Samsung is releasing the app required for the Galaxy Watch 4 beta program a day before the major launch, but the last step is still a mystery.
APP FOR GALAXY WATCH 4 BETA IS NOW AVAILABLE Samsung said last month that the Galaxy Watch 4 would have a beta program to test out a new iteration of the One UI Watch skin, still based on Wear OS of course. Samsung is setting the framework for the upgrade today, although it is unclear what will be new in it.
As mentioned on Twitter and demonstrated below with Max Weinbach’s help, Samsung is currently putting out the app that makes the Galaxy Watch 4 beta available through the Galaxy Store. The Galaxy Wearable app is compatible with Samsung’s smartwatch because it installs over the Galaxy Watch 4 plugin and performs the same purpose.
As we explained last week, the only way to get the app for now is to register for the Galaxy Watch 4 beta via the Samsung Members app.
There are currently no discernible changes in the Galaxy Wearable app after installing this update; however, considering that the OTA has not yet arrived, this is not altogether surprising. It’s conceivable that the upgrade will enable some new app capabilities, but for the time being, only time will tell.
However, the OTA has not yet arrived. Samsung has previously stated that the Watch 4 upgrade, or the genuine OTA, would be accessible beginning on June 2. As of the time of publication, June 2 had arrived in South Korea, the home country of Samsung, thus the OTA should be rolling out over the next day or so.
You must own a Samsung smartphone to participate in the first Galaxy Watch 4 beta test because the app is required to use the update and is only accessible through the Galaxy Store. The Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will be able to receive the update, but not their LTE models.
Watch this space for updates on Samsung’s upcoming beta.
