What is Beta Culture?
Beta culture is a new trend in software / hardware development and distribution where devices or applications that are said to be in the software testing phase are released to keep up with competitors and market trends. Although they have gone through the first step in the testing cycle, these beta releases still have a long way to go before the final product release. Today companies tend to implement products that are still in beta - in the hopes that customers will adopt them, quirks, and everything else.
With the continuous advancement of technology, innovative ideas are popping up everywhere. Even well-known companies have a habit of releasing beta versions as if they were finished products. This is done with the belief that a product can ultimately be fixed through product updates for features or bug fixes. The risk is that the beta product could make customers dissatisfied and damage the company's credibility.
