Not long ago, we heard about the debut of the Nougat beta program for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the UK. Now, the time has arrived for its debut and, according to Samsung, these flagships in the US get access to the program at the same time as their siblings in the UK.

According to the official Galaxy Beta Program page, the devices compatible should be on Sprint, Verizon Wireless, or T-Mobile. The test period begins today and is expected to last until the end of December. Unfortunately, owners of the unlocked versions will not be able to enter the program and, as far as we know, neither will those on AT&T. At last, those using the limited edition Olympic or Batman Injustice handsets cannot test the Android Nougat beta builds, either.

Those who want to enter the program need to download the Galaxy Beta Program app and then submit their application via the Registration menu. Unfortunately, there is no word on how many can enter this program.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
