VeVe 2023 Feature Rollout Process + Release Notes

This article outlines the new feature rollout and testing process for VeVe including updates on recent releases.

VeVe is under constant development with new optimizations and product features regularly added to improve the user experience and overall performance. While many of these optimizations and upgrades happen behind the scenes, new features require live beta testing, and we have begun to select VeVe users to assist us in this process.

‍VeVe Development Cycle

Each VeVe development cycle takes approximately two weeks. During this time, optimizations and upgrades are made to the app, and are then submitted to app stores for approval before they are made available to the public. Many of these updates are not forward facing, meaning that they usually take place without needing user input or testing.

However, new features do require testing and often take much longer to design, engineer, and develop. This is because these items make large and fundamental changes to the app and its operations. Given we are dealing with customer assets, they must go through rigorous internal testing, compliance reviews, security audits, and more before they are made available for the public to test. Recent examples include Crypto Pay-in and KYC.

Beta Testers

When these features are introduced into the public app, they will only be available to select users (beta testers). These beta testers will be randomly selected and invited via email to test the feature. This ensures that the new product feature being introduced will be adequately tested by a wide range of users before being made available to all users.

In addition, whitelisted users will primarily be selected from countries and territories with lower fraud risk. This includes France, Germany, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the U.K.

If selected for the beta testing of a feature, you will receive an email from VeVe. The email will also contain a feedback link to communicate with the development team, should you face any issues. If you have received an email from domain, you have been invited to beta test a new VeVe feature!

New Feature Rollouts

VeVe approaches each new feature with an incremental rollout plan. This begins with a small list of active users that are randomly selected.

Provided no critical issues are found, the feature will be progressively made available to more and more users, until reaching a user target for that feature to be considered “ready.” The feature will then be made available to all users.

For example
, a typical feature rollout may look something like this:

Testing start date: Jan 1
Testing end date:
Feb 5
20,000 beta testers
5 increments over 5 weeks
Depending on the feature being introduced, the number of VeVe users with access to use and test it will progressively increase.

Example: Incremental rollout of a new product feature on VeVe

When all issues from the initial 20,000 users have been resolved and no further critical issues discovered, the feature will be made available to all users. In the event that critical bugs/issues are discovered when the feature is being tested, the rollout will be paused and will not resume until the issues are resolved.

Recent Updates

In this section, you will find the latest updates to key features on the VeVe platform. Releases will occur across all platforms, though some platforms may experience delays due to submission approval processes. We will update this list as frequently as possible, so keep this article bookmarked!
