Facebook will now let you beta test its Android appJun 29, 2013, 06:00 (0 Talkback[s])
Android-toting nerds, get ready to feel very, very special: Facebook, a company that seemingly lives to hack on Android, wants to put you on its beta-testing shortlist.
At Facebook headquarters today, engineering director Mike Shaver and product manager Ragavan Srinivasan showed off the company’s new beta program, which will provide regular geeks-on-the-street to access early releases of Facebook’s Android app.
“Showing our hand early … has taken a lot of work,” said Shaver. “But it is a really interesting opportunity for people to take part in a piece of software that means a lot to them.”
