Last updated: September 22nd, 2023 at 15:37 UTC+02:00

Samsung's work on the Android 14 and One UI 6.0 update for the Galaxy S23 series seems to be progressing very quickly, as the company has now released the fourth One UI 6 beta update for the Galaxy S23, S23+, and S23 Ultra, following the release of the third beta a week ago and a hotfix for that third beta release just three days back.

The fourth One UI 6 beta, the firmware version for which ends in ZWIC, has debuted in the USA but will likely be released in other markets later today, though in some countries this will be the third beta as they didn't join the beta program on day one. It's a 1GB download over the air and, in addition to fixing some bugs, it comes bundled with the October 2023 security patch.

For those wondering, this release won't be the final beta update for the Galaxy S23 lineup, as the changelog says there are still a couple of known issues that haven't been fixed, such as a missing Motion photo feature and the phone getting stuck in a reboot loop when entering Maintenance mode.

As for the bugs that have been addressed, Samsung says picking up calls using the “answer the phone” voice command now works as intended and Google Assistant should show up if you are using navigation gestures and swipe up from the bottom. There's also a fix for login issues that were present in the Samsung Pass app, and “many other improvements”.

As usual, you can download the new beta update by opening the Settings app on your phone, going into the Software update menu, and tapping Download and install.
