How to Participate in Zoom beta programs

In Zoom’s new beta testing platform, Centercode, Zoom buyers can create profiles for specific devices and testing configurations for the purposes of determining who will be a great fit for the beta program. As a result, it offers testing participants in these Beta Programs the ability to submit a single location for the submission of all feedback, tracking bug reports and suggesting features at one place.

Prerequisites for enrolling and participating in beta programs

  • It is recommended that you have a Zoom license (at least a Pro user)
  • It is expected that you will actively participate in the Zoom community as well as provide feedback
Note :

If you sign up for a free account, you will not be selected to join a beta, therefore you can still sign up for a beta account if you are looking for one.

Update account settings

The Personal Account Settings allows users to collect and manage simple information about their accounts, as well as updating login information, such as the username and password.

Update profile information

Your profile information, set when you created it, can be edited in My Profile. Zoom uses these items for a variety of reasons, including making demographic and geographical decisions, gathering info for test device shipments, and more.

How to manage hardware platforms for testing

It is also possible to add more hardware devices as well as manage the different hardware platforms installed on your current hardware through Test Platforms. The addition of hardware platforms will allow us to select the users that will be the ideal testers for Centercode’s specific features by allowing us to select those which will be the ideal testers for those particular features.

Add a platform

It is possible to see mandatory and optional entries when adding a platform. It would be really helpful if you would be able to tell me if you have owned the device for a long time or what kind of LED panel it has, but it’s also ok if you don’t remember.

Note : 

There is a dynamic generator generating this area, so expect that the questions asked about the various selections, as well as the available choices, will vary over time.

Adding a platform to your profile can be done as follows:

  • Click on Add a Platform under Test Platforms.
  • Select the type of hardware you wish to add to the platform.

  • Detailed information about the device or hardware should be filled out in the questionnaire.

  • Press Submit.
  • To add another hardware profile, click Add a Platform.

Manage a platform

The platform information can be edited after adding it or it can be removed from your account.

Occasionally, you should manage your Platform Profile so that your chances of being selected for alpha or beta projects are as high as possible.

Edit a platform

  1. Go to the platform’s name.
  2. Update any information about the platform there.
  3. Then click Submit.

Remove a platform

  1. The platform’s name will appear when you move your mouse over it.
  2. Simply click the X icon beside the platform name to close it.
  3. You will be asked to delete the item when you do so.
