Despite not shipping enabled from stock, use this guide to have stereo speakers on OnePlus 6T. We’ve all been there – when you were trying to let your friends hear something from your phone and the usual single down-firing speakers of your smartphone just won’t give enough sound. No amount of cupping your hands and changing the orientation of the phone will fix the fact that a smartphone’s speaker setup is usually good for a quiet place, and for a single user only. Ambient noise and multiple users will only magnify your smartphone’s lack of volume. To fix this, we can utilize the second speaker to output the main sound.
