In order to install that leaked test Oreo build on your Galaxy Note 8, you must be on the latest build which is N950USQS2BQK2.

For users on DP2 to 8.1 final, the best option is to wait for the Android 8.1 OTA, which will take DP2 users to the final build. There are no doubt numerous other bugs waiting to be discovered too, as the build is displaying a little bit of (to quote one redditor) "wonkiness".

Those who do decide to try the leak out on their device are encouraged to backup all important files just in case something goes wrong during the transition. "In Android 8.1, you'll be able to see the network name (SSID) and directly connect to the network-all within the notification".

The new feature is one of many useful additions within Android 8.1. The Note 8 was, surprisingly, snubbed, though, with no actual information as to when users of the plus-sized flagship would get updates. The giant has released two beta editions of its Android 8.1 update with Android 8.1 Developer Preview 1 and Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2 for Pixel and Nexus devices. Now, it is official that the Android 8.1 has just escaped from the Beta version, and the manufacturers are expected to work on the newer version if they do care. So for example, Google defines Slow as the ability to make calls or send texts and that's about it.
