Beta apps and features

Adobe offers you access to beta versions to try various apps and features before general availability. Learn more about how you can access and use our beta apps.

About the beta and programs

Adobe beta apps and features give you an easy way to try pre-release features and apps, help us fix issues, and share feedback and ideas that will shape the future of Adobe products to make them better. And you can run beta builds side by side with the release versions of the apps!

There are three types of beta options available:

  • Tech Preview: Some features still in development are available as a tech preview within the generally available version of the app.
  • Public beta: Public beta is available to anyone with a subscription to an Adobe Creative Cloud app. Download  beta versions of your apps from the Creative Cloud desktop app. For more information, see Adobe Creative Cloud Beta FAQ.
  • Private beta: Some beta programs are private and typically require you to apply for access followed by approval from Adobe, or an invitation from Adobe to participate.

The type of beta program available for your app or feature will be included in the information provided as part of the app or feature details.

Before you join

Betas and tech previews are pre-release versions and may have bugs, incomplete features, or other issues impacting your workflow. Using beta software in a controlled testing environment is always advisable rather than on production systems.

Beta support and resources are provided through our Community Forums, so be sure to join the community provided for your beta app to get help, report bugs or issues, and share feedback or ideas.

To ensure optimum experience with and improvements to our products, Adobe may collect some information regarding your devices, documents, and interaction patterns. Learn more.

For generative AI/Firefly beta features in beta, you can use the Firefly-generated outputs for your commercial projects unless explicitly stated otherwise in the product.
