Android 8 - Oreo is out of Beta and released but as to when phones will receive it is another matter @Arabianstar

 

More here > Oreo-8-0.


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²⁴ Ultra 512Gb ~ Titanium Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Samsung recently released Oreo Beta for the s8 and s8+ via the Samsung Members App. 

However that was for the first 5,000 applicants which I think has been fulfilled now.

20:25:55Welcome to Samsung Support. Please allow me a moment to read through your enquiry.
Mr Saban *****
20:28:00Hi my enquiry is to ask when and how I join the beta testing programme on my unlocked / directly purchased from Samsung upgrade programme .
20:28:24I'm using an S9 + sorry
20:29:09ROSS I would appreciate an honest answer as the web is full of fake news about this. Thank you
20:30:07As you can see I'm using the Samsung members app and Samsung + app to try and find out but getting so much bull***** from everyone....
Ross *****
20:30:31Hello, Saban. My name is Ross from Samsung Chat Support. How are you doing today? I do understand that you would like to join the Android Pie Beta and on your Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone that is purchase under upgrade programme. Since you have me here right now, let me please do my very best to assist you on this.
Mr *****
20:30:47Oh and its for the One UI sorry lop
20:30:55#lol
20:31:13Thank you.
20:32:04I have actually waited 9 in the que three times
Ross *****
20:32:06You're welcome, Saban. I would like to verify that you would like to avail the Android Pie Beta Programme on your Samsung Galaxy S9+. Is my understanding correct?
Mr Saban *****
20:32:28Yes please Ross thank you
20:33:50My model number is SM-G965F
20:34:27Is it not called the ONE UI or is there two programmes?
Ross *****
20:34:41Thank you very much for validating, Saban. Please give me a moment to gather all the information we have on the matter and how you will avail the Android 9 Beta Programme.
Mr Saban *****
20:35:23Okay great ... thank you
20:37:08Can you confirm that the ONE UI is just a testing ground for the Samsung Experience or is actually the beta for the whole Android Pie ?
20:39:14Hello ?
20:39:45😊👌
Ross *****
20:39:45One UI is the unique user interface for Galaxy phones, reflecting the signature look and style of the Galaxy brand. The One UI Beta Programme is owned, managed and operated by Samsung independently in order to provide better experience and reliable software based on user feedback. To join the beta testing you will need to download the “Samsung Members” app from the Galaxy Apps or Play Store. Then submit the “Galaxy Beta Program” application form through “Registration of One UI Beta Program” in the notice. As long as customers meet all the participation criteria, the registration process will be completed.
20:40:35I would like to note that the Android Pie Beta Programme is currently being release in the United Kingdom and the device able to participate is Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. The release would be on 20th of November 2018.
Mr Saban *****
20:41:51The notice is not in the app I've checked and checked again?
20:43:16I take it the notice will just appear in the notice section and I have to check on the 20th ?
Ross *****
20:44:22That is correct, Saban. After registering for the Beta programme, you can update your software through the settings menu on their Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus. The programme is free to all Galaxy S9 users. However, it is recommended that customers download and update software when connected to Wi-Fi. It would best to wait until 20th of November to do the update since its still not being release.
Mr Saban *****
20:47:05So let me confirm the Beta testing for Android Pie will include the new One UI together and the notice / invitation to join the beta testing programme will appear in the notice section of the members app I'm taking to you through now ?
20:48:26I then fill the application in and then wait for the OTA download through software updates on my handset ?
20:48:46And it's defiantly on 20th November?
20:50:12I am very greatful for your honesty as rumours are flying it's the 15th November???
Ross *****
20:50:16
Mr Saban *****
20:51:13Thank you very much for your valued time and honesty. God bless you thank you Ross kindest regards Saban *****
Ross *****
