What to Expect from Open Beta
It’s good to remember that Beta Builds are a pre-release version of the final software and may be unstable, lack features and generally not function as expected. It’s important you’re aware of this before participating. Open Beta can be fun and hugely rewarding, but it can also be frustrating. If you want to join in the process-welcome aboard! If the Open Beta is not for you, that's okay, too. You can change your mind at any time and return to the version you’re used to.

Now you can simply tap on the screen to be taken to our curated events page, where you’ll find a range of unique shows waiting for you.
GIFs Keyboard (iOS)
iOS has introduced GIF keyboard functionality, so you can search and post your favourite GIFs in chat.
Stability Improvements (iOS)
Various improvements have been made to how the app caches data, which results in a better overall experience.
User Profile Revamp (Android)
The design of the user profile has been given a fresh lick of paint to make things a whole lot sleeker.
Chats List Filters (Android)
When you head to your Chat tab, you’ll find a series of buttons near the top that let you filter your chat to easily switch between your desired filters.
