HERE Android BetaHERE has announced a Public Beta program for its Android app. Anyone with an Android device (read system requirements below) running Android 4.1 or higher can test the latest Beta app. The Beta version brings a feature, a new shortcut menu accessible from a single press anywhere on the map.

System Requirements:

An Android device (requires Android version 4.1 or higher; 1 GB of RAM; app is optimized for screen sizes from 4 to 6.9 inches).

How to Join:

1) Join the HERE Beta Program Google group.

2) Visit this link on your mobile device and click on Become a Tester. Please note, you must join the HERE Beta Program group first (from step 1) before you can become a tester.

3) Open the Play Store app on your mobile device and install or update the HERE app with the beta version by choosing Update or Install.

4) Use the app as you normally would and tell us what you think or report problems using the Feedback option in the HERE menu of the app or email us directly at [email protected].

Please note, the beta version will replace the regular HERE app on your device. Because the beta app will have features that are still a work in progress, the app may appear less stable or not behave as expected.
