Web services automation Testing or Mobile Application and Software Testing are as important as application development.
Beta Testing is when the actual consumers try out the final product in the real environment. It allows them to provide any inputs related to the design, usability, performance, functionality or interface of the product. It is basically a final testing that is carried out for customer validation, just before the product is to be delivered to the client.
Why is it done?

It is done by Black Box Testing, therefore the end user who is testing the product just sees the software or application and use it like he would normally do, unaware of the what they are about to test or what the results would be.
