Beeper Update #4 - Out of Beta!
We’re still here! Sorry for the radio silence over the last 7 months. We’ve been heads down working on Beeper. Bad news: I’ve done a terrible job at keeping everyone updated about our progress. Good news: we’ve made an incredible amount of progress.
As of today, we are proud to share that Beeper is out of beta!
* except for the Beeper iOS app, it still needs a few more weeks of TLC
Our whole team has been working tremendously hard over the last few months to crush remaining bugs in the app. It’s been amazing to see how much progress we’ve made since our last update. You know that startup neologism about how you’re meant to be embarrassed about the first version of your product? Looking back now I can safely confirm that we abided by this rule! If you want to take a walk through memory lane, check out our changelog.
Ok, sounds great - when can I start using Beeper?
✅ Prepaid: We’ve sent out invites to everyone who prepaid for a Beeper subscription. Thank you for your support!
⏳ Reserved: We’re currently sending out invites to everyone who reserved a Beeper username during Spring 2021
Over 100,000 of you are on the waitlist for Beeper! Thanks for your patience as we work our way through the waitlist. Unfortunately, we can’t just open the doors and let everyone use Beeper right away. We are still working on scaling up our server infrastructure. Our primary objective is to make sure the service is stable for those who have already started using Beeper. As we improve our infrastructure, we will be inviting more of you off the waitlist!
Here’s what we’re working on next:
Fixing remaining bugs on our Known Issues list, including being able to start new chats from Beeper
Scaling up our server infrastructure
Moving from Testflight to iOS Appstore
Making it easier to get started and connect to other chat networks to Beeper
Want to see more of Beeper? A few Youtubers have been in the early group of beta users and posted reviews
(Hope you speak Hungarian!)
Slightly older reviews…
We’re really proud of the progress we’ve made so far, with lots more in the works. See you on Beeper soon!
