Samsung announced the date for released Android Pie beta and it went live according to the schedule. Germany was also included in the list of countries approved for beta release but it didn’t get the beta program on Nov 15. The amazing Samsung’s customer service agents didn’t know what was going on which added further to the confusion.
The wait is finally over. The Samsung One UI (Android Pie) beta is live in Germany now. Owners of Galaxy S9 and S9+ can sign up for it from the Samsung Members app. Slots are limited and served on first come first sever basis. Once you are registered, you will be able to download the update form the Software update menu in the settings.
Other than Germany, the United States and South Korea are the countries receiving the One UI in the first phase. When the beta was rolled in on 15 Nov, it was expected that all three countries will get the update together but somehow, Germany got it few days after US and South Korea received the update.
Samsung hasn’t said anything to explain the delay but at least it has confirmed that beta is now available in Germany. The second phase that include UK will start from November 20. Apart from UK, china, Poland, Spain, France and India are more likely to have the One UI beta program. If you want to update to One UI please remember that there won’t be any possibility to go back to Android Oreo without a data wipe.
