"Are you ready to start Voxing on your Windows Phone?" That's what the public announcement on the Voxer support forum reads, which details a beta program for the Windows Phone platform. Good news for those who are eagerly awaiting the service to support Microsoft's mobile platform. So how does one get involved with the company to test out its product?
The post notes that the team has opened up the testing access for the app to a "limited number" of users to provide feedback and anonymous data to the development team for improvements and bug fixing. But again, how does one get involved? It's easy to register your interest as a consumer and hop aboard the beta train.
Simply fire an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org, which will bind yourself to the company's agreement that the .XAP file, any provided feedback and information regarding the performance of the app will remain confidential. Once the email has been sent and yourself chosen to participate in the program, the terms and conditions will need to be agreed to for access to be granted. After that, you're in.
So what information do you need to provide to the team? Here's a good starting point:
- Email used on a Microsoft Account (Windows Live ID)
- Email used on a Voxer account
- Brief statement as to why you'd like to be a part of the beta program
It's good to see the company publicly announce the beta program. We've been following its progress with Windows Phone to accompany support for the Android platform, which already sports an app. If interested, be sure to fire the Voxer team an email with the relevant information and get involved to help shape the upcoming Windows Phone app for other consumers.
