OnePlus issued a new stable update for the 8T just before the end of 2020. However, this new version of OxygenOS, the OEM's Android skin, quickly attracted comments from users affected by an issue in which videos they were watching on the phone became capable of pausing by themselves.
However, OnePlus has now announced the roll-out of a hotfix for this problem. It still has the same version ID (OxygenOS 18.104.22.168 for the Indian and North American markets, or 22.214.171.124 for the European region), although it has been posted on January 6, 2021. It is only reaching users in India at present, however.
Apart for a brief allusion to the media player bug, the changelog for the update even remains the same. It includes some optimizations for some aspects of the 8T such as its fingerprint reader, gallery app, NightScape photography and full-screen gestures.
