One of the OnePlus 7 Pro's main features is its QHD+ OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. Not all apps take advantage of that refresh rate, though. Well, Auto90 app actually allows you to force apps to do so.

Auto90 offers per-app refresh rate settings

This app is actually much more than that, as it allows you to have full control over display refresh rate settings. You can set some apps to use 60Hz refresh rate, if you want, that's not a problem. Per-app settings are available here.

Auto90 app can come in real handy, as 60Hz refresh rate is easily noticeable if your eyes are used to 90Hz refresh rate.

Google actually did something recently that managed to annoy OnePlus 7 Pro users. One of the company's latest updates to Chrome disabled the 90Hz refresh rate in that browser.

We actually experienced this ourselves, as Chrome felt much less fluid all of the sudden on our OnePlus 7 Pro unit. Well, its refresh rate is to blame for that.

You can force Chrome to use a 90Hz refresh rate via an ADB command, but if you're willing to pay a small fee for Auto90, that app can force Chrome to play nice, and give you a bevy of other options.

We don't know why Google did that, as it doesn't make any sense. The company will hopefully bring 90Hz refresh rate support back to Chrome soon.

Chrome is just an example, of course. There are apps out there that are not allowed to use 90Hz refresh rate for one reason or the other. That's why this app is so useful, as it's immensely easy to use.

You'll need a PC in order to set it up

In order to set up Auto90, though, you will need to grant it a special permission using your computer. That will only take a moment or two, though, after which you won't need your PC any longer.

Once you set it up, the app is really easy to use. You basically have a toggle next to every app that is installed on your phone. You can set that toggle to 60Hz, 90Hz, or Auto settings, all of which are self-explanatory.

This application has been rated about 30 times at the time of writing this article, and it has a rather high rating. The app is currently holding a 4.8-star rating in the Play Store.
