Samsung Galaxy S8 all set for Android 8.0 Oreo Beta update

Samsung Galaxy S8 all set for Android 8.0 Oreo Beta update

Samsung's Experience 9.0 beta will give customers testing the preview version a chance to try out the new features in the UI. The redditor who has experienced the feel of the beta version mentioned how some of Samsungs apps have been brilliantly redesigned.

Samsung is launching a Samsung Experience 9.0 beta program for select customers.

Samsung wants the public to test its next take on Android 8.0 Oreo. As of November 2, "select" handsets will get to use the new software, but they are nonetheless testers, so they'll be expected to give Samsung feedback on performance, stability, usability, and report whatever kinks they find in general.

Previously known as TouchWiz, Samsung Experience is based on the Android OS and has expanded beyond the user interface to provide Galaxy users with a consistent and seamless experience across all Samsung mobile software, apps and services.

UK S8 owners are only eligible if they have an unlocked device. In the United Kingdom, users just need to have the unlocked version of the phone.

Among the key business-focused features of Samsung's new phone is its support for quick and streamlined enterprise device management.

To apply for the program, users must have an active Samsung Account and meet certain requirements.

This beta test is extremely limited, with a select number of users in South Korea, the USA, and United Kingdom being allowed in.

The crucial question, of course, is when Samsung plans to roll out a final, stable version of Android Oreo for all Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus owners, because it took until January before Android Nougat reached Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users this year.
