Google Play say: "No suitable device available"
I have to wait for auto update?

Probably yes. I'm also waiting what will happen. But if this work in similar way as in normal versions (probably yes), it should took around one hour, till you receive notification on update ...

if this will work then yes. But if you look at it, in the end there will be no serious difference. Except that it will be a lot easier to install this versions. They will just install as common updates over Google Play.

But I still see no update, hmm. Home there will not be a huge delay. Then it lost a sense ... :)

Menion,
Please check your developer console and go to the apk section. Click Beta-Test and hit "edit list of beta testers". You should get a link like
Code: [Select]
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.locus.
Testers need to click on that link...

Or Google for "how to set up beta testing in play store correctly"

I can't see it either :-S
Do we have to use Google plus for this (the app) or just sign up in the community once?
(This Google plus app has really taken a bad direction (can't sign out, battery and mobile data drain) with the new version. As long as I can use the old version (allows me to log out and kill the app) it is no problem.)

I'm already beta testing some other apps.

Guys, don't worry. You don't need the g+ app and you don't need to stay signed in. It's just a sign up process. You will get your test app delivered through the play store.

+1. Tho I naturally have a Google account I don't have Google+ set-up (and would like not to do it). Any chance to have download for all users?
And one additional question, would this be problem provide testing versions with both Free and Pro ID? (so that users of both editions could decide if having testing version installed aside or inplace of official build)

A pity.
If this is a easy and good way for Menion - it's ok for me too.

It's really bullshit with new g+ beta testing. After unwilling register to g+ I don't get any new version. It's worst, after reinstall free version from play store I'm getting a lot of advertising.

I must agree, new beta testing channel is more complicated than before. My phone is mostly on slowish 3G connection so getting versions from Play store is a pain. Would that be problem to keep distributing test version in both old and new channels?
