Congratulations!

Post by vikingson » Sat May 08, 2021 3:45 pm

Congratulations on the release of Android 2021 of Softmaker Office and thanks for making it available for free! I just got your email with the announcement.

Couple of questions:
Do I need to re-download since I am using the beta version, or does it automatically upgrade to the release?

Also, if I'm working on a project over the summer or perhaps for 6 months or so and subscribe to get pdf and epub export and printing, are there any issues or any problems if I drop the subscription afterward?
Thanks and congrats again on a fantastic release! I never imagined it would be so painless to use your software on an Android tablet.

Thank you, vikingson!

For the time being, you can stay in the beta program since we update both the release channel and the beta channel. But at some point you should leave the beta, uninstall the beta apps and reinstall the final apps.

You can cycle in and out of the subscription as often as you want.

I removed the beta versions and searched Google Play for softmaker office. It only shows beta versions of the software for some reason.

OK. Will do. Thanks!
Edit: I removed the apps from my Google Play apps, and uninstalled the apps, and removed myself from the beta tester on each app, and it still comes up beta apps in a search on Google Play. Plus, app search also still says I'm a beta tester for the apps :(

Reboot the device or wait a day. Maybe Google Play is slow to notice.

That could be it. Will try again tomorrow.
Edit: Yep. It just doesn't took Google awhile to catch up. Nice thing is it remembered all my settings from the beta, just had to give it permissions and reconnect to Google Drive :)

In my case, Google Play replaced the beta versions with the store versions as an automatic update, I only knew fron the padlocks on the subscription features. ;)

This is not the same thing. You are still in the beta channel, but we uploaded the final version there as well, so that not everybody has to leave the beta channel immediately.
