MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Global smart device brand OPPO continues to innovate not just their gadgets, but also their software, to evolve with the ever-changing needs of its customers. With the launch of its newest operating system, the ColorOS 13, OPPO continues to live up to this promise, providing Filipinos with a highly efficient and easy-to-use experience on their smart devices.
In order to help users live and work more easily and intelligently, OPPO developed and upgraded a range of features in the ColorOS 13 that allow for seamless connectivity and integration into different lifestyles.
Improving working efficiency across multiple devices
It’s now more common than not to work with multiple devices like a computer and a smartphone at the same time. Despite some advantages, having to constantly switch between devices can be frustrating and time consuming. First introduced on ColorOS 12, Multi-Screen Connect has been upgraded on ColorOS 13 to help users to seamlessly switch and work across devices, enjoying enhanced efficiency and convenience at work or home.
With this feature, users can now sync up their OPPO smartphone to the OPPO Pad Air, for powerful productivity and immersive entertainment. Just one tap of the Multi-Screen Connect toggle in the Control Center can connect the two devices, supporting operations like screen casting, reverse control, file transfer, and copy and paste of text between them.
Connection between PCs and OPPO devices has also been enhanced in ColorOS 13, as users can now display two different smartphone apps simultaneously, plus mirror their smartphone screen on a laptop. There is no need to squeeze in multiple apps on the smartphone screen thanks to this feature, helping significantly improve multitasking efficiency.
The upgraded Multi-Screen Connect also makes it much easier and faster to transfer files between devices. Transfer images, music, documents and videos from OPPO smartphone to OPPO tablet or smartphone to PC without consuming any mobile data. Nearby Share from Android 13 can also help transfer files between a phone and nearby Windows devices and even copy-and-paste text across gadgets.
Boosting remote meeting productivity
With remote working becoming such a normal part of people’s lives, the Meeting Assistant on ColorOS 13 is here to help boost productivity during online meetings. Once the OPPO phone detects that the user is in an online meeting, it will trigger adaptive network optimizations to allocate more resources to meeting apps such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet. This helps ensure users have a smoother and higher-quality internet connection during important calls. This feature also minimizes distractions by simplifying notifications, including changing regular banner notifications to simplified banner notifications with only single-line-text content.
Protecting information privacy and data security
ColorOS 13 also includes enhanced privacy and safety functions to help users feel safe and secure when using their OPPO devices. As we share more and more of our lives online, it can be difficult managing which information should be shared or not. With just one click, Auto Pixelate can immediately recognize and pixelate sensitive information, like profile photos and names on chat screenshots in Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
Meanwhile, the new Private Safe in ColorOS 13 comes with the adoption of the widely used Advanced Encryption Standard, which keeps pictures, videos, and other files encrypted and stored under a locked, private directory. The files one stores in Private Safe need to be decrypted before they can be shared or transferred, ensuring an extremely high level of security for sensitive data.
Moreover, the underlying privacy capabilities of Android 13 have been integrated into ColorOS 13 to provide comprehensive, all-round safety. Data copied to the clipboard can be automatically deleted after a short period of time, preventing unwanted access to personal information by third party apps. When connecting to Wi-Fi, users will not be asked for any location permissions, ensuring no unnecessary disclosure of location data. ColorOS 13 also provides more options when granting notification permissions, allowing to minimize disruptions.
Thanks to its wealth of privacy and security features, ColorOS 13 has been recognized by authoritative third-party organizations including ISO, ePrivacy, and TrustArc. This recognition demonstrates OPPO’s ability to protect user privacy and safety to a level that exceeds industry standards.
Starting with the Find X5 Pro and Find X5, and then rolling out to the rest of the devices, OPPO users worldwide will soon be able to enjoy the smart productivity and enhanced privacy provided by ColorOS 13.
