Happy new year! We've been starting almost every blog post and newsletter with a nod to the new year. It's mid-January, and we're still doing it. You'd think it'd be getting old by now, but the year is still new, and most important, we're super happy. Like, really, really happy.
1Password 6, you guys! We've got so much cool stuff in store for you. We've got 1Password for Teams! Easily add your Teams accounts using the built-in QR code scanner. We've got Fingerprint Unlock! If you have a new-fangled device that supports it, I'm totally jealous. We've got Material Design! You'll find cleaner and more spacious layouts, a navigation drawer, toolbars, and umpteen other things, all focused on a consistent and convenient user experience.
We've also got a bunch of other improvements and fixes; check out the full story in the release notes.
Yep, Google Play. For ages you've been asking us to switch to Google Play for beta distribution. We thought a new major version (and new year) would be a good time for it.
To install 1Password 6 beta, you'll need access to the Google Play Store on your Android phone or tablet. The app can be installed on devices running Android OS 4.1+, 1Password for Teams features work with 5.0+, and Fingerprint Unlock works with 6.0+.
We love hearing from you! As always, you are warmly invited—nay, encouraged!—to share your thoughts with us. Can't wait to hear what you think about beta 1. Talk to you soon!
