Samsung invited Galaxy S10 owners to enroll in its Android 10 beta program on Monday, after Google rolled out the updated operating system on Pixel devices last month. You can check if you have access with the Samsung Members app.

The Android 10 beta includes smaller notifications (so you can continue to reply to that email if someone texts you), an improved Dark Mode and Focus Mode (which lets you pause apps to make sure you aren't interrupted), according to Samsung.

The South Korean company doesn't note which countries the beta program is available in, but SamMobile said people in the US, Germany and South Korea can sign up. You can get it on Galaxy S10E, S10, S10 Plus and S10 5G devices.

We've reached out to Samsung for confirmation about the program's availability outside those three countries and when it'll be available on devices like the Note 10.
