Hi, I was send PM for expired beta key and nothing answer yet. Is any problem? Please, my key will expire after a week (concretely 27.10.2017). Thank you very much.

The whole beta testing thing is inundated right now due to the countless volume (over 700 last I heard) of requests for beta testing that have to be reviewed one-by-one. So it might take some time to get a reply, sadly.

w/o wanting to complain (well, actually that's what this post is about...) but where is my beta key (Android)?
I applied right after Великая Отечественная война but still got no key.

Sad¹.

I asked for a beta key on Google's form, but I did not get a response. Is it enough if I changed the update channel to the beta in the Adguard settings?

(only) as long as you have a(nother) valid license key.
But with it you're a full fledged BETA tester as soon as you select BETA update channel.

Thanks, this is a reassuring answer. In what cases do you need a beta key? What is the Google Form for?

To get a beta license. If you already have a license you can just enable the beta channel to start beta testing. :)

BETA was/is thought fo BETA testing in test (i.e. non-productive / additional) environments but is IMHO abused by lotsa cheap asses to avoid paying license fees.


Disclaimer: I'm a plain user.


EDIT: BTW: I applied too and they didn't yet issue a BETA key to me :(:mad::confused: which feeds my envy ;)

Thanks again. Furthermore, what does the mentined Google form for? Is it just for introducing the new tester and reading it from a staff member? :)

sarcastically I said to make sure Google analyzes AdGuards user base :/

One wouldn't think a company that's into privacy used Google services...
