Samsung has polished up some bugs, and features in need of improvement with its latest Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The two Samsung models will be first among all the company’s smartphones to receive Google’s Android 8.0 software. This is the fifth beta, meaning that the public upgrade should be here very soon, perhaps next month.
For those of you on Samsung’s beta track for the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, you’ll be happy to know that the fifth and perhaps final Oreo beta has begun to roll out over-the-air (OTA). However, not much is included other than bug fixes and stability improvements. If you’ve been hesitant to join the program all this time, you’re probably best off waiting for the official update, despite most of the issues and errors being fixed. It shouldn’t be long!
The above image captured of the update change-log comes from SamMobile. If you’re updating from the fourth beta, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise to you. However, if this is your first time on the beta, you’ll be welcomed with many of Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo features listed here including new notifications, performance and battery improvements by further restricting background data, picture-in-picture mode, new adaptive icons, system-wide auto-fill, and more! You’ll also get some new Samsung exclusive features.
Let us know down in the comment section if you have the update and if you find anything new that we haven’t mentioned.
