How to Get Nokia 6 Android Oreo Beta update?

Well, the procedure it simple. All Nokia 6 users have to do is go to Nokia’s beta labs website (link). Do the mandatory signup using their device’s IMEI number which you can access by dialling *#06#. Once you complete the registration process, you will have to wait for few hours (approx. 12 hours).

Post that, you will get an upgrade notification or else you can manually check by going to Settings>>phones>>system updates. Before you go ahead and do upgrade your Nokia 6 to Oreo beta version we would like to caution you that it might be unstable in nature and it’s better that you wait till a stable release is out before installing it on your primary device.

Android 8.0 Oreo is the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system which comes with few improvements such as faster boot time, autofill framework, picture-in-picture, Instant Apps etc.
