But, What Does Beta Mean?

When we refer to a beta feature, we’re referring to a feature that is generally being offered in a sort of test mode. Here are the criteria that determine a feature as beta:

What If a Beta Feature Goes Away?

We can’t make any promises that a beta feature will remain in the site, as it is generally there to test viability or popularity. If only a small portion of users find the feature to be helpful and a large amount of development time is required to build the feature further, it may remain beta forever or it may be removed. We want to make sure that we focus our efforts on features that the majority of our users will benefit from.

In the event that removal of a beta feature affects your content, we will provide adequate notice.
