Yelp wants your help testing out their next Android app update. Before releasing their next update to their Android app in the Google Play Store, Yelp has opened a beta test program. Beta testers will need to request access to the Yelp Android Beta Testers community on Google+ to get started, then be ready to be awesome! It’s a requirement.

Interested in receiving the latest version of the Yelp Android app before everyone else? You're in the right place!

So far, there is no actual beta app build to test, but signing up ensures that you get in when it does become available.

YelpStat
Yelp is a business directory built on community reviews, 53 million reviews and counting. They cover many business categories, but are best known for their shopping and restaurant reviews; in-fact, they just announced their top 100 list of best rated places to eat in the US. Spoiler alert: top honors went to a shack in Hawaii.

If you are interested in helping test out the new Yelp beta app when it becomes available, head over to their Google+ Community page to get started. If beta is not for you, you can still find the best businesses near you on their stable app in the Google Play Store.

What are your thoughts on beta programs – are the newest features worth a few bugs? Did your favorite place to eat make it onto the top 100 list?
