WHAT WE'RE UP TO
IT'S FINALLY HERE!
After what's felt like a very long wait, this weekend we proudly launched our Beta program, and allowed 50 users to access our brand new website.
So far, we've had nothing but positive feedback, which is fantastic to see.
Along with the fresh new website, we've also introduced our new pink branding and voices.
For those of you who haven't got a Beta key, we've added some more which you can find in the UpBeat Shop. However, these are selling fast, so make sure you get yours as soon as possible.
We can't thank our community enough for the endless support with V3, and cannot wait to release it to the rest of the world on 8th June.
HAS UPBEAT GOT NEWS FOR YOU?
GET READY FOR A NEW WEEKLY RADIO SHOW!
From next month, the News department will be launching their own radio show.
