Howdy y'all, I hope you're all doing well.

 

If you're reading this, I think it's safe to say that your pretty darn excited for One UI 3 w/ Android 11! I'm so excited that we get to share the latest and greatest experience Samsung has to offer, together. With the One UI/Android 11 beta coming around the corner, I want to hear what excites you the most from One UI 3 and what you'd like to see. What features would you like added?

 

The contents of this post serve as and provide valuable information for users looking to participate in the beta. This post will be frequently updated as new information emerges.

Beta Information

Some things to keep in mind before signing up and installing the beta:

  • The main goal and purpose of the public beta is to gather feedback from users. When unexpected errors occur, please submit feedback via the One UI Beta app.
  • The beta firmware is exactly what it is, beta. This means that there may be some unexpected bugs and possibly not so good battery life.
  • Some apps might not function properly (if you rely on using banking apps, it might be wise to wait for the official update.)
  • Data loss may occur. It is recommended to backup your data. Samsung offers SmartSwitch on both Android and on PC/Mac. I'd highly recommend making a backup of your data before you install the beta.

Who's eligible for the One UI Beta?

  • Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra users on Sprint & T-Mobile
  • Unlocked users (U1 devices purchased directly from Samsung; Any carrier is supported on unlocked firmware.)

How do I un-register and leave the beta?

Sometimes beta software isn't for everyone and that's okay. It's quite easy to leave the beta and return to the official software version for your device.

To unregister from the beta, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Samsung Members app
  2. Press the Settings button located on the top right side of the screen
  3. Press the "One UI Beta Program status" button
  4. Press WITHDRAW at the bottom of the screen
  5. Follow the steps below to return to stock firmware.

  2. Open SmartSwitch on your PC or Mac
  3. Using the charging cable that came with your Galaxy device, plug your device in to your PC/Mac

Is there any way to join the Beta Program for the Note 20 Ultra. I am on T Mobile in USA with Note 20. I check for the banner in members app several times a day. Has never appeared. I also have an S 20 Ultra. Got the banner and easily enrolled and have the Beta 3 on that phone. How is this difference explained?

unfortunately, all the beta testing has come to an end. They only accept a certain amount of people and those slots have been taken. Now we have to wait for the public version.

So I'm in the One UI 3.0 Beta program, and when I open the Members app I see the splash screen with links to Feedback and Community. When I click either of them I get a message that either my phone or account is not enrolled in the beta program. I'm using the phone that originally enrolled, and I haven't changed my account... What gives? I'm having a pretty serious issue and I'd really like to talk to other community members to figure out if it's widespread or if I'm the only one.

Sorry, couldn't tell you. For me I just clicked on the banner at the top of the app. If it's not appearing for you, maybe they ended sign ups?
