Galaxy S8, S8+ Oreo beta launches with Experience 9.0 program

Galaxy S8 Beta Program Leaks, Oreo Update Round The Corner?

One of the best reasons to try the Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo beta is to help the company improve the software before it's released to millions of Galaxy S8 users around the world. "Previously known as TouchWiz, Samsung Experience is based on the Android OS and has expanded beyond the user interface to provide Galaxy users with a consistent and seamless experience across all Samsung mobile software, apps and services". If that's covered, then simply grab either the Samsung Members or Samsung+ app and enlist your device in the beta; it's available on the Play Store and on the Galaxy Apps.

There are a bunch of Nougat features that are still present in addition to the new Oreo features.

Samsung describes the update as the Samsung Experience 9.0 that is "based on the Android OS", which is a amusing way of referring to your Android skin, but I'll just leave it at that.

Koh Dong-jin, president of Samsung Electronics' Mobile Communications, gives a speech during a launching ceremony for Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Note 8 in Seoul September 12, 2017. OEM's such as Samsung and LG often take months to update their handsets, by which time Google has likely announced an even newer version. That is, if you also live in South Korea, the UK, or the United States.

Samsung hasn't officially confirmed when it plans to release the first beta, but we may already have the details.

Google released Android Oreo in August but so far only Pixel and Nexus owners have the update. A changelog for firmware version G950USQI1ZQJJ (T-Mobile) reveals the upcoming changes including the addition of Samsung Experience 9.0 and improvements on the Quick Panel, Home Screen, Samsung Keyboard, System Performance, Edge Screen, Samsung Cloud, Samsung Dual Messenger, Find My Mobile, and Samsung Dex. It also has new and redesigned emoji.
