Experience a New BlackBerry Beta Zone

News

You spoke, we listened!

Last spring, we asked for your thoughts and feedback – the good, the bad and the ugly – on your overall user experience with BlackBerry® Beta Zone. Now, based on more than 3,000 responses from the BlackBerry Beta Zone community, we’ve made changes based on what you asked for!

Some quick background: BlackBerry Beta Zone gives users a unique opportunity to get the newest BlackBerry software and applications before they’re ready to be released to the general public. Once users test out the software, they have the opportunity to offer feedback and suggestions directly to us about how to improve the experience for all users.

Now that you’re caught up on what BlackBerry Beta Zone is, let’s go through the new changes and improvements:

A more user friendly interface

We’ve redesigned the site from top to bottom. It’s more engaging to use, has more interactive elements, and offers a more intuitive user experience to make sure you can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily.

A clearer division between Business and Consumer beta programs

We’ve also now separated BlackBerry Beta Zone into two distinct sites: BlackBerry Beta Zone and BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business. BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business now has its own dedicated URL so users can more easily access enterprise programs, while consumers only see content and programs that are of interest to them.

More opportunities to get involved

We know BlackBerry Beta Zone members have a lot to say, so we’ve added a blog-style newsfeed to provide the latest site news and allow you to comment and share in the conversation. We’ll also be posting more frequent polls and surveys, ensuring that there are more opportunities than ever to get your feedback.

Improved mobile experience

BlackBerry beta testers are always on the move, so we’ve optimized our mobile site to make it easier to provide your feedback on the go. We’ve revised the mobile layout, simplified the download process, and added access to a number of new features – all to improve your mobile beta testing experience.

And that’s just what we’ve got launching today! We’re always looking for your feedback on how we can continue to improve your BlackBerry Beta Zone experience – so make sure to log in, check out the new site, and tell us what you think!
