If you are an owner of Nokia 8 and interested to join the beta labs, you’ll have to hit up this link, register for an account, once you sign up and validate your device by IMEI number, you will get the beta software OTA. If you decide to not receive beta updates, you can registered your device from the program, which will kick your device back to the public release channel.
Notably the beta tester will be the first to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update when it will be rolled out officially.
