Samsung Music update brings Android 8.0 Oreo support

Samsung is gradually updating some of its apps with support for Android 8.0 Oreo. This means that these apps will be compatible with the Android 8.0 Oreo update the day that it’s released for all users. Samsung has released a new update for Samsung Music today and the app has also received support for Android 8.0 Oreo.

Samsung Music supports Oreo

The Smart Switch app was one of the first Samsung apps to be updated with Oreo support two months ago. It was even before the Android 8.0 Oreo open beta program was launched for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Samsung Connect was next in line and it also received support two months back. Samsung VR was updated just two weeks ago with support for Oreo as well as Samsung’s new Galaxy A8 (2018) handsets.

The Samsung Music update rolling out today weighs in at just over 26MB. It bumps up the version number to 16.2.08.22. Aside from Android 8.0 Oreo support, it adds an alphabet scroll index, shuffle play and brings the ability to turn off the edge light on supported models.

The update is rolling out now via Galaxy Apps so you can get it right away. Still no word from Samsung about when it’s going to release Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to the public.
