If you are a successful Android developer, chances are that you wouldn’t want to push out an update that is unstable and might cause distress amongst your loyal user fan base. At Google I/O today, Google announced that starting today, Android developers will be able to beta test their Apps before pushing it out to the masses. Within the developer console, there will now be three tabs – “alpha testing”, “beta testing” and “product”.
Using users from Google+ and Google Groups, developers can now select them to allow them to beta test the App before making it live. Constant feedback can be posted by the users which can be viewed using the Google Developer Console. This is definitely going to be a popular feature and make iOS users jealous. They always have TestFlight at their disposal though.
