Back in August, Samsung started the One UI 3.0 developer beta program for the Galaxy S20 series. Later on, in South Korea , the United States, Germany, and earlier today, the United Kingdom, the company began to deliver public beta builds of its Android 11-based custom applications to Galaxy S20 users. Although the stable version of the update has yet to arrive on any of these computers, the company is now recruiting testers for the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra public beta program One UI 3.0 in the U.S.
To try the One UI 3.0 beta, you’ll need a Sprint, T-Mobile, or unlocked Galaxy Note 20 edition. As before, in the Samsung Members app, you’ll have to sign up via a banner. The company warns that it is “speeding up” to have a more stable release as we write this, so if stability (for a beta, anyway) is important to you, you may want to be patient.
As well as functional functionality, the beta release adds several interface tweaks. Some of them come straight from Android 11, such as a dedicated chat segment in the shade of your notification. You’ll even see Samsung’s web browser refinements, home and lock screens, and even contacts.
