[Update: Spots filled] Samsung reopens registrations for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Android 7.0 beta testing in the UK

Three weeks ago, Samsung opened registrations for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users to beta test Android 7.0 on their devices through its Galaxy Beta program. However, there were limited slots, and the registrations were closed soon after. Now, Samsung has reopened registrations in the UK.

If you were one of those in the UK who missed out on registering your device the last time, now is the time to apply for beta testing once again. Samsung has also released three updates for beta testers so far to fix some bugs and to introduce new features. Moreover, as per Samsung’s email to one of our readers, the company will start the second phase of registrations later this week in the US.

You can also check out all the new features that Samsung has introduced with Android 7.0 beta update.

Update: All the spots for the Galaxy Beta Program have been filled, so the company has now stopped accepting registrations.

I am from Nigeria and I have nougat beta running on my gs7 edge.

*Downloaded and flashed my phone with UK marshmallow (precisely BTU),
*Then registered for the beta program via Samsung members app
*immediately I checked the update via settings and there the update was.

The update is the coolest I have seen since I started using Samsung devices.

Then go to settings check for update .if you got update of 92.5 mb then voila now your part of android n beta program. Then after that once it get I installed again go over to settings and check software update you will 314.5 mb of software update.

Install the official UK firmware via odin. Then download and install the galaxy Beta programme and register your device. Then go settings and check for updates and You’ll get the last beta firmware with all the updates.

Would I have to flash the BTU csc as well though? Don’t really fancy resetting my phone but if I can keep my home_csc then I’ll sure do it. Also are there still spots available now?

didn´t ur device have already the beta program, cause I installed the beta firmware from odin from other sources. and the beta says “ur device isn´t registered”. Do u mean even if my firmware isn´t official through beta program, I should install the 2:nd update and then register?

Downloading the beta. Thanks. I Flashed the official UK firmware via odin, registered to the re open beta programme and now it’s downloading the official beta through OTA. Thanks for the info!

rmbln01

Yes!! Been waiting for Sammy to re-open the Beta Registration.
Downloading Beta 2 OTA. After this one, Beta 3 OTA.

For Non-UK like me, Here’s how you can join:

1. Odin flash Nougat Beta 1 to your device.
2. Download and install Beta app.
3. Register
4. Once registered, you’ll be able to receive OTA updates.

Sammobile has all the necessary download links for the files.

Beta app is Samsung Members?

rmbln01
rmbln01

Nope, they’re two different apps. You can only use Samsung Members apps if you’re registered to Beta Program. Hence, you need to install also the Beta App (.apk around 19Mb).

You may download the app from here:

I tried posting the Sammobile Link for the Beta App but I got an “awaiting moderation” message.

Samsung Members & Beta App are two different apps. The former is dependent with the latter. Meaning, you can’t use Samsung Members app if you’re not registered to Beta Program.

it doesn’t work if you are outside UK, if someone can make a OTA please share it.

Install the official UK firmware, flash via odin. Install the beta programme app, register, and then update via OTA and you’ll get the beta with all the updates.

Registering doesn’t work outside U.K., atleast not for me as I eversince just get an error message. Faking my VPN to UK hasn’t worked, aswell not OTA to update the first available and flashable Android 7 ver

if someone has it already, please share it with SamMobile, for the people who are outside UK to get the chance to download it.

impossible
but flashing MM 6.0.1 official BTU firmware will surely grant you Beta registration and all the OTAs afterwards!

Samsung probably won’t expand to new countries any time soon. Samsung Philippines did tell a customer that this week might see them getting the beta, but we guess they might have been talking about this one from the UK being reopened. Fingers crossed. 🙂
