A few weeks ago, Samsung finally rolled out the final version of its new Android version. OneUI 4.0 can currently be installed on the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 +, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. You can now install the beta version on the older Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 models. Exciting news, but one that you should be careful about.

Because beta versions are known to be unfinished. And so it is possible that you installed a few bugs and crashes on the older devices with OneUI 4.0. If you want to venture out onto the digital black ice, I will briefly tell you below how you can take part in the beta program. If you can be patient a little longer, you can see from our Android 12 update schedule for Samsung that the new operating system will be available on other devices in January.

This is how you take part in the beta program for Android 12

Before I send you to any Samsung app to participate in the beta program, you should definitely make a backup of your old data. While this is not that important with stable operating system updates, data loss is quite likely with betas. Once the update is finished, you can download the “Samsung Members” app. This is available for free in the Google Play Store, the only requirement is a Samsung account.

You will then find a button in the app to participate in the beta program. It may well be that this will only appear in Germany in a few hours or days. Because the announcement that Samsung is opening its beta program comes from the Indian colleagues at TizenHelp. If you were able to activate the button, the beta version of Android 12 can be installed at Samsung using the conventional update process.

Is the update to the beta version too unsafe for you? Then just have a look at our article with 20 pictures of OneUI 4.0 on a Samsung Galaxy S21 +!
