When Google announced that community pages for Android apps in the Play Store would allow members to take part in beta testing new features for apps, people who like to live on the cutting-edge everywhere rejoiced. Those same pioneers are likely fans of PushBullet’s cross-platform notification system. Luckily for them, PushBullet has opened up beta testing to the public and now has a few new features that need testing.
To kick off the early-access goodness, PushBullet is letting everyone test one of its new features that allows users to pick where they want the notifications to go. By long pressing in the app, you can bring up a list of devices and contacts that you can toggle on and off so that those mirrored notifications don’t go anywhere you didn’t want them to. A small update to start, but PushBullet promises more features will be rolled out to beta testers soon.
As if that wasn’t enough, PushBullet is also updating its desktop application for receiving messages on your computer. Users won’t have to rely on Firefox and Chrome anymore to get their notifications and overall, this new system should be a lot more stable and easy. The browser extensions and desktop app are built to work together, so you don’t have to choose one or the other. If you haven’t yet installed the desktop app, you can grab it here.
