Xiaomi Mi A1 Android 8.0 Oreo Beta Update Needs Testers, Says Company


  • All Mi A1 users are eligible to apply for the program
  • Active users on the MIUI Global Forum will be selected for testing
  • Xiaomi warns that this will not be a stable build

Xiaomi is now inviting applications from beta testers for the Android 8.0 Oreo update that will roll out soon on the Xiaomi Mi A1. The announcement, posted on the official MIUI website, invited beta testers to test out stock Android on the Mi A1. This comes as great news for people who purchased the phone as Xiaomi had promised an Oreo update by the end of the year.

The application states that all Mi A1 users are eligible to apply and only the device’s IMEI number is to be provided for the application. All submitted IMEI numbers will not be revealed publicly. If you use a Mi A1, you can check your IMEI by dialling *#06# on the phone’s dialler.

You also need to have the MIUI Global Forum app installed on the device. On the homepage of the app, select Recruitment. Fill out your information as stated. Click the Submit button. Xiaomi will send selected members a Forum PM for confirmation.

The deadline for the application is 11:59pm CST (9:30pm IST) on December 11, 2017 (Beijing Time) and is valid for all regions but has a mandatory communication language of English. Xiaomi states that the applicant must ideally have an interest to test betas and some knowledge about ROMs. They should also be active on the MIUI Global Forum and willing to discuss with other members in both QQ group and forum. Once selected, the beta testers are required to share bug reports on time. They are also required to discuss and answer queries on the forum.

A standard disclaimer states that this is not a stable ROM, so expect bugs with the ROM and think twice before you apply for it. Also, bugs need time to fix and developers are not expected to rush to resolve issues.
