The Galaxy beta program may be provided via theSamsung Members app or the Samsung+ app for the USA, which are available through the Google Play store or Galaxy Apps, depending on the user's country of residence. E-FOTA enables IT admins to comprehensively manage a fleet of devices through centralized OS and software version control and scheduled updates.

Starting today, owners of the devices in South Korea, the United States, and the UK can download this beta firmware and play with Oreo before it's released to the public. While the Galaxy S8 gets the update, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to get updated very soon.

The business-focused version of the Galaxy Note8 reflects Samsung's "acknowledgment that enterprises and their users have a different set of needs than the typical consumer", Patrick Moorhead, founder, president, and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, wrote today in Forbes.

"Samsung Experience is created to provide Galaxy users with a consistent and seamless experience across all our mobile software, apps and services".

UK S8 owners are only eligible if they have an unlocked device. The updates are security patches and nothing more, but you should still try to grab them immediately. The beta program has been referred to as the Samsung Experience 9.0 beta, which will be based on Android Oreo and be featured with the Samsung S9. Samsung confirms that the 9.0 version will be "available on the next flagship Galaxy device". The Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition is similar to Note 8. Since beta programmes are exposed to crashes and bugs, it is wise on Samsung's end to roll out in a phased manner. Of course, you should also provide Samsung with valuable feedback to make sure that the beta updates keep coming in the future.
