Android 8.0 Oreo beta software for the LG V30 and LG V30 Plus is now available to download in South Korea, introducing a slew of new features to the flagship devices. The update has a size of 1.2GB and includes some of Oreo’s top features, such as Picture-in-Picture mode, Adaptive Icons, and so on.
Earlier this month, LG kicked off the registration process for owners of the LG V30 devices in the country who wanted to take part in the beta program, which is set to run for one month before LG starts collecting feedback from beta testers.
The update is available to all LG V30 and V30 Plus owners who want to join regardless of their carriers, and the beta software can be accessed via the Quick Help application on the device that can be opened by going to the “LG OS Preview” section.
These features were recently announced in conjunction with the debut of the latest iteration of Google’s mobile operating system including the Picture-in-Picture mode for playing a video within a small window, auto-fill, smart text selection, Quick Settings design, parallel apps, notification dots, and the November 2017 security patch. That is in addition to other improvements to the device such as better performance and battery life, as well as faster boot times.
Other enhancements coming with the Android 8.0 Oreo beta software include the reduced impact of inactive applications on the battery as well as support for a vast selection of audio devices including wireless earphones. On the other hand, the LG G6 will probably have to wait a bit more for Android 8.0 as it features a different chipset.
