Samsung has announced the end of its Android 8.0 beta program for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, with a final update potentially rolling out soon.
(CCM) — Samsung's Oreo beta testing program for its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones has come to an end today in the U.S. This means that the company will no longer roll out any new beta updates for Android 8.1 Oreo for the smartphones.
While Samsung has not yet revealed a release timeline for the final, stable version, according to a report by Droid Life, Samsung has sent an update to users enrolled in the beta program, stating that the program will end on Jan. 26. The Android 8.0 Oreo update will bring a slew of new features — including Picture-in-Picture, Autofill, and improved notifications — to Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. Additionally, the update will include the company's in-house Samsung Experience 9.0 software version and the Dual Messenger feature that debuted on Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.
Samsung has successfully rolled out seven Oreo beta builds to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users who were a part of the beta program. These beta updates were made available for unlocked and carrier-bound Galaxy S8 and S8+ users in the US.
