Samsung today said select customers will soon be able to beta test Samsung Experience 9.0 before its official release. The Samsung Experience, formerly called TouchWiz, is the user interface that Samsung created for its device ecosystem. Starting November 2, Galaxy S8 and S8+ users based in the U.S., U.K., and South Korea will have access to Samsung Experience 9.0, which is based on Android 8 Oreo. Samsung hopes to use the beta period to assess user feedback and fine-tune the platform before its release for "the next flagship Galaxy device." Interested beta testers will need to have an active Samsung account and meet certain (unspecified) requirements. Samsung said the beta may be distributed via the Samsung+ app in the U.S., which is available from the Google Play Store. People can apply to test Samsung Experience 9.0 through the app.

I signed up.

I have an unlocked US S8+, went onto Samsung + and was offered the beta program and applied for it. (yesterday). I hope sometime in the next week or two Oreo beta will be offered for me to try. I'm just wondering if I do take the beta Oreo, will I be able to get the official release when it is offered sometime later.

I just check again for an OTA and taking a 1309.21mb download. I will post any problems and positives with Oreo.
