Oppo Find N2 Flip update adds Spotify widget and quick reply features

Oppo Find N2 Flip update

Oppo has rolled out a new software update for its debut foldable phone, the Find N2 Flip, designed to take full advantage of its generously sized cover screen.

Included in the update are two major additions custom-made for the device: a Spotify widget, and speech-to-text functionality across popular messaging apps.

A strong competitor in the emerging foldable market, the Find N2 Flip launched locally in March 2023 at a price of $1,499 available online, plus Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi. Compared to other foldable phones on the market, Oppo’s entry has the largest cover screen by some distance, with a 3.26-inch display viewable when the phone is shut.

Oppo collaborated with Spotify to develop a widget exclusively for the Find N2 Flip update, taking advantage of the large cover screen. With it, you have more control over your music streaming experience. From the cover display, you can play, pause and skip tracks, use the Heart button, and access recommended music, all without unfolding the phone.

Another helpful feature included in the major software update is a custom-built enhancement to messaging apps. Now, when you receive a message and view it on the cover screen, you can send a quick reply using speech-to-text. Oppo says it’s available for all messaging apps that support quick replies. This includes WhatsApp, Messenger, Messages by Google, Telegram and LINE.

To access the added features, speech-to-text automatically applies once you download the latest update. Meanwhile, to access the Spotify widget, you need to manually add it via the screen widgets settings, and then enable it via “Pocket Player”.

We compared the Find N2 Flip with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 earlier in the year, and found plenty to like about Oppo’s first foldable. There are upsides and downsides to both phones, but the large cover screen on the Find makes it a compelling package. Another strong flip contender is the latest Motorola Razr, which impressed us throughout the review process.

This update from Oppo signals that the company intends to deliver on its four-year major update commitment and that it wants to make the most of the flip format.
