One UI Beta Program

Hello, i have contacted Samsung Support, but they redirected me to Developer Support, so I am writing here.

I’m very interested to participate in One UI 4 Beta Program (my device – G991U1), but it’s unavailable in my country (Uzbekistan). I already installed Beta 1 myself by downloading firmware zip (http://fota-secure-dn.ospserver.net/firmware/VZW/SM-G991U1/nspx/6556537300b7401998e7cecc78bbdf58.bin?px-time=61907a56&px-hash=a05de87504b0032df4c4262041550167&px-wid=5820367-WSA210915025413&px-wctime=2021-09-15%2002:54:13&px-unum=&px-nb=UGtezEZ854jbmFcvWGxLEA==), but now i can’t find link for Beta 2. So I ask you please to register me in Program or provide link for Beta 2 zip file.

The only way I am aware of for Beta Testing One UI is from the Samsung Members app. If it isn’t in your country or available from your service provider maybe you can get it via a prepaid SIM card for a different country. But it is iffy since not all service providers are doing One UI beta testing.

Good morning, I’m interested to One UI Beta Program in Italy, do you plan to include this country in the testing phase? There are many native apps developed in Italy, I think testing new One UI before the official release would be very helpful.

The information on One UI Beta testing is on THIS PAGE it is not supported by all service providers so it may not be available to you.

Hallo Ron, what do you mean by service providers? Do you mean Italian phone carriers or somebody else?
Why is the service providers a “country” issue for Beta testing?

Probably because the service providers are the ones who decide what software versions you get. They decide the release dates for Android updates, security updates, etc.
