Oreo beta program for Samsung Galaxy S8 officially kicks off

Galaxy S8 Beta Program Leaks, Oreo Update Round The Corner?

Owners of said devices that are located in the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Samsung's home turf of South Korea.

Signups for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo update beta are live and Galaxy S8 owners in select regions can now join the testing process ahead of the update's official release. Some users were talking about it in September also but people didn't pay attention towards them. The combined sales of Samsung Electronics Co's Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in South Korea have reached one million units, industry data showed today, a little over a month after the device hit local shelves, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

According to another Reddit user who claims to have gotten early access to the beta on their Galaxy S8, the phone runs a lot faster and more smoothly after the update. The handsets will receive regular over-the-air (OTA) updates of all builds of Android 8.0 Beta. However, with beta programs like this in place, enthusiasts should be able to get their hands on updates a bit quicker. It's also good practice to factory reset your device after installing the beta just to iron out any kinks.

If you have a Galaxy S8 or a Galaxy Note 8, then you can now download the "Samsung Members" app from the Google Play Store. If you depend on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ to get through the day, you probably want to stay put on Android Nougat. Other new Android 8.0 features include the ability to turn off notification badges and snooze notifications, along with better battery life.

To register for the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program on your Galaxy S8, you'll need to install the Samsung Members application from the Play Store, then locate and select the Register for Galaxy Beta Program option.
