Android 13 / One UI 5.0 Beta Test for Samsung S21 / Ultra India Edition

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series for Indian users have joined the One UI 5.0 Beta beta program. Samsung customers with a Galaxy S21, S21+, or S21 Ultra in India can now sign up for the One UI 5.0 beta program for a chance to test the upcoming firmware.

The Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta program is available for unlocked Galaxy S21 series models, and the pre-release firmware (once available) comes with some caveats. First, beta software will have some common bugs. Next, Galaxy S21 users in India should back up their data before applying to join the beta program to avoid losing anything of value. Finally, some apps and features may not work properly, and Google Pay is one of them.

Android 13 and One UI 5.0 are full of small UI changes and additions, including enhanced palette options, stacked widgets, new gestures for multiple views and pop-ups, and more emojis, AR emoji, and a slightly redesigned notification and quick toggle area.

Samsung DeX, My Files app, and other improvements - now with better Search, Digital Wellbeing, Samsung Keyboard, and Camera apps. The latter has some UI improvements that allow users to access different modes and use the zoom feature more easily.

Bixby Routines also has more actions and conditions. Samsung's built-in IFTTT app is also smarter in One UI 5.0, suggesting new actions based on user habits.

Previously, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series entered the One UI 5.0 testing phase in South Korea and the UK.
