Xiaomi seeks beta testers for Mi A1 Android Oreo update

07 December, 2017, 09:30 | Author: Sammy Rose

And those selected for the test will be announced on the MIUI global forum. Unlike the Mi 6 Android Oreo beta program announced a few days ago as a China-exclusive affair, the Mi A1 beta test is open to users from all parts of the world, with applicants only being required to speak English and use QQ to communicate with the company. Launched back in September, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is now ready for Android 8.0 Oreo Beta update, and testers are needed for the same. You can follow the instruction given on Miui official site to take part in Android 8.0 Oreo beta test programme. Once downloaded, go to the "Recruitment" section on the app's homepage. A handy little reminder that this ROM isn't stable is included at the end.

Xiaomi's usage of stock Android also suggested that the handset would see fast updates, even though the manufacturer typically lags behind other OEMs when it comes to major Android version rollouts.

Xiaomi phones usually have great hardware, but less than impressive software.
