Become a ProtonMail beta tester and be the first to test new features

Perhaps more than other tech companies, ProtonMail takes pride in being a community-driven project. Our community gave us the initial backing to get started, our users drive our major product decisions, and our main source of funding is individual subscriptions and donations.

We also depend on feedback from our community to develop new products and features as part of the ProtonMail beta program. From squashed bugs to big features like encrypted contacts and PGP support, you can take advantage of these improvements before their public release.

Below you can find everything you need to know about joining the ProtonMail beta program and staying up to date with what our developers are working on.

How to use ProtonMail beta on desktop

It’s extremely simple to use the ProtonMail beta program in the web app. Simply go to beta.protonmail.com and log into your ProtonMail account. That’s it!

How to join ProtonMail beta on Android

To use the ProtonMail beta on your Android device, go to the ProtonMail app in Google Play. Scroll to the developer contact on the page and tap the “Join Now” button under the “Become a beta tester” section.

How to join ProtonMail beta on iOS

To use the ProtonMail beta on iOS, follow the steps below:

  1. Install the TestFlight app on your device.
  2. Send an email to ios.beta@protonmail.com requesting an invitation to join the iOS beta program, along with the email address tied to your Apple App Store account.
  3. Once we have added you to the beta, you will receive a message on the email address linked with your Apple ID. From there, you need to accept the invite, which will open the TestFlight app.

  • Hi all,

    I log in my normal ProtonMail account and then I log in ProtonMail beta, on the same web browser, at the same, 2 different tabs. I can’t tell any difference between both. In fact, both versions are v3.14.12. What am I doing wrong?

    Keep up the very good work!

    • Hi! Sometimes the versions are the saeme, but generally `beta` gets updated before we update the live version. Thank you for your support!

  • – It would be nice to be able to give feedback on the beta protonmail webapp inbox directly from the inbox, just as one can report bugs directly from the inbox
    – I noticed that the “star” for starring emails is on the far right in the new beta version of the inbox, as opposed to on the left in the “normal” version. for me this is quite inconvenient – when looking at the inbox, my eyes are mostly focused on the left side of the screen, where the rest of the information about emails is (sender name and subject line)
    – I think this has been already mentioned and is being dealt with, but perhaps worth saying again: the color tone difference between read and unread emails in the beta version is not very large, making it sometimes hard to visually recognize the unread emails.

    thanks for all the hard work. go proton!

  • Thank you so much for ProtonCalendar! I would like to suggest to add the possibility for repeated events to set a limit of repetitions. It would also be nice to see the events starting hour in month view.
