One of the biggest challenges with beta testing is finding reliable testers who can provide quality feedback. This is where Beta Family comes in.
Beta Family is a crowd-sourced testing service with more than 83,000 registered testers who are eager to try out new apps. Companies can choose testers based on different criteria, like the testers’ rating, gender, location, and age. A free version of the site gives access to the basic functions. Meanwhile, paid subscriptions provide several ways of getting more testers, offers the app personalized attention, includes the ability to customize questionnaires, and filter segments of testers. Beta Family also offers an option to pay testers if companies want to execute more extensive tests and get even more valuable feedback.
Another challenge that often occurs when it comes to beta testing and managing its process is receiving valuable feedback from beta testers and understanding exactly where something has gone wrong. It takes back and forth communication, tedious bug reporting, and long hours to decipher user steps and real issue. This is where Instabug comes in.
More than15,000 of the world’s top apps like Lyft, Lifesum, and Houseparty, rely on Instabug to receive comprehensive feedback from their testers and build better apps. With one line of code, Instabug’s SDK allows testers to report bugs and send feedback right from inside the app by simply shaking their phones and attaching annotated screenshots with recordings. These reports are sent directly to the company’s designated dashboard with device details, visual users steps, view hierarchy, and all the logs needed to debug and iterate faster. Companies are also able to have in-app conversations with their testers to collect more details and understand what really happened, without the need to leave the app and open conversations elsewhere.

Through this collaboration, our aim is to encourage companies to submit their apps to Beta Family and invite testers to report bugs and send feedback from within the app using Instabug’s SDK. Testers will be able to attach annotated screenshots, screen recordings, and a description related to the feedback or bug sent. With these reports, Instabug will automatically capture comprehensive details and the environment snapshot, visual user steps, the stack trace, and network logs to help teams triage, debug, and fix issues faster. This will help companies build better apps and truly ship high-quality products that win users’ hearts.
