Less than a month after releasing OxygenOS 3.2.1, a new update to the OxygenOS is now available for OnePlus 3 users. Like any other update, this rollout is also incremental, but OnePlus promises to get all users covered with the update as quickly as possible.

Weighing in at 271MB the OxygenOS 3.2.2 version bundles the July Android security patch and a bunch of notable improvements. These include enhanced notification management in doze mode and noise cancellation in video recording. It addresses the alert slider/silent mode issue and disables the fingerprint sensor while in the pocket.

The new firmware brings NFC toggle in quick settings and has updated 4k video recording codec. In addition to that, the new OxygenOS version adds the latest security patches and various other optimisations.

If the OTA update is yet to make its way to your region, you can make use of the download links for either OTA or full ROM to perform a manual installation. Below are two guides detailing how to install OxygenOS ROM on OnePlus 3. You can go for either of the methods depending on the root status of your phone.
