OnePlus 8T has been out for a few months now. However this device has not had a smooth sailing in the time it’s been in the market owing to countless bugs.

This could partly be attributed to the fact that it was the first device to come with OnePlus’ newly redesigned OxygenOS 11 custom Android skin based on Android 11.

Some of the issues faced by users of the 8T who updated to this new OxygenOS 11 build include a laggy and stuttering media playback issue, a broken ‘Ok Google/Hey Google’ hotword detection among others.

These issues have been extensively brought to the attention of OnePlus by affected users and new reports now suggest that there could be light at the end of the tunnel after all.
