A new feature for all Android phones was released by Google a few months ago but that feature was not provided for Oneplus Devices. Finally, the feature has started coming to many OnePlus devices.
The Feature which is called Ambient mode is rolled out to Oneplus Devices which runs on Android 8 and above. Google’s new Ambient Mode shows up on the lockscreen of a charging smartphone and gives you information such as notifications, upcoming events, and shortcuts to important functions, and also turns the display into a photo frame.
The Feature has been rolled out via software update. Once the update is done, google assistant will send a notification whenever we will plug the phone in for charging. We can set up to show several information and notifications on lock screen. We can control smart home devices and other gadgets from lock screen.
To activate the feature:
- Open the Google app on your phone
- Go to More > Settings > Google Assistant > Assistant tab > Phone > Ambient mode.
You can also choose whether you want to enable the Photo frame feature for your Ambient mode and which album you want to use from your Google Photos library.

- Oneplus 3 and 3T
- Oneplus 5 and 5T
