How to install Android 8.0 Oreo Beta on Your Galaxy S8

What Android 8.0 Brings to the Galaxy S8

The biggest reason to update your Samsung phone to the latest version of Android is probably for the emoji. Not only does the the new software include a bunch of new emoji options, it also overhauls some of the older designs for the better.

According to another Reddit user who claims to have gotten early access to the beta on their Galaxy S8, the phone runs a lot faster and more smoothly after the update. Other new Android 8.0 features include the ability to turn off notification badges and snooze notifications, along with better battery life. However, it’s unclear if all those improvements will make it into Samsung’s version of the update.

Just like last year's beta the program has a limited number of slots — Samsung says it's only open to 10,000 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Here is how to install:

  1. Download the Samsung+ app from Google Play.
    If you're outside the U.S., you'll need the Samsung Members app instead.
  2. Sign in with your Samsung Account and make sure the device is registered to your account.
  3. Play the waiting game — the Samsung+ app will show a prompt on the main screen where you can enroll to participate.
  4. Tap through and accept the terms of the beta program.
  5. After successfully enrolling, go to Settings, Software update and Download updates manually to pull down the OTA.
