I have a Galaxy S20+ 5G and I live in the UK but I don't seem to be able to join the beta program. 


My phone is unlocked/unbranded by network. 

Could anyone shed any light on why I'm unable to join or download the beta?

Thank you for your response. unfortunately I have done all of this already. I'm familiar with this as I had to do the same when the beta was released for the S9 series a couple of years ago - never had a problem then.

I'm just totally confused as to why I still cannot join the beta 😔

Thanks for your help though!

I joined the beta program and nothing, then I backed up my phone using the Samsung switch pc software, and then tried it again , and then the beta android 11 firmware came up, .
I used it a few times on my Samsung s20 ultra but there were to many issues, so I used Samsung switch to downgrade my phone back to android 10.

if your downgrading, mske sure you cancel and withdraw from beta program or you'll keep getting android 11 download, once you withdraw from beta , you'll see on Samsung switch that it can then downgrade you.

To be eligible for Beta firmware you must fulfil the following criteria...

 

1. Be in a participating country (U.K. is one)

 

2. Have a an S20 device (not S20 FE)

 

3. Be on a non carrier branded firmware (In the U.K. this is CSC code BTU)

 

4. Have signed up for Beta firmware in the Samsung Members app (Sign-up will only be shown if you meet the above criteria)

 

To check if you are running non carrier branded, stock, Samsung firmware with CSC code BTU, go to...

 

Settings > About phone > Software information > Service provider software version... check your CSC code as per screenshot...
