Samsung customers with a Galaxy S10 will now be able to join the One UI beta program and try out Android 10 ahead of a wider release.
Some of the key features include a clean, more minimal user interface where notifications can pop into what you’re doing while taking less space, so you get what you need without disrupting you when you don’t. Another new feature is the dark mode coming to other areas of the OS, including the lock screen. A parallel function called smart lock brings smart text colours to the lock screen, so white text won’t be displayed on a light background making it hard to read.
Samsung’s focus Mode will allow users to pause apps temporarily when they need to minimise distractions and focus on getting the job done. There’s also the Device Care menu which will help users to manage their storage space, installed apps and other things which can slow their smartphones down.
To participate in the One UI beta for Samsung Galaxy S10, users need to create a Samsung Account (which can be done online at https://account.samsung.com). Once done, download the “Samsung Members” application from the Galaxy Apps tool or via the Google Play Store.
