If you want to give it a try, you’ll need to head to Nokia Beta Labs and grab the update from there. Obviously since this is a beta you should expect to see bugs, things may not run very smoothly at this stage. So it usually isn’t advisable to install such a release on your main phone, but in the end it all depends on how patient you are and how much of a tolerance to issues you have.
Either way, the finalized Android 9 Pie update for the Nokia 6.1 Plus should be out in a few weeks, and become available to all of the units ever sold.
