How to install Samsung’s One UI 5 beta on your Galaxy device

Since the release of developer previews and beta versions of Android 13, we’re excited to get our hands on Samsung’s One UI version of Android 13. Now the One UI 5.0 beta is available to the public. This guide explains how to sign up for it and install it on your device.

Over the past couple of years, Samsung has really stepped up its game when it comes to stocking Android and delivering its One UI variant in an incredible time. Overall, Samsung keeps much of the same functionality we see in Android and changes some features here and there to reflect the feel of a Galaxy device. Samsung has done a fantastic job of redelivering Android in a package that is easy to use and performs very well.

Now Samsung is ready to release the One UI 5 beta for those who want to try it before the official release comes. As always, we don’t explicitly recommend installing a beta version on your everyday device as an unknown number of issues could crop up and cause problems for you. That said, if you want to sign up for and install Samsung’s One UI 5 beta, it’s really easy.

Sign up and install the One UI 5 beta

Samsung makes it incredibly easy to install a beta version of One UI, giving you the tools you need through the Samsung Members app from the Galaxy Store. That app must be installed and you must log in with your Samsung account. Once you do that, follow these steps:

  1. In the Samsung Members App, swipe the top banner and find the card that reads One UI beta program. Tap it.
  2. Tap Register.
  3. Agree to the terms stated by taping Sign up and then Agree.
    • Remark: A pop-up may appear to let you know that you are enrolled.
  4. Go to the settings via swipe down once and tap the gear settings.
  5. Scroll down and tap Software update.
  6. Tap Download and install.
  7. Your device will start downloading One UI 5 beta.

Once you start the installation of One UI 5 beta, your Galaxy device will go through the installation process. This can take 5 to 15 minutes. Your Samsung device will be unusable for a while and then boot up with an optimization period that follows. Once your phone is done with the update, you should be ready to explore the all new One UI 5 beta based on Android 13.
