One of Android’s major disadvantages is the fact that Android versions don’t become available for all users right away. Google phones do receive the updates instantly, but the other users have to wait for them. In many cases the waiting lasts a few months, and it can last even more than that.

This subject became once again relevant when Android Oreo was released back in August. Despite the fact that it is already December, there are not too many users that received the update. If you are one of those users, you are probably wondering how to update feels like. The good news is that you have a chance to try it out even before Oreo rolls out to your device.

Android beta

If you really want to get Android Oreo on your phone, the best alternative available at the moment is Google’s Android Beta Program. Here testers try out Android updates before anyone else, and they are the ones that provide feedback on it so that the company is able to fix any possible errors.

If you wish to enroll in the Android Beta Program you can do that easily by going to and signing in your Google account, After you have done that scroll down until you find “Eligible devices.” Find the device that you own and wish to enroll to the programme and click the green button that says “Enroll device”.

Agree with the terms and conditions and then tap “Join beta”. You will also be advised to back up all your data since it may be the case that you cannot revert back to a public Android version without deleting all your data. Finally you will see a message that tells you that your device is enrolled.
