Try Android Nougat With Samsung's Galaxy Beta Program


Interested in trying out Android 7.0 Nougat before it officially hits your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge? Now you can.

Samsung this week launched its Galaxy Beta Program, giving owners of the aforementioned handsets a chance to check out Google's latest mobile operating system. The program is now open to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in the US, UK, and Korea, and will soon expand to China, but it won't work if you have the Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Games Limited Edition or Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition phones.

"Applicants are currently being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis," Samsung wrote in its announcement.

During the Galaxy Beta Program period, participants will be able to test Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung's latest features and provide feedback on performance, reliability, and usability. Samsung will use the feedback to "develop reliable, high-performing software and provide an improved and optimized experience to all Galaxy users."

Just beware: Samsung has warned that "unexpected errors may occur" on your handset, since the beta software is not the official version of the operating system.

If you have an active Samsung Account and meet the program requirements, you can apply by downloading the Samsung Members app. Samsung will send you a notification if you're approved.

Samsung first introduced the Galaxy Beta Program last year with the launch of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Meanwhile, if you're in the market for a new Samsung handset, you might want to head over to T-Mobile this weekend. The carrier just announced a buy one, get one (BOGO) promotion for the Galaxy S7.
