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

I got the update on my 9+ after signing up for the beta program. Right now it has a ton of bugs. I had to rollback to 8.0 and opted out.

Of course it has bugs, that's the whole point of the beta program, so they can be reported

I know the would be bugs but the were just so many that it made using my phone a headache. There was this one that really bothered me where the phone would go into lock if I hadn't touched it for five minutes with no way to turn it off so whenever I'd sit on the bus or at break trying to watch something on Netflix the screen would go to sleep. I tried turning it off, switching to stay awake changed the timeout to 30 min snd even tried no swipe in the security menu but that screen would always come on. The icons also look terrible some apps were no longer compatible, fingerprint sensor wasn't recognized, samsung and Googlepay no longer worked. My macros would only run until the screen locked after 10 minutes and there's a few more things I can't think of at the top of my head. It's definitely the worst beta release I've had from android.

Its not from Android.... its from Samsung developers in south korea... they are not bothered if you think its the worst beta... they just need to know the bugs

I agree they're not bothered most companies that make billions of dollars could care less what I think. I'm just putting my experience with it for those that aren't sure if they should rush into doing the beta program. When I said it's the worst beta I should've been clearer in saying that in my opinion 9.0 is looking like it's going to be one the worst releases. There are some nice things about it but there's a lot I'm hoping doesn't make it to final release.
