Right before the device's theme reverts to the stock one, users will receive a couple of notifications informing them one day and 10 minutes before the pending change takes effect.

You can register for the beta in the Samsung Members app (Samsung+ for folks in the US). Once enrolled, you will be able to download the Android Pie beta build from the Settings " Software update menu by tapping Download updates manually. After that, the theme will automatically be reverted to the default. Some designers are comfortable offering up themes for free, yet Samsung still wants to limit the use of those to just 14 days.

During her childhood she was deprived of speech and human contact as she trained to become the worlds greatest assassin. Ewan McGregor will play the film's villain and Rosie Perez will portray Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya.

This may seem confusing, but you should know that Samsung Themes offers both free and paid themes. Looking at the top charts, they are unsurprisingly dominated by the free themes. And, of course, Samsung gets a cut from theme sales. It appears not everything about Android Pie on Samsung devices is going to be good. Again, keep in mind that these are free themes. Only time will show if this change will force users to change their usage habits. Those who don't want to stand out can also go with the more common Midnight Black or Titanium Gray, but there is also a Lilac Purple color choice.
