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 Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra users on unlocked firmware
  • Unlocked users (U1 devices purchased directly from Samsung; Any carrier is supported on unlocked firmware.)

Current Beta versions:

  • ZTK9 (Public Beta 3)

Older Beta versions:

  • ZTK1 (Public Beta 2)
  • ZTJG (Public Beta 1)

 

Known Issues:

  1. Apps the rely on Safety Net will not be supported via Google Play Store. (Example: Google Pay, Netflix & Disney+)

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:

  3. Press the "One UI Beta Program status" button
  4. Press WITHDRAW at the bottom of the screen

  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

I do not have a date or time, please keep checking the Samsung Members app to look for the beta. The banner will also be in the benefits tab if present on your device.

I've been checking for several days and have not seen a banner for the beta. I have an Unlocked Note20Ultra (U1) but I have Verizon service. Correct me if I'm wrong but it should not matter what carrier I have as long as my phone is an Unlocked device with the model code ending in U1, bought outright from bestbuy, 100% not carrier locked, no carrier pre-installed apps etc. right??? please correct me if I'm wrong so I can stop hoping to get it and stop draining my battery checking this app 5-8 times a day lol

Hey Ryad why don't you say anything. Is Samsung lying to us? I don't care about One UI 3. All I need is the Android 11 beta. Samsung can keep their Bloatware.
