I have a Samsung S8 from EE.
I am awaiting the update for S8 so I can install the Google Daydream app that is now compatible with my phone.
I have spoken to Samsung UK and given them my phone details but according to them the update is dependent on EE.
Can I please find out when my phone will receive the build NRD90M.G950USQU1AQG4?
I will appreciate any help.

@Mada Any updates will be pushed out when EE are happy with the software that Samsung is making for them. Your device will notify you when any updates are ready to be installed.

Thanks for the reply Chris.
Samsung UK have informed me that they have in fact already sent the software to EE some time ago.
My question is more to do with the timeframe from EE. Any way of figuring out how long they intend to take?
Seems a bit unfair because had I bought the phone from Samsung or for that matter from the other mobile network providers, I would not have had to wait this long for the update. Not that a few days matter but it has been two weeks since the official release from Samsung.

As far as I can tell using Sammobile. No network has released the update for daydream yet.

Thanks for the reply Brendon.
I just checked Sammobile myself and I stand corrected regarding updates from other mobile network providers for S8. Having said so, my initial question regarding timeframe of update from EE remains. Are there any official moderators for this forum from EE? Or am I better off giving EE a call?

@Mada You asking EE to commit to a date and unfortunately EE will not do that. Your asking EE to inform other networks when they will push this out.

Thanks for the reply Chris.
I am not sure what this has to do with other networks?
I frankly do not see what the big issue is with EE informing their cutomer of the release date.

Hi @Mada My s8 plus had a software update over the air the other day from Ee with build
NRD90M.G955FXXU1AAQG5 this is not shown on sammobile yet but this is the latest one even that the sim free BTU is running have you tried a manual check for updates as that’s what I did

Does that mean that the Daydream update has happened?
Does anyone have daydream running on ee?
I'm about to upgrade a phone but I need daydream for work. However if EE still haven't done this I'll have to go elsewhere..

EE has an update 10 days ago on the S8.
BTU firmware last updated on 30th July. EE has newer firmware than BTU. Not sure if ay fo these have Day Dream though.

So have you managed to install Daydream from the play store on the S8? If anyone manages can they post a "yes"? Thanks

Has anyone got daydream running yet on an EE Samsung S8? Has the update happened?
EE Customer service couldn't answer this when I contacted them.
