Nextbit has announced a new optional beta testing program for owners of the Nextbit Robin. It will allow them to try out upcoming software features and updates before they are released to all owners of the smartphone.
In a community forum post, Nextbit stated:
Nextbit Beta Testers are a group of Robin owners who raise their hands to provide our team with help and feedback. As a member of the beta program, you have an opportunity to be included in various studies with direct access to the Nextbit team.
As a Nextbit beta tester, you'll play an important role in our software's development. You'll have a chance to use features that haven't been released to the public. However, keep in mind the beta program is not intended as a way to quick way to cut to the front of the line for new software. It's a responsibility, and you accept risk on the behalf of other users. If you are not ready to do that, the beta testing program may not be right for you.
