Do you love to have early access to apps on Google Play Store before they are released to the general public? You have to become a Beta Tester to have full permission to use that feature.
But how exactly can I become a Beta Tester? You may have asked but I will show you after a better explanation.
There are millions of apps available on Google Play Store. Most of these apps are updated on daily basis to fix bugs, performance and other issues. After the app has been updated, the developers need someone or people who will test the new app version and report the bugs and issues before releasing it to the public.
