Remote beta testing – a short guide for the end-users

How it works

User test preparation 

Any process has specific steps that have to be followed. In the case of software development, there is a research phase, design phase, development phase, testing and many others. Today we’ll be talking about tests.

In the previous articles, we’ve already covered usability tests. In How do application tests let us make better products, we talked about the internal tests we carried on during the NuroKor project – its benefits and how to run them. We also mentioned external testing with Edu Bears and wrote in detail about this process in the article Improve your digital product with usability tests. But this article will be different. Today, I give you a short preparation guide for beta testers.

How it works

The design process has few steps we’re going through to make this product great. One of those steps is beta testing with final users.

The goal is to test the project. Here, we aren’t testing you as a final user, your workflow or your experience with the software. So don’t worry if something isn’t working or if you can’t find a particular option. That just gives us a sign that we should work on certain areas a little more. Your opinions and insights about the project are most valuable and needed, as you’re the ultimate user of the product. Plus, we want to make your work easier.

User test preparation 

When it comes to remote tests, we prefer to run it on Google Meet – we can easily share a link to the meeting that can be later opened in the browser. Here’s a short guide on sharing the phone screen via Google Meet when testing the mobile version. So let’s get started!

And that’s it! After this step, we can move on to actually testing the mobile version of a product.
