Want to see what’s next for the Google Android app? Public beta welcomes testers
Google’s presence within the world of Android is so pervasive that it almost seems a little weird that we even have a specific “Google” Android app. But if you find yourself interacting with a Google search bar on your home screen, taking advantage of Google’s voice search, or having Google Now lend you a hand, you’ve done so with the help of the Google app. If you’re interested in getting a head start on checking out all the future improvements coming to the app, Google’s got just the ticket for you, inviting users to voluntarily participate in a public beta test.
Once you register (by clicking through to the source link below), Google will start sending the beta Google app out to devices connected to your account; any that already have the regular app installed will see the update for the new beta release arriving shortly. If you later change your mind, you can opt-out of the program, uninstall the beta, and go back to using the mainstream public release.
Unlike other Android beta programs, there’s no need to register for any Google+ tester group – you just use the app as you please, and are invited to submit any feedback you have via email.
So far, there doesn’t appear to be a whole not new in the beta release Google is pushing out to testers, but this program is just getting started; we’re sure we’ll hear more about new Google Now and search-related features popping up in this beta as Google continues to release future builds.
