    The Android Oreo update draws ever closer with finally beginning to roll out this blockbuster upgrade.

    Oreo was due to start arriving on devices earlier

    this month but a bug stalled that release meaning Galaxy owners are only just seeing this upgrade arrive on their devices.

    It's thought an official European launch will begin very soon, although anyone owning a Galaxy S8 on contract may have to wait to until the networks fully test Oreo before they release it to consumers.

    If you have spotted Oreo in your S8's updates, Samsung is recommending that you back up your important data to keep it safe during the upgrade.

    And if you're ready to go here’s what’s new.

    Biometrics

    To improve your security, features that use biometrics (face, fingerprints, and irises) are only available when you use a secure screen lock type (pattern, PIN, or password).

    When you switch to a non-secure screen lock type (Swipe or None), biometric authentication is suspended for unlocking and for verification in apps like Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass.

    If you're using biometrics now without a secure screen lock type, you'll be able to continue after the upgrade, but changing to a secure screen lock type is recommended.

    Quick Panel

    • Manage notifications for each app with notification categories (supported apps only).

    • Icons will be shown at the bottom of the notification panel for notifications that aren't currently visible.
