Re: Invited to test DropBox for macOS but no notification

Invited to test DropBox for macOS but no notification

A few days I received an email stating "Would you like to beta test the newest version of Dropbox for macOS?
To get started, click the Dropbox icon in your menu bar. On the notification that appears, click Try beta experience."

 

However when I go to my (current version) of the Dropbox app on macOS there is no such notification, so I can't test the new version.

 

I recently upgraded to Ventura but there was also no notification before the os upgrade so I don't think that's the issue.

 

Just curious what's going on

What version of Dropbox are you using @jadran ?

 

If your version number is in the format xx.3.yy you are on a beta build. If it is xx.4.yy then it is a stable build. 

 

You can see and download all beta and stable builds here

Thanks for the feedback.

 

My macOS Dropbox app shows version 161.3.4836 so I guess I'm already on the beta.

 

That's OK but I'm confused how this happened without any action on my part, nor any notification that my app was being "upgraded" to a beta version.  Strange way to do things, I think.
