It’s Coming Soon a new Invite only program for Android Oreo.
With the exception of Canadian Rogers we have not heard of any dates for the arrival of Android Oreo for the Blackberry KEYone or Motion. Now BlackBerry has released a letter to its beta users that it will be starting a new beta program which will include beta testing of Oreo on the KEYone. Unfortunately, that program is by invitation only.
Android Oreo is already available on KEY2 devices, but it is probably still necessary to check for bugs and match the previous models of the KEYone.
Here is the letter that Blackberry published,
Thank you for being a part of our beta programs in BlackBerry Beta Zone! This month, July, we are moving our beta testing effort to a new community hosted by beta program experts Centercode. We would love for you to continue beta testing early versions of apps and software with us in this new community. The new space has excellent new ways for you to share and organize your feedback and bug reports with other participants, so we can treat the highest-impact issues you find with the highest priority. If you’re interested in continuing to test with us, please join us in our new community here:
The new BlackBerry Beta community: https://bbbeta.centercode.com/
We will be transitioning the Hub+ Suite & Apps program to our new community this month. Once you’re signed up to the community, you’ll be on our list to invite to new open programs. We’re also happy to be starting an invitation-only beta program for Android Oreo on the BlackBerry KEYone. If you’re a KEYone user, make sure to visit the new community and complete your profile to secure an invite.
If you no longer wish to participate in BlackBerry beta programs, no action is needed on your part. We’ll remove you from the beta testing groups as we move away from this Beta Zone community this month.
Thank you, and I hope to see you in the new community!
John & the BlackBerry Beta Team
