But, to answer your question, it will not.  The sensors on the M7 are insufficient for a dot view case.

You opt into the beta and then what? It doesn't offer an update to the beta in the Play store.

Sorry +Jonathan Corwin . This post had gotten flagged as spam for some reason, and I just caught it and approved the post today.

On April 2 the beta version of the app (version 1.5.2) got promoted to production.  So right now, there's no difference between the beta track and the production track.

But now that you've opted-in, you're on the beta track.  When the next beta comes out, you'll automatically get an update from the Play Store.

Can you provide beta testing link please? Thanks.

If you look on the right side of the community page (on the web) there's a card called "About this community" that has steps to opt-into the beta track.

Not sure if this had been mentioned, but the only way to get into the settings menu is opening an app and then selecting the drop down.

We've pushed v.1.5.1 of the app this morning. Bugfixes for the previous beta, mostly, but we've changed how the image galleries are handled as well. Going forward, look for this icon on images. Tap to open a gallery.

(To experience this on older posts, you might need to clear app cache/data first.)

Look for the update in the next few hours, and let us know how it goes. Thanks!

Being that it's posted here in the beta group, it was posted to the beta track. :)

We just uploaded v1.5 to the beta channel. It should be available for testing (remember that this here's a beta group) in the next few hours.

Here's the changelog:

★ Adds ability to view posts' accompanying image galleries. (Look for the image icon in the system bar.) We're looking into a few instances in which galleries might not properly appear, but certainly test the ones you can see, please.
★ Adds article swiping (yes, finally!). We're seeing a few instances where this doesn't mark stories as read in the main index. Looking into that also. (Hello, beta!)
★ Adds some in-app tips.
★ Adds support for Twitter card/Google app indexing
★ Wallpapers now give the option to download to your device
★ Minor bugfixes

Please report any feedback here. Thanks!

Confirmed. Happened to me too. Works fine on the web.

This is the "Russell Holley" G+ link at the end of the recent "Veronica Mars movie" post.

Ok will do thank you. Would it be a good idea to have done on the page to say the beta testing is over?

You guys should make the notification bar transparent like how the app "PushBullet" does. That would be amazing :D.

This is what I get when I try to opt in. Is the beta testing currently closed due to high demand?

There is an alignment issue with the hours ago that the article was posted (on a Nexus 5 with stock 4.4.2 running)

You can download the app from the Play Store.  If you're trying to get on the beta track, instructions are at the top right of this page (on the web).  Basically just join this community, and click on the "Opt-In" link.

I know a lot of people are bummed about NSFW being removed. I don't personally use it, but I don't mind it being there. How about bringing her back, but have it disabled by default and having an option in the settings to enable it. I know others would like the NSFW articles, too. I don't personally care either way, just offered an idea.

Now that I reread Phil's post.  It was requested that the NSFW section be removed by certain app stores, so I completely understand why it was done.  You don't want your app rejected by app stores because of some NSFW content.

There's a link in the comments a couple posts down. Seems like it should be with the instructions in the app too.
