Get Familiar with Android 8.0
Now that the final release is here, now would be a good time to start getting familiar with all of the changes on board Android 8.0 and Samsung's Experience UI.
We always recommend getting acquainted with an update (particularly when it's a brand new operating system) ahead of time so that you aren't caught off guard by any of the changes.
Android 8.0 is a massive upgrade for the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy S8 Active. The interface looks different than Android Nougat, and some of the changes could impact how you use your device so you'll want to be as ready as possible.
The best way to get familiar with the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update is by using it on your phone. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Android Oreo leak is free and it's available to anyone with a Snapdragon-powered device.

Samsung's also updated its Galaxy S8 User Manual to reflect the Android Oreo upgrade. The company's also pushed an Oreo tips guide to its Samsung Members (also known as Samsung+) application.
The company's version of Oreo is currently based on Android 8.0, but there's a chance the company adopts Google's new Android 8.1 Oreo update down the road.
Google's latest version of Android is Android 8.1, a maintenance release that delivers new features, enhancements and fixes to its stable of Nexus and Pixel devices.
Samsung is working off of Android 8.0, but we could see the company release Android 8.1 or, at the very least, roll out Android 8.1's changes inside new Android 8.0 builds.
