Slots for Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie beta program are still available!

It has been three days or so since Samsung started the Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie beta program in Germany, India, and the US, but it seems like people aren’t in a rush to try it out. It’s not completely surprising, as most people wouldn’t want to install beta software on their only smartphone. But if you have a Galaxy Note 9 and have been wondering if you can still register, then you are in luck.

Galaxy Note 9 Pie beta slots not filled up just yet

We have tried on German and Indian models of the Galaxy Note 9, and the option to register for the beta program still works. It’s possible a few slots were freed up because of some users opting out of the beta, or maybe it’s just the fact that people aren’t too interested in major updates anymore. In any case, Galaxy Note 9 owners in India and Germany can still access the beta program. If you have a Note 9 and live stateside, feel free to check the Samsung+ app and let us know if registration is still possible in the US.

To register for the Android Pie and One UI beta program, open the Samsung Members app on your Note 9, go into the Notices section, tap the notice about the Galaxy Note 9 Pie beta program, then tap on the banner that shows up on the screen. Then, tap the Registration/Register button at the bottom of the screen and accept the terms and conditions to get into the program. You can then download the Pie beta by hitting the Download updates manually option in the Software update menu of the phone’s settings.

Have you managed to register for the Galaxy Note 9 beta program?

Of course there slots available. Most people get it through carriers. 😂

Exactly! Always down to beta test these things. So they just need to push them to carrier models as well.

Who said they are limited? Yesterday my girlfriend joined beta on S9+ in the 2nd phase in UK, last year she joined after 3rd update. It’s up to user when he join the program.

And what’s the relation with this discussion?

Nothing. But is it strange that Samsung updated 5 years old phone in 2018.

Meanwhile Samsung released new update for Note 4 N910CXXS2DRK3 (01.11.2018) and for Core Prime G360FXXS1BRK1 (06.11.2018), and I don’t see news about this.

It is surprise. Old phones don’t get updates.

I installed it and I can say that there are many clever solutions, and although beta still works very well. There are tiny bugs that can be used for that. Hello from Hungary.

Okay, how about pushing it to the carrier models of the note 9 then? Loads of people are wanting to beta test. Still no registration notice on the Sprint model.

Agreed. There are more people on carriers that it would make sense to want to test the phones with those carriers too. I’m always down to be a beta tester for anything, but it sucks when there’s restrictions that don’t allow me to do ti.

I flashed the unlocked firmware to my phone from Sprint carrier. I got tired of waiting.

How did you manage that? Did it require root?

No I just Odin the unlocked firmware to my phone. TBH I thought I would brick it since I haven’t done that kind of stuff in quite a few years. But it worked. Look for xda unlocked firmware and download Odin on your computer.
