BlackBerry ends Android Oreo beta program for KEYone; public version of the OS coming soon
BlackBerry today announced that the Android Oreo beta program for the BlackBerry KEYone is over. Throughout October and November, the public version of the build will be pushed out to KEYone owners. BlackBerry says that files containing Android Oreo will be released by its partners through the Updates app. The BlackBerry KEYone was launched in April 2017 with Android 7.1 Nougat pre-installed.

BlackBerry also addressed the debug token that beta testers received in order to submit bug reports for the Oreo beta. The company is telling KEYone users that they can keep the tokens and continue to use them to submit bug reports for any future software update. The token is also useful if you are in the Apps beta program. The company will continue to monitor the queue for bug reports. You can disable diagnostics by going to Settings > System > Developer options > Log collection > Diagnostics settings > General settings, and toggle Capture to OFF.

BlackBerry says that it is taking another look at all submitted bug reports to make sure that it has taken care of everything discovered during the beta testing of Android Oreo. If you are having an issue with your KEYone, the company says to contact the support line for help.
