Facebook for Android’s beta group has seen over 1 million testers successfully help fix bugs before updates launch to hundreds of millions of normal users. Now the company looks to replicate that success by launching a beta program for its Android Messenger app.
Messenger was introduced two years ago, when Facebook set out to create the best messaging experience that would allow users to connect with their friends over many different channels.
Today, Facebook released a beta program for its Android Messenger app which has automatic updates with new features and fixes every week. Facebook is focused on making Messenger stable, and fast. They still have competition in the messaging space and will be looking to enhance the app to stay competitive.
The company says performance and reliability are important aspects of any product that is high quality. So for a messaging product in today’s technologically advanced world it is more true than ever.
Facebook has learned a lot about improving mobile performance, and the Beta program for Facebook’s Messenger app on Android is another tool they have at their disposal to run tests, make tweaks, and further optimize for performance and usability.
