OnePlus Nord 2 5G receives OxygenOS A.16 update with fix for call recording in India


OnePlus Nord 2 5G receives a new OxygenOS update that fixes a call recording problem in India. The latest update comes just days after OnePlus released the OxygenOS A.15 for OnePlus Nord 2 5G. The last OxygenOS update, according to user reports, disabled call recording through the Google Phone app in India. OnePlus Nord 2 5G was launched last July and comes pre-installed with the Google Phone app, which has the call recording feature and allows users to record voice calls without the need for third-party apps.

As originally reported by XDA Developers, OnePlus has started rolling out the OxygenOS A.16 update for OnePlus Nord 2 5G in India and Europe. The update comes with software version DN2101_11_A.16 for Indian users, while it is available for their European counterparts as DN2103_11_A.16.

The changelog of the update for Indian users, shared by some users on the OnePlus community forums, shows that the update “fixes the loss of Google call recording.” Other changes are the same as in the last update. The software update does not bring any changes to the Android security patch, as it is the version from December 2021.

After the last update, some OnePlus Nord 2 5G users in India complained about disabling the call recording feature that was available through the Google Phone app. Although OnePlus has not officially recognized the problem, the update appears to address user complaints.

However, some users have now reported in the OnePlus community forums that they can no longer turn off the flashlight using the power button after updating the OnePlus Nord 2 5G to the latest software version. The phone usually turns off the built-in flashlight when a user double-clicks the power button on the side.

Gadgets 360 reached out to OnePlus for clarity on the update. This report will be updated when the company replies.
