When Android Marshmallow came out a year ago, Samsung offered the Marshmallow beta program for its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users. Months after the official release on Android 7.0, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now being offered the Android Nougat Beta testing.

The Android 7.0 Beta testing has started in the United Kingdom a few days ago, but the Galaxy Beta Program app was then pulled from the Google Play Store. The latest reports suggest that the Galaxy Beta Program for Android Nougat will not only allow the users to get the latest version of Android.

Moreover, the program will help Samsung get the feedback needed to improve performance, stability, and usability of the devices. Android Nougat Beta testing for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will begin once you register for the Galaxy Beta Program.

However, just registering for the update won’t be enough to get Android Nougat, you will need to be selected by Samsung as well. The company also reported that the limited edition Galaxy S7 Edge Olympic Edition and Batman Injustice Edition devices are not eligible for the Android Nougat Beta testing.

The Galaxy Beta Program will be open for users in the United States, South Korea, United Kingdom, and China. Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile will be the supported carriers that are eligible for the beta update program. Android Nougat beta testing is expected to be available for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in these regions by November 9.
