Q: I still haven't received it, how can I get it?
A: Just wait.
If you're impatient, go to Settings -> Apps, enable showing of System Apps, find Google Services Frameworks, stop them, clear its data, check for updates. If you use this option you must factory reset your phone after update.

Q: What's the current build number?
A: As of January 13, 2018, the current build is OPR1.170623.026.8.1.10. Security patch level: January 1, 2018. Kernel version: 3.18.66-perf-g5c453c8 builder@mi-server #1 Wed Jan 10 14:49:20 WIB 2018

Q: Does Picture in picture mode work?
A: It does but only a few apps currently support it: e.g. VLC (it must(!) be enabled first in VLC settings), Google Chrome (for desktop mode), YouTube (YouTube red subscription is required), Google Maps (only in navigation mode) and WhatsApp (during a video call).

Q: What are the known bugs?
A: Check this topic.

Q: Where can I get a firmware image to flash offline (fastboot ROM)?
A: Check this page for updates.

Q: Are there EIS or Camera2API? Has low light camera performance been improved?
A: Sadly, both are still missing and low light camera performance is still horrible.

Q: I've heard about Quick Charge in Oreo, is it indeed present?
A: No, this has been verified by many people, some of whom used multimeters.

Q: What about the Google Phone (dialer) and Google Messages apps?
A: They are now both stock straight from Google.

Q: Can I use/install Google Camera with HDR+?
A: No. (Yes, if you're willing to root your phone and enable EIS/Camera2API).

Q: How can I hide the X mark for mobile networks?
A: You can disable WiFi or you can install a substratum theme, "Hide X".

Q: My favourite app or game crashes under Oreo.
A: Factory reset your phone, install just this game/app - check if it crashes. If it does, contact its developer. If it doesn't then some other app or your settings have broken the app/game.



Old FAQ:

Q: When Android 8 (Oreo) for Xiaomi Mi A1 is going to get released?
A: No one except Xiaomi employees knows and they don't frequent these forums. Most likely in January 2018. It was released on December 31, 2017.

Q: Can I still participate in a beta program?

A: The enrollment ended on December, 11th, 2017. If you applied before that date and were not chosen, now you cannot.

Q: When does the beta testing begin?
A: It began on December 13th, 2017.

Q: Why wasn't I selected as a beta tester?
A: Less than a hundred people were selected and based on what's known, the selection process was truly random.

Q: What's currently known about Android 8.0 Oreo for Xiaomi Mi A1?

A: Read this thread.

Q: Can I make suggestions?

A: You can, but only beta testers have a voice.

I made an educated guess. They started a beta testing phase just a few days ago and considering that Android is a very complicated OS to port to a particular device, it becomes obvious that 12 work days in this year seem not to be enough to complete the beta testing and release a stable version.

Again I might be wrong and even if I am that doesn't change the fact that Xiaomi could have released Mi A1 with Oreo from the get go and they are terribly late with it (at least half a dozen of non-Google devices already run Oreo).

It suppose to be before December 21, 2017. If it's after then Xiaomi broke their promise.

There are zero "invented" things here aside from the release date which is a guesstimate.
