[Update: More info] Android 7.0 Nougat beta test for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge starts November 9

Samsung offered a beta program for Marshmallow last year which allowed Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge owners to get a taste of Android 6.0 before the update was officially released. We reported a few days ago that Samsung has started Android 7.0 Nougat beta testing for the Galaxy S7 edge in the United Kingdom. It has since pulled the Galaxy Beta Program app and the servers don’t appear to be fully functional right now but according to a Samsung website the beta test will start November 9.

Called the Galaxy Beta Program, the Android 7.0 Nougat beta test enables users to test out the new major update and provide Samsung with feedback about its performance, stability and usability. To participate users first have to download the Galaxy Beta Program application from Galaxy Apps and then have to submit an application form through the Registration menu inside the app. Do keep in mind that registration alone won’t cut it, users have to be selected by Samsung in order to take part in the program.

The website adds that this beta program will be open to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners in the United Kingdom and that the test period runs from November 9 to mid-December. It also points out that the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic Edition and Batman Injustice Edition are not supported in this beta program. If that really is the case, expect a formal announcement of the Android 7.0 Nougat beta test this week.

Update: The Android 7.0 Nougat beta testing program for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge will be open to users in the United States, South Korea and China as well the United Kingdom. Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint models of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are supported for users in the United States. All unlocked models in the UK are supported while South Koreans will need to have a KT, SKTelecom or LG U+ model in order to register. Compatible models have not been listed on the Chinese page yet. Users will be able to register in supported markets starting November 9.

UK still errors. Apparently you have to request a beta invite via the Members app (this is what they had to do in S Korea) but the Members app doesn’t seem to work either, I’m on the latest XEU build (2/11/16)

I don’t know why this is such a big deal we all know how Samsung works the Android Nougat will finish it’s beta testing stage at mid December but no one will ever see it running on any Galaxy S7 edge or the Galaxy S7 because it will run on the Galaxy S8 to give it an advantage so we will be seeing it in June or July and not right away

Hi all, I have an unlocked ITV flat S7 and I wanted to install the BTU firmware via Odin, as I’ve always done (even last year, to install Marshmallow beta on my former S6).

But I tried several times, hard resetting the phone after uploading the files, and no matter what the CSC always stays ITV…

Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong? Thanks

If the beta test is running until mid of December I wouldn´t expect a final release in 2016 anymore 🙁

got the app, surely we need to sign up prior to the 9th and then see if we’re excepted on the 9th?

I think this 9/11 should be a marketing strategy as the beta program is addressed to some US devices as well.
Why not on Friday?
Why not on any other day?
Why precisely on Wednesday 9/11?
