How to join/leave the VRidge Beta Update channel?

We are constantly developing VRidge to provide upgrades, bug fixing and new features. When we release a patch - it's first released to the "Beta channel". It serves as a testing version so we can track down all the potential issues with the help of our community. After fixing all the bugs, we move the version from "Beta" channel to the official "Stable" one.

If you'd like to test out the newest features sooner and help us make VRidge better by letting us know if there are any problems you can join the Beta anytime it's available.

Joining the "Beta" channel

To join the "Beta" channel, you will have to update both mobile and desktop application into the Beta version.

VRidge mobile app for Android

When both mobile and desktop application will be updated, you will be able to connect them together and work with new features. Have fun and let us know when you will encounter any issues.
