Greetings testers! 
For a better reading experience, open this issue in your browser 🌎
Olympics! Last week some apps made an effort to provide you full coverage on this topic. Scroll to Facebook and Google Search updates below to see details. 
What else noticeable happened during this week? Snapchat pushed its new 3D Bitmojies and Snapmap updates to more people. Telegram beta got an update as well, but it didn’t have any “big” features compared to other apps so it didn’t make it to our top 3 updates chart 👻
What’s new?
  • 📲 Google Keep got new background images to help you organising your notes
  • 📲 Snapchat added My Places for you to add them into favourites and see when you’ve visited them
  • 📲 WhatsApp rolling out Linked Devices Beta program to more Android users
See more details below 👇

TestingCatalog project
Some discussions in our Telegram group made me posting about the manifesto that I currently follow behind TestingCatalog. Here is the summary:
Here is the list of different app update types that I post about:
1. client-side feature releases that are available to everyone
2. client-side feature releases that are available to alpha/beta testers
3. server-side A/B test rollout waves that are available to me (when the feature is only available to some users and I got access to it) 
4. server-side countrywide rollouts (when the feature is only available in selected countries and in my case it is Germany)
5. global server-side rollouts to all users
6. ICYMI posts - "In Case You Missed It" - about some relatively recent but not new and possibly useful features
7. other cases may happen as well but they are rare 😜
You can also notice that this newsletter became a bit cleaner and I hope it will become even more enjoyable for you to read! What do you think?
Happy Testing!
