Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,075

1. A method of wireless communication, comprising:receiving, by a user equipment (UE), a downlink transmission from at least one beam of a set of beams, the set of beams being associated with a multi-beam communication between the UE and a base station;
determining, by the UE, a metric, associated with a first beam and a second beam, of the set of beams, based at least in part on a form of averaging of metrics associated with a first slot and a second slot;
selecting, by the UE and based on the metric, the second beam to report beam related information associated with the at least one beam of the set of beams; and
reporting, by the UE, an indication that the second beam is a selected beam.
