Registrations for Sony’s Nougat Beta Program Now Open to Xperia X Performance Users
There’s good news coming in for owners of the Sony Xperia X Performance, especially for those users that are always looking to try out new software. While Sony had cancelled off the Beta program earlier for the Xperia Z3, they had kept the program with a view to get it running for the Xperia X Performance.
Registrations for this Beta program are now open to users of the X Performance, and Sony is notifying users of the same through the Xperia Longe app. However, the registrations for the Beta program are open to users in select countries only, which includes the Nordics, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Netherlands. To register, you need to download the app from the Google Play Store and follow along the instructions in the app.
To clarify, this Beta program will let you try out Sony’s pre-release firmware of Android 7.0 Nougat. As the name implies, it is beta in nature. There will be bugs, and there’s likely to be expectations of feedback that Sony wishes to receive out of this, so that they can iron out issues before they can start rolling out stable release for the general public. Also to note, these are not builds for AOSP, but are Android 7.0 Nougat with Sony’s skin on top.
The Beta program will be available to limited users, so if you are interested, live in an eligible country and have the eligible device, head on over to the Play Store to download the app and register.
