Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners will soon receive a “sneak peek” into Android 7.0 features for the devices. The company is letting users experience the update before the official launch with its Galaxy Beta Program. Starting Nov. 9, the company has opened up the beta to users in the U.S., U.K. and South Korea, while Chinese users will be able to access it soon, according to the company's official press release Thursday.
Applicants to the program will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Throughout the period of the program, users will be able to experience the Samsung UX and provide feedback on performance, reliability and usability of the update.
“Users’ responses will in turn help Samsung develop reliable, high-performing software and provide an improved and optimized experience to all Galaxy users,” the company said.
Users will need an active Samsung account and meet program requirements by downloading the Galaxy Beta program using the Galaxy Apps or the Samsung Members app, depending on their country of residence. The program will not be available for the S7 Edge Olympic Games Edition or the S7 Edge Injustice Edition.
Samsung had introduced its first Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S6 device last year.
