Motorola looks to give its apps some TLC with Beta Experiences program
- Alongside the Moto G6 and E5 series, Motorola also announced its Beta Experiences program.
- The program lets early adopters test out new features for existing and new Moto experiences.
- Motorola did not say when the program will launch or what else early adopters can expect.
Regardless of the smartphone, Motorola typically shines when it comes to software. That is thanks to the included Moto features, such as Moto Voice and Moto Display, that tend to compliment the Android experience rather than clash with it.
As such, it makes sense for Motorola to take its first-party apps more seriously with the new Beta Experiences program, reported Android Central.
Announced alongside Motorola’s new Moto G6 and E5 smartphone lines, the Beta Experiences program lets you try out new features of existing and new Moto experiences. You can then provide feedback in order for Motorola to refine those experiences for the masses.
Motorola did not say whether its program allows early adopters to test Android updates. Such programs have become more prevalent in the industry, with the likes of OnePlus, Nokia, Samsung, and Google pushing beta software to eager testers.
Motorola also did not say when the Beta Experiences program will launch. Given the timing, it could launch alongside the Moto G6 and E5 series, but only time will tell.
The program would be a welcome change for a company like Motorola, which has not been as transparent with its updates as other manufacturers. The company also struggles to issue timely software updates, with the Moto Z Play still stuck on Android Nougat in the U.S.
We are hopeful that the Beta Experiences program speeds up Motorola’s software updates. Given the company’s track record, however, we would not be surprised if there was no effect.
