Google Apps Problem
Several Google Apps are not functioning properly after the Galaxy S8 updated to Android Pie. Many users are having issues with their Google Alarm clock. The clock symbol is missing on the status bar, which leads to confusion whether the alarm is on or off.
Play Store Issues
Android Pie update has made installing new Apps a lot more troublesome. Several third-party apps now cannot be installed, while for some users, App installation is taking too long.
Is anyone else getting the issue on Pie where if you go to update your apps in the Google Play Store, and then go to another app, it does not continue downloading all the updates? How can we fix it?
In several Galaxy S8 phones, the Bluetooth icon has gone after the Android 9 update, users have to go to settings to turn on Bluetooth. Also, connecting a new Bluetooth device to a phone has become quite difficult, the connection is terminated randomly.
Messages not working Properly
Many users have complained that the new messaging system in Android 9.0 Pie update takes up half of their screen. While for some other Galaxy S8 users, they are unable to sent messages.

Im so upset for updating to #oneui this screwed up my note 8 so bad. Did this update got tested before release? The whole #samsung oneui team should be ashamed of this crap. This is even worse than TouchWiz and all other failed Samsung software
