Beta for location testing

I’m going to probably push out a beta shortly to test the location stuff. There is a really annoying bug that appears to break registering location background tasks on devices that a developer tests with. So basically everything works properly on emulators and then doesn’t work on the device. Before i push a release to the store i want to make sure folks won’t get errors when turning on the background tasks.


I pushed it out to the beta. Make sure to read the release notes

I’d be happy to test :slight_smile:
Where can I sign up for the Location Beta?

Aside from the reliability of the location events firing did anyone get an error when they activated the background tasks?
