Samsung has started the Galaxy Beta Program last year, offering Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge owners the chance to test out Android 6.0 Marshmallow before it was officially released. Now, 7.0 Nougat beta will be available via the same program to Galaxy S7/edge participants in the UK.
Last week, Android 7.0 Nougat beta update was distributed to S7 edge owners in the UK, but for some reason, the servers for the have been cut off and Samsung had to explain what happened. The good news is that in two days, Android 7.0 Nougat update beta will come to both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and most likely, the 7.1 Nougat update will roll out globally in December, and it will be available for other flagships, as well. Besides the new features introduced by Google, Samsung will add its own Grace UX and Note 7’s Always-on display.
Users who want to take part in the Galaxy Beta Programme must download the application from Galaxy Apps, then, after they install it, they will submit a “Galaxy Beta Programme” application form through “Registration” menu, which is found on the top of the app. Only users who have a Samsung Account and meet all participation criteria will be selected and users will be able to test Android 7.0 Nougat beta update from November 9 until mid of December.
Samsung has mentioned that “The end date of Beta Programme may be subject to changes based on results of feedback” and that the Galaxy S7 edge Olympic edition and Batman Injustice Edition are not supported. Users will no be charged to test the beta version of Android 7.0 Nougat, but they are advised to download and update software using a WiFi connection, to avoid paying a high mobile data bill.
Users who will want to send feedback to Samsung about the beta software, they will be able to inform the company about errors, malfunctions and poor performance via the Contact us menu.
