Re: Easing Options for Max Footage using Android App

@blueridge38653 

Oh that happened once or twice, just a retry later will do.

Anyway, here the info to get the beta

 

To beta test GoPro App you will have to fill out a NDA first. Here: https://goprorc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3dRVirHRT9IfmBf
I'll add you to our testers' list when it's done.

 

Beta process:
- iOS: install TestFlight on your device, invitation will come per email
- Android: Open this url on your phone and follow instructions to access the beta: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.gopro.smarty

 

You can ask access our Beta Testing feedback groups here either:
- iOS GROUP: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goproapp.ios.beta
OR
- ANDROID GROUP: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goproapp.android.beta

 

I manage those groups, it's a place where beta users share their feedback / ideas / bug reports / videos / questions etc...
We can then do the follow up on the Facebook group and per Messenger, it's best for me to help users that way.

Thanks :)

Re: Easing Options for Max Footage using Android App

I have 20+ years working in Information Technology, and have done volunteer work for a large number of beta tests, and not all companies and their beta programs are equal.  I have been in beta programs where they used external beta testers as QA instead of having an internal team that finds and closes the majority of bugs before they goto outside beta testers.  This is NO fun, especially when the beta versions can have major bugs that render the apps useless.

 

So additional information is needed before I'll try the Beta version of the app, how stable is the beta branch you have external testers using?

Re: Easing Options for Max Footage using Android App

It's fine. No major issues with footage from hero 8 and Max. Seems to be working almost as well as the non-beta with similar bugs I experiences in non-beta.

Re: Easing Options for Max Footage using Android App

@photorivera You're right to be concerned. I share beta when I know that the particular bug we're talking about is fixed :) We have our own strong QA Team working hard on each releases and users who are on the beta mostly share feedback and yes - could discover bugs as well following their own editing process. I try to help users as much as I can - that's all :)
