If you own a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, we have some good news for you. The South Korean manufacturer has just begun the Android 7.0 Nougat beta testing for the handset, through the Galaxy Beta Program, currently available in the Galaxy UK store.
Currently, if you want to become a beta tester for Android Nougat and can’t find the app, you can follow our tutorial below and download it.
What is Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program?
Through this program, the user – after registering – can access a beta version of Android 7.0 Nougat and return feedback about performance, stability and usability. The manufacturer will use all this information to improve the software.
As mentioned above, the Galaxy Beta Program is now available just for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, but it should be available for way more devices, through mid-December.
How to Download Galaxy Beta Program app
Initially, the app was available in the Galaxy App Store, but apparently, it was removed. However, now is your chance to get it, using the link, allowing you to download the .apk and enroll for the Nougat beta program.
How to join Galaxy Beta Program
In order to join the program and be able to test the beta version of Android 7.0 Nougat, you need to follow these steps.
Step 1: Download the .apk, using the link above, and install it on your Galaxy S7 Edge.
Step 2: If you don’t have a Samsung account, create one, by submitting a ‘Galaxy Beta Program’ application, using the Registration menu on top of the app.
Step 3: After completing the registration, go to Settings > Device information > Download update and click on the ‘Software Update’ menu, in order to start installing the update.
How you cancel your Galaxy Beta Program account
Finally, when Samsung will release the official Android 7.0 Nougat update, you will most likely want to use that version instead of the beta and eventually cancel the beta testing program.
In order to do this, enter the Galaxy Beta Program app menu and simply select “De-register”. After this, simply check for the official update and install it on your Galaxy S7 Edge.
