Latest OnePlus update brings “Hey OnePlus” to the phone


Update

The OnePlus One finally receives a feature it was promised way back at launch. “Hey OnePlus” is now activated in the latest CM12 update.

There aren’t many phones on the market which enjoy a whole new ROM, as well as updates  for it’s original system, but this is exactly the case for the OPO. Shortly after releasing their own OxygenOS ROM, Cyanogen have released CM12, and now there is an update for that too.

The latest version of CM12, YNG1TAS17L, fixes a few issues with the previous build, but the major addition is the inclusion of voice assistant features activated by the phrase “Hey OnePlus”. The phrase replaces “OK Google”, and was promised as a feature of the 2014 Flagship killer during the early days of OnePlus.

The update asks users to train your OnePlus in to learning how you speak and sound for better recognition. The update is rolling out on OPO phones right now, users should keep an eye on update notifications over the coming days.

    After the first Lollipop update and this one follows. The One Plus voice training is difficult so it does not interest me. The Antutu score with the latest update get close to 50K ( 49768) in my phone – the higest so far in Antutu apps (tops Meixu X4 and Note 4)

      The MX4 has scored over 50,000 in Antutu, multiple reviewers have posted scores around 51,300.

        Thanks bb25. Its just that my Antutu apps showed it be on top of MX4 and Note 4.I have read that One Plus did score over 50K on Oxyen OS. After the update to the latest Lollipop (3 updates so far), it went from 47K+ to 49K+ in Antutu. Still, One Plus is an amazine phone (it can read my 3TB USB hard drive via OTG!) for the price of $350 a year back.
        Still I believe MX4 is a better phone.

          They are all good phones and Antutu really isn’t the best way to judge any phone. Manufacturers have figured out ways to artificially raise their Antutu scores.

            What is a balcobomber? Or is it just a derived name from some circumstance? It intrigues me.

              It dates back to American baseball. BALCO was a laboratory that produced steroids for several players. The biggest player of them all was Barry Bonds, who broke multiple home run records. His jersey number was 25. It started out as fantasy baseball team name and kind of just evolved into my online persona. The guy in the picture is an American Football (NFL) coach, Bill Belichick.

    You’re giving them too much credit. The Oxygen ROM needs an installer that’s in the Google Play store, or at least a downloadable package. Manual installation and risk of damaging the phone are too high without that. No installer means it’s not really an option for most users.

    As far as the CM12S update, WHERE THE HELL IS IT??? I keep seeing articles and excuses saying that it’s FINALLY released, ONLY 6 MONTHS after promised, and it STILL isn’t showing up for an OTA update to my phone!

    It’s great that they’re working on stuff, but getting software into customers hands is NOT the same as finishing it in the lab.

      Its already there (the latest OTA). The first OTA was stop after awhile to get some fixes and new features (like OK One Plus!) added. The role out was out for a few days already. I got the OTA yesterday. If your phone is rooted and on TWRP, OTA will not fully work – it will still download the file into your phone. You need to FLASH the zip file on recovery.

        Yes, knew that they stopped the first OTA update. Read about the company lying about the reason (well… lying by omission), and about the restarting of the next wave of updates.

        But still haven’t received an OTA update.
