new features for testing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I published an app one year ago and it can be downloaded, recently I added some new features in my app and before publish it to store, I wanna send it to my friends to help me to find bugs. Is there any way to achieve this?

  • Hi Alex,

    You can achieve this by using Sideload(deploy your app in another device without publishing to the windows store).

    If your app is Windows 8.1, you can refer to this link.

    And if your app is Windows Phone 8.1, After you created the package, You can deploy apps by using the Application Deployment tool and here is the link.

    And if your app is UWP, you can refer to this link.

    You need to pay attention to this part and should choose No option button for sideload. If you choose Yes, an .appxupload package will be generated and you can submit your package to the store.However if you want to test locally,you need to choose No option. 

    Best Regards,

    Neal Wang
