Don't Install If You Haven't Prepared
Don't install the Android Pie beta on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ if you haven't prepared.
While you might be tempted to jump right in with the beta, this isn't smart. This is pre-release software and it could give you some major headaches if you aren't careful.
If you spend a few minutes preparing yourself and your device for the move, it will go a long way toward preventing headaches.

We recommend checking in with IT (if you have an IT department) before you install the beta because it could have a negative impact on the software you use for your job.
We also recommend making a backup of your important files, just in case something goes wrong with the installation and your data.
You'll also want to update your apps, including first-party (Samsung) and third-party apps, with the latest updates. If you don't, they might not work.
