Last week Oneplus has updated there oneplus 3 and 3t duo with Oxygen OS 4.1.1 which is based on latest android nougat 7.1.1. This update brings lots of changes and newly added features to the table. But the major change was the redesigned UI which includes new pixel like launcher with swipe up gesture and app shortcut feature. Now if you take a closer look over the UI then you will see that it looks 90% similar to the UI of pixel devices and the only thing that is missing is the Pixel navigation keys but not anymore. Now you can get that too by just flashing a zip file and that’s exactly what I am going to show you guys.
Excited so let’s get started.

The prerequisites are
- Your bootloader should be unlocked
- You show have pre-installed TWRP recovery
Now if you don’t have an unlocked bootloader and preinstalled TWRP recovery then don’t worry I had already wrote an article on that.
Now once you have successfully installed the TWRP recovery head over to your PC and download this Pixel NavBar zip file and put it in the internal memory of your device.
After that switch off your device, now press and hold volume down + power key at the same time until you see this oneplus logo. This will basically boot your device in TWRP recovery now click on install and navigate the NavBar zip file that we download earlier and select it. Now swipe this blue button to right to flash this zip file. Once flashing is done reboot your device and after rebooting you can see that now you have the pixel navigation keys which also has this cute little home screen animation.
So now your oneplus 3/3t has all the features of pixel devices which you can show off among your friends.
