The mySafaricom app now has a beta testing program, here’s how to join

The mySafaricom app has thus far amassed more than 1M downloads in the Google Play Store. While this might not represent the exact number of active installs, this figure keeps growing largely because of the nifty little features Safaricom adds to the app with each version upgrade.

As of this writing, the app has received 18 software updates since its launch, some adding new features while others fixing bugs.

We expect even more software updates and features to be added in future. Usually, software developers push new features to the beta versions of their apps before these same features make their way to the stable channel. This is what mySafaricom beta testing program is here to offer – early access to new features.
