The One UI beta 2 update isn’t all sunshine and roses. Some users on Reddit are experiencing a handful of new bugs after the update. For instance, some folks are seeing the close all button in the recent apps menu is gone if they use a third-party launcher. Others have noticed a buggier animation when using the gesture navigation to go back to the home screen.

The official consumer-ready version of One UI is slated to roll out sometime in January 2019 for the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and Galaxy Note 9. If you’re a Note 9 owner, you can finally sign up to join the One UI beta program. Instructions on how to do so are here.
