Check for a Software Update on Galaxy S8 Active

Software updates are released to update the UI, enhance security, and remove bugs from your phone. We recommend updating your phone's software whenever it is available.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Software Update

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select System updates.

  3. Touch Download updates manually.

  4. If a system update is available, download and install the update by following the on-screen prompts.

    Touch Back if there is no update available, or if you do not want to download the update. Depending on your software version, it may be necessary to repeat this process multiple times.
