How to Get the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta on Your Galaxy S8

Here’s what you need to know to get your hands on Samsung’s Android 8.0 beta as soon as possible.

How to Prepare for Samsung’s Android 8.0 Beta Test

Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed when it plans to release the first beta, but we may already have the details. One Reddit user recently did some digging in the Samsung Plus app (which offers tips and access to special programs in the U.S.) and discovered multiple mentions of something called the Oreo Beta Program.

According to the leak, Samsung will open up its Android 8.0 beta for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on Nov. 2 at 11 a.m. (no timezone mentioned), when you’ll be able to access it via the Samsung Plus app. In the U.S., the beta is available for T-Mobile, Sprint and unlocked versions of the phones, with just 7,500 spots open for each.

In the leak, Samsung also notes that the beta program is “First come, first served,” so you’ll want to act fast. In the meantime, it’s worth making sure you have the Samsung Plus app ready to go on your phone.
