If you're sick and exhausted of dealing with Android problems on your Galaxy S8 (or another device), and you've got a Galaxy S8 lying around, think about trying the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta. The Note 8 was, surprisingly, snubbed, though, with no actual information as to when users of the plus-sized flagship would get updates.
The Check for update button on Pixel and Nexus devices has in recent times become a redundant feature, which ends up annoying users who love to press it despite knowing that it doesn't really work.
The update will switch users back to the stable channel, which means that they will no longer be a part of the beta program, and won't have to first flash the device to Android 8.0 before upgrading to the regular 8.1 build.
During the launch period of its second and final update of Android 8.1 Developer Preview, we have claimed that the stable update can be released anytime by now.
The update also enabled HD Voice Calling on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on AT&T, this was not available previously on AT&T on these two handset.
Compare to the previous update i.e.
For users on DP2 to 8.1 final, the best option is to wait for the Android 8.1 OTA, which will take DP2 users to the final build. After weeks of waiting, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL finally have a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability alongside December's Android security patch.
While digging through the software, Android Police found new speed labels next to network IDs in the Wi-Fi settings. Those on builds ending with "QK2" should be able to download the 1.4 GB file to their MicroSDs, boot into recovery, and install the update without much hassle. That update caused incompatibility between the System Update code and the Checkin code.
