In a surprise move, Samsung has started rolling out the official Android Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners today. The update is currently available in Germany, and perhaps the best part is that both Android Pie beta testers and those who are on Android Oreo are getting the update. And, for beta users, the official update is a mere 158 MB download, so you should be able to quickly jump on-board to the stable release.

A small download for beta testers, as expected

To grab the update on your S9 or S9+, open the Settings app, tap Software update, then tap the Download and install option. It may take a couple of tries before the update starts downloading, so don’t lose hope if it doesn’t work on the first attempt. Those in beta markets other than Germany can try as well, although we currently have reports of only Germany having the official update. For Android Oreo users, we have the Galaxy S9 Android 9 Pie firmware available for download from our database.

Have you received the Android Pie update on your Galaxy S9 or S9+? Once you’ve updated, be sure to check out our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series of articles to find out what’s new with Android Pie.
