Hi all, another beta is rolling out tonight: v7.4.0-BETA! Some of the notable changes in this one:

1) Activity Page Updates: We’ve added another way to easily get to your notifications & messages: through the new Activity page.

2) Video like notifications: Now receive a push notification when somebody likes your videos!

3) Performance updates: We’ve done more to make photo & video uploads more reliable. We’ve also continued to decrease the battery life the app uses. 

4) We also added a little prehistoric easter egg to the app!

And as usual, a bunch of bug fixes and other small updates are included here too. Let us know what you think, and thanks for continuing to provide such great feedback!

-------

Remember that new builds can take time to propagate out from the Play store, so give it some time if you don't immediately see the update.

And make sure you've opted-in to the Beta by clicking the link in the Community description.

If you don't know whether you're running the beta, go to the app Settings page. At the bottom, the version number will be suffixed with "-beta". This release is v7.4.0-BETA.

I'm still seeing the problem with images not loading; I've only seen it on Yelp Talk so far.

#bug report 🐞 🐞

If I click on the "find more local events" link/tab at the bottom of the Weekly Yelp email and tell it to open the app it gives me the "Sorry, we had trouble loading this event" error page.

I have a review of a restaurant posted. When I went to the page of that restaurant,there's an option to "Edit Review." When I click on it, I consistently get the message:

"Update Review
You're leaving another review for this business..."

which isn't what I expected nor want. I want to edit the existing review and the button name and title of the page is totally misleading if not flat out wrong and MUST be fixed!

Currently if I really want to edit a review, from the restaurant's page, I have to scroll down to Recommended Reviews, click on my review then I can make edits.

Photo Comp #bug update:

The old #bug was if you sent a photo comp thru the app for anything older than 3 months then the comp wouldn't reference what pic you were comping. Well, I'm happy to report that the new limit is 7 months and the pic will show up, but anything older and no dice...❌

The profile photo comp issue is still not working. Any profile pic that you send a photo comp out to will not reference what pic you're comping regardless of age of the pic. This issue has remained status quo since my last report.

Thanks to +Bryan R​​​ for the assist.

Funny thing is I think people are starting to figure out their photo comps don't show and are starting to reference a bit more about the pic on their comp. I know I certainly have if I'm not sure if the receiver is an iPhone or Android user.

Crash report

When using YT, the app will often crash when switching back and forth between "All Talk" & "My Talk"

So along with the problem with photos not loading when you take a photo in-app on the business page, and the camera blurring and freezing for a second while trying to take a photo, I encountered a new one:
Yesterday my app loaded a totally unrelated photo (of a box) that was already in my camera roll, and way down the list (so not even the last taken photo).
I had to go back and delete it so I didn't look like a total dufus.

Still having the issues of uploading multiple pictures not showing up on the app. If I wait a few minutes between uploads it works ok. Android 4.4.4 gs4 with latest yelp app.

Have you noticed, under the "Friend Check- ins in Other Cities," after you click on the comment bar of that check in and back out, the city listed on the right side disappears?

+stephanie papp Thanks for the report. We'll look into this - definitely an odd disappearing act.

+Carmen Jackson  Since BMs are showing in both check-ins and Activity Feed, can we remove it from one of the feeds? Seems a bit redundant, cluttery, and unnecessary. Personally, I'd like them removed from activity.

Found a new bug with the latest beta (7.4.0-beta)

On the events page, when viewing the list of popular events in the area, the second (and subsequent) groups of events that are displayed duplicates the first group of events shown.

E.g. events 1 through 20 are displayed. When scrolling to the bottom of the list, the yelp loading icon is displayed briefly. The list is then appended by events 1-20 again, creating an overall list of events 1-20 + 1-20.

(BTW, love the easter egg!)

Question: is there any plans to add all the other ancillary comps types (i.e., cute pic, like your profile, great lists, etc) to the app? I noticed they recently changed the look of the icons on the website and I suspect that's to make them more app friendly?

#bug report: on several android devices I tested, the monocle feature does not correctly resize/display businesses and has shaky resolution compared to iPhone version. Suggested it to several new users and everyone takes to it well, but really only works on iPhone :-/

#bug report 🐞 🐞

Anyone else having issues approving comps? This has been going on for several days now. I'll hit approve button and it'll just say "approving" for 5-10 seconds followed by one of the two following errors (see pics below): "There was an error. Please try again later" or "Sorry, there's a problem connecting to the network."
All other aspects of the app are working during this weirdness but the actual comp approval.

#bug report 🐞 🐞

Occasionally when I try to post a video straight from the app the camera opens up out-of-focus and won't re-focus unless I back out and start it up again. Not a terrible inconvenience but kinda annoying.

I actually never post pics straight from the app; I always take the pics with my phone's camera app and then u/l later, but I would imagine that it would happen with pics as well as vids. I can test it and get back to you.

#bug report 🐞 🐞

This has been happening pretty frequently lately (4× in the past two days): 1st I start getting image loading problems; then I kill the app; re-open the app only to get the WSoD (see pic); kill app again; re-open app only to get WSoD again; I repeat this several more times and finally just restart my phone and then it works fine again. I tried waiting out the WSoD for over 5 minutes to see if it'd start up again eventually but no dice. Phone restart is the only fix I've discovered. Anyone else having this issue?

I believe that was a BSoD😜, but yes--very similar. I actually haven't gotten either in a few days, +Carmen Jackson​. A lot of these crash bugs seems arbitrary; no rhyme or reason
