Oreo beta program for Samsung Galaxy S8 officially kicks off

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

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

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.

Samsung Experience 9.0 is based on Android Oreo and will be the version it releases with its next Galaxy flagship, which presumably will be called the Galaxy S9.

If your company buys the devices through "authorized Samsung channel partners" in bulk, you'll end up paying $994 (about £750/AU$1,295) for each device, which is only slightly more than a Note 8 "phablet" costs for the consumer market. The idea is a smooth and seamless mobile experience between and among Samsung apps, services, and software.

The nifty App Pairs feature that made its debut on the Galaxy Note 8 has also made its way to the Galaxy S8 and the Camera app has also received a few redesigns. The former allows IT admins to quickly, securely and remotely configure and deploy custom mobile experiences while the latter helps them manage a fleet of devices through centralized OS and software version control, complete with scheduled updates.

The first phase of the update should include North America, the United Kingdom, and South Korea.

It's tempting, especially given that we don't have an official release date for the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update. The final version is said to arrive in December this year. The update is bringing detailed control of notifications, new app icon badges, notification dots, and long press for context menus.

Samsung, in the changelog, says it has made changes in the Quick Panel, Home Screen gestures, Samsung Keyboard, System Performance, Edge Screen, Samsung Cloud, Dual Messenger and more.
