Xiaomi Taking Beta Testers for Mi 6 Android O Global Beta ROM, Redmi 5A/Note 5A For MIUI 9 Global ROM
Earlier this month, Xiaomi started the development of Android 8.0 Oreo for its premium smartphones. The company rolled out Oreo-based MIUI 9 ROM to select Mi 6 users. At that time, the program was limited to the Mi 6 users on MIUI China Alpha ROM. But now Xiaomi seems to be extending the update to the Mi 6 users all over the world. The Oreo-based MIUI 9 ROM will soon be available for global Mi 6 users.
On its MIUI forum, Xiaomi announced that it is currently taking tester for a closed Oreo beta for the Mi 6 smartphone users. The program is open to Mi 6 users in all the regions, but Xiaomi makes it clear that the device must be running the latest version of MIUI Global Developer ROM.
How to become a tester for Mi 6 Oreo beta:
If you own a Mi 6 and are willing to test Android O Global Beta ROM then here's how you can apply to become a beta tester.
Head to MIUI 9 Global Forum app on your Mi 6 and then click on the “Recruitment” tab. You will now see a form, wherein you will have to fill in details like your device's IMEI number, model, region, why do you want to become a tester, and how often do you use your device. After filling all the details, hit the send button.

The recruitment program for the beta tester will be open until December 26.
