Alpha Testing

Alpha testing is the first step in checking a new computer game or app to make sure it works well.

It’s like a rehearsal that happens behind the scenes, done by the creators or a special team close to the project. They use the game or app just like real users would, but their main job is to look for mistakes or anything that doesn’t work the way it should.

They’re the first to play detective, uncovering problems so they can be fixed. This helps make the game or app better and ready for the next stage, where even more testers get involved. Alpha testing is all about making sure the basics are solid before it moves closer to being released to the public.
