What is it?
SoMee has been in development beta for about 3 months, and we kept our old site online, and NEW BETA site online for about a month - now it's time to move to an Open Beta so everyone can try and experience the new social media experience we are cooking up
When is it?
We will be releasing this to https://beta.somee.social today, 5/5/2021!
You don't need to do anything special to access it, just go to the website, sign in with your SoMee account, and you should be good.
- Update 5/6/2021 at 3:07 PM PST: We have fixed the sign up flow for new users on the platform. New users can now sign in!
- Update 5/5/2021 at 6:23pm PST: We have noticed that NEW users cannot sign up, and have identified a bug in how that process worked. Devs are working on fixing it.
- Update 5/5/2021 at 5:57pm PST: We have released to open beta!
- Update 5/5/2021 at 307pm PST: We are very close to releasing, just doing QA testing!
Who has Access
Everyone! Here's the important part tho:
- If you have an existing SoMee social account prior to 3/1/2021, then you have access to the beta without having to re-register
- If you created your account AFTER 3/1/2021, chances are you will need to register on beta.somee.social to gain access
Why? Because we didn't migrate the users between 3/1 to 5/5 over to the new app yet. We'll do that at the end of the month!
How do I access if I'm a new user?
If you have never had a SoMee account before, or created your account after 3/1/2021, then you will simply need to do the following:
- Visit https://beta.somee.social
- Click Sign Up
- Enter your information on the sign up page
- Read the popup that welcomes you to the Open Beta
Then you can check your email which should (in about 2-5 minutes) contain two emails:
- Confirmation email: Used to verify your email and validate your account
- Beta Invite: Contains your password to login to the beta.
Simply confirm your account, and use the password you were sent to login. Simple as that.
Come the 28 May Update, we'll update the login/sign up flow to be more streamlined.
Keep in mind the following:
- This open beta is mainly for web (which you can use on your mobile devices w/o issue)
- The Android will be updated, but we are not officially calling the android an open beta
- The IOS probably won't be ready until end of May due to Apple's restrictions on beta apps
SO again, this open beta on beta.somee.social is mainly for just accessing our site on the WEB - which you can again do on desktop and mobile w/o issue.
If you use IOS, you can still access the beta on beta.somee.social on your web browser there is barely any difference between the app version and the mobile site version!
