Second One UI 6.0 Beta goes live for Galaxy S23 Series

Earlier this month, Samsung kicked off the first One UI 6.0 beta program for its latest S series phones. And as expected, the second beta of One UI 6 has also started rolling out before end of this month.

One UI 6.0 beta 2 is rolling out to the Galaxy S23 series in Germany, South Korea, and the US. The update was first released in Germany but soon it went live in South Korea and the US.

One UI 6.0 Beta 2 for Galaxy S23 series comes with software version ZWHO. The second beta brings a bunch of bug fixes that were present in the first beta. It includes the home screen crash fix. Many Galaxy S23 users in these three regions already received the update. A user also shared the One UI 6.0 Beta 2 changelog screenshot in Reddit. However some of the new features are missing from the screenshot.

The second beta brings a revamped homepage for Samsung Health making the content easier to see health information. With the second beta you can now turn off the swipe up/down gesture to switch cameras, and many other changes.
