While many Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners continue to await the arrival of the December Android security patch, another non-Pixel phone is being updated with it. This time, OnePlus has started rolling out the patch to owners of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
In the update, which carries a version number of 184.108.40.206, doesn’t have much else to offer other than the security patch. However, there are a few other bug fixes that OnePlus has implemented in the update. Here’s the full changelog as published on the OnePlus Forums post:
- Optimized the UI display of Settings interface
- Fixed the issue that Google Assistant and Gpay doesn’t display as expected in the Setup Wizard
- Fixed the low probability issue of WhatsApp crash
- Updated Android security patch to 2021.12
It seems that some OnePlus 8 owners have been unable to reliably use WhatsApp, but it’s because of the previous OxygenOS release, and not the app itself. OnePlus is also providing a fix related to how Google Pay and Google Assistant appear when going through the setup process.
As expected, OnePlus is rolling out this latest update incrementally, meaning that it’s arriving for a small subset of users before being made available for everyone. OnePlus is expected to have this update arrive on all phones within the next few weeks, provided that no other bugs appear to pause the rollout. If you haven’t received the update yet, you can manually check to see if it’s available by heading into the Settings app, going into System, and checking the System Updates section.
