    Read that article this morning. Very cool. I, however, take seriously bad pictures no matter what kind of phone/app/settings I use. Probably wouldn't help me much. Have to say though... Anything would be an improvement on the "selective focus" mode on my S8. That's the closest we currently have to any kind of portrait mode right? I'm an admitted camera ignoramus.

    Well if it works on the S8 or any supported phone for that matter then that's huge. The only place where the S8 is sorta lacking is DoF for portraits. This will solve it.

    Have you tried it yet?

    OK, decided to give it try. Downloaded and opened without problem. But... And forgive me if I'm being an *****... I don't know where to view the pics! They are not in the gallery.

    For me its saved here:
    Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 - Unlocked (UK) Sprint & T-Mobile (US) only.-screenshot_20180103-075122.jpg


    And I was able to install it on my S8+ running stock Nougat. It's a little glitchy but works great. Portrait shots from both the front and rear cameras are a lot better then Selective Focus.

    Were you able to view the portrait mode photos this way? It's only showing the "regular" photos for me in the Google Photos gallery.

    Weird. I'm on stock G955U1 ROM and the pics are visible on both Google Photos and stock Gallery app.

    Hi Jamie and welcome. If you're talking about this Oreo Beta, it's a closed program. Don't think it's possible to join at this late date (getting close to official release)
    If you're talking about the camera software, there is a link for the apk download in the news article https://m.androidcentral.com/pixel-2...-google-phones
    To check for updates in general (I'm assuming you have the S8 or S8+) go to settings>software update and tap download updates manually. It will tell you whether you are on the latest OS version

    I just installed b5. Nothing to report so far. Did my usual install, then wipe the cache partition. We'll see what happens. Still on the December patch.

    This thread is about the BETA builds of 8.0.0.

    Please begin a new thread more suitable perhaps and not intermingled. Tx

    That surprising part that b5 didn't include security update. Or maybe is very different for Oreo.

    There is a nice list of changes on the Community though.
