Title: BETA testing - Overview & Download links
Post by: MartinZ on December 03, 2015, 11:10:55 AM

here I would like to explain how the beta program works.

How to participate in the beta program?
1. Download the beta installers
Online beta installers:
FREE https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_FREE/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA
PREMIUM https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_APR/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA


Offline beta installers:
FREE https://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
PREMIUM https://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
OMNI https://files.avast.com/beta9x/avast_omni_setup_offline.exe

2. After installation you will see "BETA" sign next to the product name in GUI - this indicates that you are on the beta channel

3. On beta channel we release new versions more frequently (usually once a week) and they are being delivered automatically, that means that Avast should be always running on the latest version (you can turn this off via Settings->Update->Program

4. If you find any bug or issue, please report it either via the feedback from directly in Avast, or make a new thread in this forum section.

5. If you with to switch back to the stable channel, then please uninstall the Avast beta version, restart PC and install the latest stable version from the links below:
FREE https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_FREE/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_RELEASE
PREMIUM https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamily_ANTIVIRUS/insttype_APR/platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_RELEASE

Hope this helps, and happy beta testing ;-)

Thank you for your help.

Simply uninstalling doesn't remove you from the beta.
You need to do a Clean Install https://goo.gl/4Ptzkf
