There are several ways to install an app on the OnePlus smartphone, including downloading an .apk file and installing an app from the Google Play Store.
The Play Store offers apps for every area, such as messengers, social networks, games or useful system apps that are designed to speed up your own smartphone.
During and after entering a search term or the name of the corresponding app, we are immediately shown the results found or search suggestions.
By tapping the install button, the app is automatically downloaded and installed.
- Open the Play Store app
- Tap on the search bar
- Enter an app name
- Tap on Search or choose an app suggestion
- Tap on Install
Uninstall an app
If an installed app is no longer needed on the OnePlus smartphone, or if it no longer functions properly, the app can be uninstalled at any time to free up space.
Uninstalling an app will delete all associated app data and settings.
This means that any chat histories, photos, videos, PDF files, saved passwords or game progress will be irretrievably deleted unless they have been backed up elsewhere, such as the cloud, Google Drive or as a backup in internal storage.
An app can be uninstalled from the home screen or in the app drawer.
To do this, we simply hold the app icon and then select the uninstall button.
- Tap and hold an app
- Tap on Uninstall
- Confirm with OK
