Last week, Samsung released the One UI 5.0 beta update to the Galaxy S21 series in India, South Korea, and the UK. Now, the update is being expanded to the US, and Samsung has officially announced the One UI 5.0 Beta Program for the Galaxy S21 series in the country.

The Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta update is now available for unlocked variants of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra in the US. If you want to participate in the beta program, you need to download and install the Samsung Members app, log into the app using your Samsung account, click the Galaxy S21 One UI 5.0 Beta Program banner on the app's home page, and then enroll your device.

Once you are done registering yourself in the One UI 5.0 Beta Program, you can check for the new software update after 10 minutes. Samsung could open the beta program to the Galaxy S21 series in more markets within the next few weeks. The One UI 5.0 beta update rolling out to the Galaxy S21 series in the US is a newer build than the one that was released in India last week. Maybe Samsung will call it One UI 5.0 Beta 2 in some markets.
