    TL;DR: Blackberry moves its app beta community to a new site and announces by the way a Keyone Beta Program for Android Oreo.

    Howdy!
    Thank you for being a part of our beta programs in BlackBerry Beta Zone! This month, July, we are moving our beta testing effort to a new community hosted by beta program experts Centercode.
    We would love for you to continue beta testing early versions of apps and software with us in this new community. The new space has excellent new ways for you to share and organize your feedback and bug reports with other participants, so we can treat the highest-impact issues you find with the highest priority. If you're interested in continuing to test with us, please join us in our new community here:
    The new BlackBerry Beta community: https://bbbeta.centercode.com/
    We will be transitioning the Hub+ Suite & Apps program to our new community this month. Once you're signed up to the community, you'll be on our list to invite to new open programs. We're also happy to be starting an invitation-only beta program for Android Oreo on the BlackBerry KEYone. If you're a KEYone user, make sure to visit the new community and complete your profile to secure an invite.
    If you no longer wish to participate in BlackBerry beta programs, no action is needed on your part. We'll remove you from the beta testing groups as we move away from this Beta Zone community this month.
    Thank you, and I hope to see you in the new community!
    John & the BlackBerry Beta Team

    Well, that's definitely interesting. They are NOW announcing BETA for OREO seeming to throw the Rogers various announcements out the window.

    But I'm happy to hear that there's some movement toward Oreo, although it now seems to be further out.

    I signed up. I wonder what their turnaround time is to choose people and release the beta OS for testing.. It was announced today so guess sometime but, in BB10 there were lots of beta autoloaders out that let you upgrade your OS without waiting for your mobile or the beta program itself

    This means that we need to wait longer for the release which supposedly fix the WiFi issue.

    It's safe to say that people may not have secured WiFi connection on their KEYᵒⁿᵉ device for the better of 3 - 4 months now, and who knows how long that will continue.

    I'm wondering as well, but signed up anyway. I hope to be included, since I as well have been on the program for a long time.

    Also signed up. Got the email announcing the new site. It's more like setting up a new account as my password didn't work for the old beta program.

    Is that "Oreo on KEYᵒⁿᵉ" programme supposed to test the Hub+ Suite which is Oreo-enabled for a longer time, or the OS on that specific device (cause also K2 already has it)?

    Probably not really a beta program... more of an official report group.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they get it only a few days before everyone else... but being part of the beta program they'll have a way to report issues.

    Long time betazone tester but no email today about it. Guessing this means no chance of being in first wave of tests?

    What wi-fi issue? The one that has trouble staying connected to the 5 GHz band?

    That's not a security issue. If I recall, the 2.4 GHz band still works fine and has the same secure connection protocols.
