Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta download

AT&T has begun seeding the Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and users should be able to install the update via OTA. For most users, the update should show up as a notification or you might have to check for the update manually by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. 

The device would begin scanning for the OTA update and you could simply tap on download to begin downloading the update. However, if you still haven’t received the update after checking for the update manually, then here are a few steps to perform to force download the Pie update on your Galaxy S9.
