Messages, Google’s messaging app for Android phones, will begin an Open Beta program! The Open Beta gives users the opportunity to test, and provide input and feedback, on experimental features not yet released to the general public. 

We would love to have you participate in the Open Beta. To join, please see the instructions below or our help center article:

Sign up for beta testing
  1. Choose Become a tester.
  2. Follow the instructions.

How beta testing works
As a beta tester, you’ll be able to use features that haven’t been released to the public. These features could become publicly available in the future. We ask that you don’t publicize or share the features you’re testing until they’re publicly available.
