Help Us Shape the Future
Building a better Evernote starts with you.
Want to contribute your voice to the latest versions of Evernote? Don’t mind the occasional bug? Join our beta program! You’ll test new versions of Evernote before they’re released to help decide what works and what needs to improve. Tell us about yourself, and we’ll contact you when we have a beta that’s a good fit. Questions? See our FAQs.
New UI is really great for writing and editing notes. A much better experience than previously. This is great! - Matt (Beta tester)
What is a beta?
A beta (also called “prototype service”) is a version of a software that is available to a small testing group of customers before it’s released to the general public. Betas may not have all the features that end up in a general release, and you may experience unexpected behavior when using a beta version of the product.
What is the Evernote Beta Program?
The Evernote Beta Program is designed to give customers the opportunity to test and provide feedback on new Evernote features before a general release. When you join the beta program, you may be asked to test specific features and functionality in a real-world environment so you can provide feedback. Participation is optional and you can leave the beta program at any time.
Who can join?
The Evernote Beta Program is open to all customers with personal Evernote accounts. Please note that not all participants in the beta program will have access to all of the betas. The devices you use, how you use Evernote, and how often you use Evernote will help us determine which betas you may be asked to participate in.
Evernote Business customers aren't eligible for this beta program. However, there are occasionally Evernote Business features that are available for beta testing outside of this program. Evernote Business account admins can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Are Beta versions stable?
Beta software is, by nature, a work in progress, so you may encounter the occasional bug or other issues. In addition, some features may appear to be missing. We're working hard and will add more features, functionality, and fixes in our future updates.
Does it cost money?
No. It is free to participate in the beta program. You are not required to have a paid Evernote subscription.
Do I receive compensation for joining the program or testing your products?
No. There is no compensation for your participation.
Is beta software confidential?
Yes. All of the functionality you access through our beta program is confidential information. This means you may not reveal anything to anyone else, such as through blog posts, Twitter, or other such public postings. Please do not discuss the beta software with or demonstrate it to others who are not in the Evernote Beta Program. Please do not install beta software on any systems you don't directly control or that you share with others. If Evernote publicly discloses technical information about the beta software, it is no longer considered confidential.
How will Evernote contact me?
We will contact you using the email you provide in the sign up form, which should be the email address associated with your Evernote account.
How do I provide feedback?
For most beta testing, we will ask for your feedback in surveys sent to your email. For some betas, you may also have the ability to leave feedback directly within the app or to engage with other testers in a closed, private forum.
How do I leave the beta program?
Please fill out this form to opt out of the Beta Program, and you will be removed within the next 48 business hours. You will not receive any further communications about the program after that, so if you change your mind, you’ll need to sign up once again. If you want to return to using the current Evernote app, be sure your notes are synced and then go to evernote.com/download or the iOS App Store/Google Play Store to reinstall.
