Fourth Android Pie beta for Galaxy S8 and S8+ released

Samsung today rolled out a new Android Pie beta update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. This is the fourth beta release for the devices, which were opened up for the beta program in mid-January. The latest build comes with fixes for a number of bugs that existed in the previous beta releases.

Earlier today, Samsung released the stable Android Pie update for the Note 8 in Bulgaria and Slovakia, following the fourth beta release earlier this week. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ should also be getting the stable update soon.
