus Weather app with a fancier yet realistic interface. One UI-inspired changes introduced with OxygenOS 11 DP like large fonts and large numbers are prevalent within the app.
Right next to the first temperature indicator, OnePlus has added two small buttons indicating the probability of precipitation and perceived temperature. Moving further down, we’ve translucent horizontally swipeable cards for hourly forecast, daily forecast, followed by other miscellaneous details.
My favorite feature, however, is that the neat representation of sunrise and sunset timings. When you open the app and scroll to the ‘Sunrise & Sunset’ section, there’s a snazzy animation that moves from sunrise to sunset.
If you own an OnePlus phone and have enrolled in OnePlus Weather’s Google Play beta program, you’ll simply update the app to start out using it. Unfortunately, you can’t enroll right now as the beta program is currently full. However, you’ll simply install the app from APKMirror if you’re interested to check the app before OnePlus officially rolls it out along side OxygenOS 11.
Since you’re essentially just sideloading the app, you’ll uninstall and reinstall the older version for now. However, which will not be an option once the corporate rolls out the new Weather app to the stable version.
