For those unaware, Project Treble was announced with Android 8.0 Oreo past year by Google to tackle the issue of slow software updates. The latest Pixel models, including Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, already included the new development, but OnePlus phones (which also received Android Oreo updates) were now unavailable. If you are running a stable build and would like to try a beta, be sure to follow the instructions on the OnePlus download page carefully.

As requested by nearly everyone who owns the OnePlus 5 and 5T, the Project Treble support is now live for these devices. OnePlus states through their forums that if you want to get on this latest beta build, you should first get on the beta just prior to it or you'll need to clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing. It even confirmed that the OnePlus 5 and 5T would not receive this feature.

Thanks to the Open Beta 13 of the OnePlus 5 and the Open Beta 11 of the OnePlus 5T, the two phones may now have the support Treble and, therefore, updates fast of the Android operating system developed by Google. And although visual changes like that are always entertaining, it's the addition of Project Treble that has us the most excited-if our tense-changing translation of the changelog's slightly broken English is correct.

Accent color customization support has been ready for the OnePlus 5 and 5T and will soon roll out for the new OnePlus 6 and the older OnePlus 3/3T and the OnePlus 5/5T. The compatibility with Project Treble is also what ensured that more phones were part of the Android P beta when it was announced at Google I/O this year in May.

For the new custom accent colour customisation, users on the new Open Beta can head over to Settings Display Customisation and choose the colour you like with the new colour wheel. It has also launched its "new self-service and fix cost page" so that users can check the prices of its spare parts. The Launcher has been improved, with better search tags in the app drawer, a "new installs" category, and more.

Apart from the Project Treble support, some of the other customizations that the new update brings include UI based improvements and tweaks like a new UI for system app and a revamped weather app.
