OnePlus halts Cyanogen OS 12 rollout to add new voice feature
Just one week after OnePlus released the One’s Cyanogen OS 12 update, the Chinese startup has halted its rollout. But it’s for a good reason: the “Ok OnePlus” voice activation feature that was promised almost a year ago is finally ready for release.
“OTA rollout was paused due to new “OK OnePlus” feature being added,” confirmed OnePlus founder Carl Pei on Twitter.
Ok OnePlus works just like Ok Google; simply say the magic words to wake your device, then feed it commands by voice. You can tell your handset to make calls, create alarms and reminders, fetch the weather forecast, and lots more.
OnePlus first announced the feature alongside the One almost a year ago, but until now, the company wasn’t able to get it ready for public use.
According to Pei, the update’s rolling “should resume mid week,” but we’re all too familiar with OnePlus deadlines. Don’t be too disappointed if you don’t see it this week, then, but know that it will be making its way to you soon.
