Since this is a beta build, it’s bound to have some bugs, so you should proceed with caution and install at your own risk.
Samsung is expected to launch its Android 9 Pie beta program for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ any day now. When that happens, Samsung will start pushing the exact same beta update in OTA form to owners of Galaxy S9 devices who have subscribed to receive the beta via Samsung’s Members app.
So if you want, you can wait for the OTA. Samsung might start the beta in the US by the end of the month, so fingers crossed!
