Becoming a Beta Tester?

    Question

  • I am trying to find out how to register as a beta user for Windows Phone applications. I visited this site: https://connect.microsoft.com/directory/non-feedback/mobile-devices-software/ but it doesn't seem to have any Windows Phone Beta products, only products that are accepting bugs or suggestions. 

    I have also checked here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj215598(v=vs.105).aspx and it states that apps marked as "beta" when submitted will not show up in the Windows Phone Store.

    How does one go about being able to download a Windows Phone beta app and testing it?  Many thanks in advance for responding.

  • There is no general setting that would allow you to access Beta Apps. Each developer has full control over the Beta of his/her own Apps. Therefore you would have to get in contact with the developers of the App the Beta of which you'd like to participate in.

    If they accept you into the Beta they would register your account for Beta access and send you a link that would then allow you to download/update the Beta version of that App.

  • This need the publisher of the app to set your account to the beta app's beta testers' list.
