It looks like Samsung is now working on Oreo update for its range of smartphones. While the South Korean giant has been quite slow in bringing the updates, it is gradually working on it.
Having said that, the company is now reportedly updating some of its apps with support for Android 8.0 Oreo. Ths is good news for the Samsung device owners and it is also an indication that these apps will easily work with Android 8.0 Oreo OS once it's rolled out for all users.
It also seems that Samsung is getting ready to roll out the firmware update as well. A lot of time has already passed since Google announced the new OS for Android devices.
As such, Samsung has just released a new update for Samsung Music and what's interesting here is that the app gets support for Android 8.0 Oreo. The Samsung Music update weighs in at just over 26MB. The update moves the version number to 16.2.08.22.
In addition to Android 8.0 Oreo support, Samsung Music update adds an alphabet scroll index, shuffle play and brings the ability to turn off the edge light on supported models as reported by SamMobile.
The update is rolling out now via Galaxy Apps which means users can download it right away.
Meanwhile, looking at the history of updated apps, Samsung rolled out Oreo support for Samsung Pay first. Then it was Smart Switch app about two months ago. Quite surprisingly, the update came even before the Android 8.0 Oreo open beta program was announced for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
The next app to get the update around the same time as Smart Switch app was Samsung Connect and this app also received support for Oreo and further came with a new Dashboard as well as several improvements and additions to the Condition/Action features for the Automation functionality.
Samsung also updated its VR app recently with support for Oreo as well as Samsung's new Galaxy A8 (2018) series handsets.
While all the apps are getting support for Oreo, the company has not yet given any word about when it's going to release Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to the public.
