Does anyone know if Samsung are launching a beta program for Android pie? The early builds are out.

Yeh I dont want to risk missing out on more OTAs and I cba to roll back to 8 from 9 so I'll just wait for samsung to release the official beta.  No harm in waiting I guess

All who installed update.zip do not have the opportunity to participate in the Beta test. Yes, writes, Welcome to the Beta test, but when you try to enter or send a report on the Beta Test, it says you are not registered in the Beta Test and get the Server Error !! ONE UI is fine, BUT I rolled back to 8 and I will wait for the official test !!!

Good luck everyone...


We know that, but the app still does recognise that your not part of the beta so when it does go live I'd imagine you'd still get a notification/option to request and invite, time will tell I guess

Can you tell me how you can roll back as I tried to roll back and it would t let me

Battery life is a bit worse for me atm but going to see how it adapts over the next 48 hours or so. Don't want to roll back just for battery life at this stage, haven't found any other real issues and the overall experience is very good - way better than 8.x

To roll back you need to use Odin and a genuine firmware. You can download that with Sam firm

This beta being released is pie in the sky!
