    07 Jun 2018 Google Play Release Update

    Hello everyone,

    When we originally set up the guardian’s beta program, we were required by Google to create a G+ community to act as a gatekeeper. Google has since given us the option to make our beta program public.

    We’ve also found over time that it would be more effective for us to keep track of your feedback and bug reports if they all came via e-mail using the app’s bug report button in the toolbar. As such, we are planning to shut down this community early next week.

    You’ll still have new beta versions of the app delivered to your device exactly as before. If you have any question you can e-mail us directly at [email protected]

    Many thanks for continuing to be part of the Guardian’s beta program.

    - The Guardian’s Android team
