Mobile announces upcoming Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy Note 8

The Verge

It's also not surprising that Samsung is working on slowly bringing some of that functionality to older devices through updates, and one such Galaxy S9 feature is making its way to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 today.

We'll update this post shortly! Finally, although youre setting a looping GIF to be the face of your Always on Display, it will only animate once: as soon as you lock the display. That's changing with the latest update to AOD, so Galaxy S8 and Note 8 owners can now see their favorite GIFs when the phone is sitting idle. It remains to be seen if T-Mobile and Sprint will decide to step up their release schedule as well to match their larger rivals, or allow more time for testing before pushing Android Oreo out to customers. That would mean a 1GB+ file, Android 8.0, and Samsung Experience 9.0. The GIF also won't automatically loop; it just plays once when you turn the display off.

If an update is available, you'll be taken to a screen where you can read the changelog and decide whether you'd like to install the update right now, overnight or delay it further.
