    I opted in to the Beta Program, but I’ve not yet seen or had access to any of its features. Does it take a while, or is there something I’m missing?

    They took it out of Beta, and updated results now.

    Are you by any chance using IE to view your results? It doesn't work for some reason. I had the same problem and had to use Chrome to view mine. Safari, Firefox, chrome, etc.

    Seems really nice but, "but when you experience an issue or have feedback on the feature, submit a report via the Feedback module on the bottom of pre-release feature that you are testing". Especially given all the privacy issues FB's having, a company like this forcing FB use is just dumb. Also, it would be nice to have more clear indication if there's anything to test, according to the customer service page they don't alert you to them in any way, you have to look for the beta features. I'm split if this is a clever ploy to get people to spend more time on the site (What would 23andMe's benefit be?) or an attempt to get testers to use the features in "normal" way. But like I believe most people do, I only visit 23andMe when I learn they've got a new feature.

    My uncles just got updated again, and he is listed as a beta tester. His British/Irish dropped from around 3-40% to about 8, so things are looking much better now.. I will try to get the rest of my profiles updated too..

    Note that he is actually on the V2 chip and not the V5:
    Dear 23andMe Beta Tester,

    As part of our ongoing effort to improve the 23andMe experience for all customers, we’re in the process of updating Ancestry Composition with 7 additional Central & South Asian populations. Note that this beta update is only available for customers on the v5 chip at this time.

    I'm a beta tester and got an email about the update but cannot view it as I'm on an earlier chip, as is my brother although I think I have V2 and he has V3.

    I think they are testing and rolling back at the moment, as my uncle is V2 and his got updated...

    I had a look at when it was updated and it says:

    I got my beta results today. Nothing really new. Removed my Spanish and Portuguese at least.
    But i got Irish and British instead. Strange since I have no connection to Britain.

    The same for me: I've got Italian and Scandinavian and I am pretty sure that this is not true.

    If you are full Ukrainian I really doubt the results.
    I forgot to mention. They removed my African 0,1% And North East African 0.4%.
