If you own an Android device, you can help Facebook to test the next version of its app. The Social media giant wants to test any issues with its app before launching to the public. Facebook is taking advantage of Google’s beta testing tool and offers every Android user to test the new version of its app early.
Ragavan Srinivasan, product manager at Facebook told reporters
The most important goal for us is to get a really great snapshot of the diversity that represents Android
Facebook is regularly releasing its updated version of Android app after every four weeks to Google Play. The next version is expected to release on July 8. So in this small time gap it would be difficult for Facebook to test the app in every device so they are giving the testing work to consumers.
To get started, an Android user need to join Facebook for Android Google Group and opt in as a beta tester specifically for the Facebook app. Then a user can download the beta version of app from Google Play. The first beta build will be available for those who opt in to the program late Thursday.
