Alpha and beta tests

Collect user feedback on early versions of your app with alpha and beta testing. Distribute your pre-release app to users as an open beta with a one-click, opt-in URL or as a closed beta using an email list, Google Group, or Google+ community. Users can provide feedback, while not affecting your app’s public reviews and rating. This valuable feedback helps you test features and improve the quality of your app. Learn more.
