The Galaxy S8’s Oreo Beta Program concludes today

Samsung has been running a beta program for Galaxy S8 to absorb feedback on its build of Android 8.0 Oreo. The company rolled out a number of preview updates over the last several months, and Android Police received word that the program concludes on January 26.

What does this mean? It means that Samsung is just about ready for the public release of Android 8.0 Oreo. The final beta has rolled out to Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners enrolled in Samsung’s testing program. As of today, January 26, there will be no more updates of the software until the official release is sent to all Galaxy S8 customers over-the-air.

Samsung is no longer offering support or responding to feedback, as the official update is in the works. The bad news is, we still don’t know an exact date as to when the software will begin to roll out, nor do we know what other Galaxy models will be supplied the update and when. Hopefully, since there will soon be a working version of Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung’s Experience 9.0, the company won’t take long to push the update to other devices such as the Galaxy Note models.
