Help make the next versions of Viber our best yet. As a member of the Viber Beta Program, you can take part in shaping Viber by test-driving versions before they’re released publicly and letting us know what you think.
What is a Beta Program?
Beta programs are a method of product/feature testing done with app users. It is the final round of testing performed before a product is finally released to everyone.
Usually, a nearly completed version of the product, known as the beta version, is opened to a limited number of users for testing. Beta testing is done to gain feedback on accessibility, usability, reliability, functionality, and more.
Viber is all about offering the hundreds of millions of people who use it the most advanced and innovative experience. At the same time, we want Viber to be easy-to-use, intuitive, and, most importantly – full of tools and options that YOU want to see.
One of the best ways of fulfilling our promise of creating an app best-suited for everyone is by letting people around the world test out the latest features just before they’re released to everyone else.
This is why we’re so excited about our Beta Program for Android users (coming soon to iPhone)! After downloading the app’s beta version, you will test things before anyone else in the world. The best part of it all is your ability to give us feedback in real-time.
How do I Beta?
What do we need from our beta-testers? Your feedback! The easiest way is for you to report issues through a form or Google Play and include as many details as possible (including what you were doing, what happened, etc.).
As a beta-tester, you will be asked to join a Community dedicated to all the latest updates and announcements. The Community is run by Viber employees dealing with the app’s inner workings, meaning you’ll get news and information straight from them!
In the Community, we will send out surveys and polls about the features we are testing. The more feedback you provide us with, the better the app will be in its next versions and the better experience you will have while using Viber.
Most importantly, though, is that you will enjoy the sneak preview of some of our latest features, technologies, and innovations.
With all that said, beta versions of apps can also be less stable than the widely released ones since developers still work on them. We recommend keeping this in mind if you choose to join the beta program. Places in the Beta Program are limited – if you’re interested in joining, do it now.
