1. A method for wireless communication by a user equipment (UE), comprising:
establishing a connection with a base station using a first beam;
receiving configuration information configuring the UE to decode a first downlink control information (DCI) including a bit field comprising a beam switch command, wherein the UE is configurable to decode at least the first DCI including the bit field or a second DCI not including the bit field;
receiving a DCI transmission using the first beam, the DCI transmission including the beam switch command; and
communicating with the base station using a second beam based at least in part on the DCI transmission.
