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+)

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.

 

To return to official stock firmware, follow these steps: (This will factory reset your device)

  1. Download and install Samsung SmartSwitch for PC or Mac (https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/app/smart-switch/)
  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
  4. Under your device details, you should see a downgrade button and a message that says "You can go back to a previous version of software." Click downgrade and follow the prompts.SmartSwitch software downgrade optionSmartSwitch software downgrade option

If you clicked to enroll on the banner did you go to Software Update and click to check for updates?

The Beta should be avialable there.

Yes. I went to Software Update and still don't see the update. I am still on the software version N986U1UES1ATJ3, which came in the middle of the month after the October 1st patch.

LongHiker I have been waiting and looking forward to the beta for weeks now! I go to bed at 9 PM at night because I have to be up early the next day to work a 10-12 hour shift. Last night I checked my phone for the beta banner just before going to sleep. Apparently I missed the window since it was dropped while I was asleep..... If there had been a notice on when it was going to be released I would have set an alarm and got up to register. Is there another way or another time they will release the beta? I am new to Samsung and appreciate any feedback. Thank you

Samsung announced that their closed beta is ending tonight, hence why it began on Oct. 22nd and they've already deleted all of their forum posts regarding the sign up.
