Learn how you can become a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud beta program, test beta builds of our apps, and share your feedback with us directly.
If you are a Creative Cloud subscriber, you can become a part of our Creative Cloud beta program to test apps and share your feedback directly with Adobe.
Adobe Creative Cloud introduces new tools and features for connected creativity, helping creative and design professionals collaborate and align with stakeholders in real time. Join our Creative Cloud Collaboration and Web beta program.
In the Creative Cloud desktop app, select Beta apps in the left sidebar of the Apps panel. Then select Install for your beta app. You can run beta builds side by side with the release versions of the apps.
Currently, the beta program includes Adobe XD, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Audition, Adobe Character Animator, Adobe Media Encoder, and Adobe Premiere Rush.

Beta builds are installed in their own folder—for example, Adobe Character Animator (Beta)—separate from the release versions of the app. This lets you evaluate beta builds without affecting the work you are doing with the release versions. Beta apps have separate preferences and default user documents folders that won't change the user settings in your existing installation.
To personalize your experience and improve our products, Adobe may collect the following information:
Your regular app settings don't apply to beta apps. If you don't want to share beta app usage information with Adobe, you can continue to use the release versions of our apps.
Beta builds are designed to preserve compatibility with release versions so you can move files between the two. Moving project files from a beta build to the release version will drop features that are only available in beta, and sometimes not be possible at all.
To leave the beta program, simply uninstall the beta builds at any time through the Creative Cloud desktop app.
Beta builds are updated periodically. You can update beta builds when they become available.
You can also enable the Auto-update option for your apps in the Creative Cloud desktop app:
Enterprise customer? Your organization may have disabled the auto-update option. Contact your IT department for further assistance.
In the upper-right corner of your beta app, select the Provide Feedback icon to report a bug, request a new feature, or visit the Adobe beta community.
