OnePlus has officially listed its launcher that it uses on its smartphones on Google’s Play Store in an unreleased beta. We tried to get a slot but by then all of them were full and now, OnePlus has pulled down the listing from the Play Store. The OnePlus launcher takes a lot of influence from Google’s Pixel Launcher available for the Pixel smartphones. Currently, the beta program is full and there are no slots left, we will let you know as soon as OnePlus makes the launcher live again.
The OnePlus Launcher description
OnePlus in the description section of the Play store wrote,
“OnePlus Launcher is officially on the Google Play: Designed by OnePlus team, fast and stable, this launcher allows you to easily set up your home screen by finger-tips”

This new launcher might be a good decision on behalf of OnePlus as it would be a much faster way to update its launcher rather than sending out Over The Air (OTA) updates. OnePlus isn’t the only company that is trying to use Google’s Play Store as a means of delivering its updates. Companies like Samsung, Asus, and others have been moving their apps over to the Play Store. It is also easy for the customer to keep all the apps updated as they are all in one single place.
OnePlus previously used to provide app updates via the OTA method which took a lot of time. This new decision from OnePlus’s side might mean that they will be more frequently updating the OnePlus Launcher to better the user experience. However, due to us not being able to download the OnePlus Launcher we can’t say what OnePlus has changed in it and what they are planning to do.
