Those rocking the OnePlus One flagship killer have been expecting a software update to Cyanogen 12 for their smartphones. However, the upgrade has now been pulled, at least for the time being as the patch has been halted. Not to worry though, OnePlus says this is not a negative decision such as the phone bricking or software problems.Instead the Chinese manufacturer says that it paused the over the air update so that it could add an extra last minute feature to the software. The company's co-founder Carl Pei confirmed the new in a tweet sent out this morning. The new feature will be a voice activation where users can say "OK OnePlus". This is similar to Android's "OK Google", but while that feature opens a full voice assistant (Google Now), it is thought the "OK OnePlus" command will allow the user to activate certain features. Pei says that the delay will not take long and that Cyanogen 12 will continue rolling out to the OnePlus One during the middle of the week.
