Screen recorder now available for OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T via latest update

One of the software features that launched with the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 is Screen Recording. Shortly after both devices launched, the APK was made available to older OnePlus devices thanks to APKMirror. If you own a OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T and didn’t sideload the APK then, you shouldn’t worry about doing so as the latest update brings the feature to the phone.

Both the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T are receiving a new update that arrives as OxygenOS version 9.0.7 for the OP6 and version 9.0.15 for the OP6T. The updates bring the screen recorder feature to both devices. It also updates the security patch to that of June 2019, improves the screen rotation, and adds support for VoLTE and VoWiFi for Telia Denmark.

Do note that the screen recorder won’t show in your app drawer but can be accessed from the Quick Settings panel.

The update is rolling out gradually but you can also download and manually install the incremental OTA or flashing the full ROM. Download links are available here.

OnePlus promised that Zen Mode will also be coming to the OnePlus 6/6T but it isn’t bundled with this update. It may probably arrive with July’s security patch. If you can’t wait, you can sideload the APK from APKMirror too.
