The Android team is pleased to announce the Android Suite Beta release of the Faithlife apps.

If you are already signed up for the beta via Google Play you will automatically receive the beta update over the next few hours.

If you are a new beta user or haven't previously tried one of our beta apps before, we have switched to Google's Open Beta test model so you don't need to sign up - just use the opt-in links shown below.

If you find a bug please see for instructions on how to report it.
