Following the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the LG V30, Verizon and Samsung are now pushing the software to both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. This comes after Samsung initially paused the rollout of Oreo for the S8 and S8 Plus in the US due to instabilities and bugs that needed to be worked out.
We received the update notification on our device which we’re currently installing.
With Oreo on the S8 and S8 Plus, you get access to features such as picture-in-picture, autofill, improved speed, better battery life, enhanced security, a new UI called Samsung Experience 9.0, App Shortcuts, and more. You can learn more about the update in our Galaxy S8 re-review.
I recommend installing the Oreo update on your S8 over Wi-Fi as the package is pretty big and takes a long time to download. That being said, it’s come to our attention that not everyone is seeing the update yet so let us know if you even get the notification in the comments.
