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.

Samsung is now rolling out software versions G950FXXU4ZSB9 and G955FXXU4ZSB9 for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, respectively. These new builds fix a number of bugs, including the one which prevented NFC from working.

Issues like freezing of the phone after opening the recent apps screen and the keyboard appearing while dialing a number have also been fixed. Samsung has also addressed the error that occurred when a file is moved to external memory. You can read the complete list of bugs fixed in the changelog below.

Those on the Galaxy S8 beta program can download this latest release over-the-air by tapping Software update in the Settings app and selecting the Download and install option. The update weighs 470 MB.
