    can someone let me know if battery takes a hit or gets improved?

    that's the only thing I'm worried about before I sign up for the beta cause my battery life as of now is great (regular S8 constantly getting 4+ hours screen on time)

    Got the notice in the members app (uk) and updated. All seems smooth, hoping it stays that way.

    I got the invite to register for the Beta but I'm getting this message as the phone was bought in UK but I live in Argentina and use a local sim card now. I initially activated it with a UK sim card no problem. I'm wondering if it will let me in if I put the UK sim card in temporarily.Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 - Unlocked (UK) Sprint & T-Mobile (US) only.-beta.jpg

    After you enroll, give it a 10 minutes or so, then reboot your phone. Go to Settings / Software Update and do a manual check. It will then start downloading a 1309.56MB package. Good luck! I'm downloading now...

    How long did it take between enrollment and actually seeing the update? I got the notice to enroll and I did but haven't seen any notification about the update as of yet.

    Edit: Answered my own question. Took about five minutes of repeated "check for updates" for it to show up. Downloading it now.

    I missed the post where you replied to Mr. Spencer explaining what you did.

    Took my phone about 15min before I was able to update. I didn't get a notification though, I had to go the settings and manually check for an update.

    By the way, my update just went through and like another poster mentioned, swiftkey is definitely not running on the beta.

    Edit: uninstalled and reinstalled. App working fine now.

    Whoever said to Force Quit the Samsung + app, thank you.

    After doing so the app showed I could enroll.

    Restarted but still waiting for beta to show it's available to download.

    Question...if you install the beta, when Oreo comes out of beta for these phones, will it update to the final version or will the beta have to be backed out or anything? I've not done anything beta on Android OS before.

    While I can't say definitively for a Samsung device (my first one) when I went from betas to stable releases on my 5X I did not have to wipe the device. It worked just like a normal OTA update.
