Remember the OnePlus One, which at the time of its release looked like something fantastic and realistic? Those days are over and if the company’s firstborn were something great and justified the nickname “flagship killers”, then today it is not so. And all this due to rising prices. However, OnePlus smartphones do not let fans go and attract more and more users for various reasons. One of them is software.
OnePlus forces the installation of the OnePlus Buds application on its smartphones
OxygenOS is a minimalist and elegant user interface with a neutral design that does not disturb or impose its mood. There is a feeling that the kids at OnePlus know how to have a lot of fun. But recently, something has broken down, it seems, into the utterly improved mechanism of hearing and user satisfaction.
For example, a number of developers and users recently criticized The company began blaming software expansion The company began adding non-removable applications to the firmware. And now is the case with the OnePlus Buds app.
In particular, some users accused OnePlus of secretly and forcibly installing this application if the automatic update of Google Play is enabled. OnePlus Buds is designed to help you set up and find your cordless headphones.
Not all users liked the company’s policy regarding the unauthorized installation of the program, its enforcement. Enraged users began bombarding the app with angry comments on Google Play, urging OnePlus to listen to its users, to stop the practice of forcing unnecessary software installation. The user is free to choose which applications to download to the smartphone. Their anger is understandable because not everyone uses OnePlus Buds headphones and the app with the same name is just useless to them.
But OnePlus is far from alone in this software enforcement. Google did the same after the release of the Pixel Buds headphones. The corresponding application for cooperation with them also appeared without a license on a Pixel smartphone.
