The cloud-based version of the company’s database, Firebase, is still in beta and the company has yet to announce a launch date.
But it is set to launch in the second half of the year, with a beta phase that runs until the end of the month.
The beta phase is meant to test out new features and to gather feedback before the final release.
In a blog post, the company said the beta phase would “help us to better understand our users, improve the experience, and improve our business.”
While Firebase has a large and active community of developers and users, the beta is meant as a test of how the company can best support the needs of those users, said Brian Wieser, CEO of the Palo Alto, California-based company.
Firebase, which was launched in 2014 by Amazon, was bought by Google in 2016.
Google has not released a release date for the beta version of Firebase.
The company said that if people use the beta to make new purchases, they can keep the paid version.
The beta is being run by a team of about 40 engineers, including Wiesers chief technology officer, Paul Fenton, who is a former Google employee.
It has also been run by two other employees from Google.
Wiesers post noted that the beta will be used for the company to evaluate and improve its existing product.
“We want to get this out in a way that’s as usable and as easy as possible,” Wies, the CEO of FireBase, wrote.
