OnePlus beefs up and rebrands its Zen Mode app without telling anybody
OnePlus Zen Mode/Zen Space app improvements
The app now gives users two options when choosing to go “Zen”. Deep Zen mode is used when you want to completely detach yourself from using your OnePlus phone, blocking all functionality besides taking photos and making/taking emergency calls.
Light Zen mode, on the other hand, is less strict with its restrictions. It allows you to pick apps that would not be affected while you are taking a break. Additionally, unlike Deep Zen mode, Light Zen mode gives you the option to exit it completely, and use the phone as you would usually.
There are two presets that come with Light Zen mode — Work and Study. Both make use of the Work Life Balance feature and pick the apps that would make sense to be included. Of course, you can edit that list of apps if you want to add or remove any.
The Zen Space app comes with a redesigned look in the form of new themes, and you can now also track your Zen session via the Always-On Display, where the app will give you reminders and some at-a-glance information about your progress.
On top of everything else, OnePlus has added more time durations, new achievement medals, and a dashboard to check your weekly statistics.
