Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Oreo beta program is now live in the UK

It’s time! The beta program for Android 8.0 Oreo on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ should now be live for users in the UK, and you can hop into the Samsung Members app on your phone to enroll. You should see a notice about the beta’s availability in some point; just make sure you have a Samsung account logged in to on your phone, as there are limited slots only 5,000 slots and creating an account will take a couple of minutes.

There’s a lot on Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and S8+; the official changelog lists all the major ones, and we will be taking a closer look at the new features and changes. If you reside in the UK (and have an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+ purchased in the country), check out how you can register for the beta. We will have more detailed signup instructions shortly, but for now, keep an eye at the Samsung Members app to make sure you don’t miss out on the chance to enroll.

The beta will also go live today in the US and South Korea. The second phase will see it extended to Germany, Spain, France, Poland, China and India, but there’s no word yet on when the second phase will start. We’re guessing it will coincide with the release of the first update to the beta firmware, but we will have to wait and see.

Got access to the beta? Let us know in the comments if you did!

Thanks, Alec!
