OSRS Mobile: Android Members Beta
After a series of incredibly successful closed testing periods, it's time for Old School RuneScape Mobile on Android to make the jump to open testing! As of 2pm BST on 5th July, players with membership will be able to download, install, and play the Android Members beta. No sign-ups are needed, you just need to head to the Old School RuneScape application on the Play store. Read the Android Members Beta section found below for more information. We know those of you with an iOS device are hungry for more information, so make sure you read the iOS In Development section found below for more information.

It's time for Old School RuneScape's mobile development to reach the next level! Closed testing on Android has been incredibly important and beneficial to us (see the What We've Been Up To section below), but the time is ripe to get it into the hands of more players. From 2pm onwards, Members with Android devices will be able to access Old School RuneScape. There is an install limit in place, which will mean that you are unable to download the game once this limit has been reached, this is in place only to ensure that we can continue to monitor the stability of the build. As our confidence in the build grows, we will continue to increase the number of installs available. Today’s initial release effectively doubles the number of players with access to mobile! If we’re happy with the progress then we expect to be increasing that number early next week. We'll then continue to increase the number of installs available as and when we're confident with the build. Sign-ups are not needed, and access to this test is purely on a first-come first-served basis, however, players with access to the current closed test will continue to be able to access Old School RuneScape.
Here's the essential information:

Currently we're working hard to be able to provide a continuous, uninterrupted service for Old School RuneScape on iOS devices. Our solution for this is still undergoing development, and we expect this to be in place later in the Summer. We're excited to be bringing your favourite game to your iOS devices and we really cannot wait to get Old School in the hands of iOS players! Thank you for your patience so far, we'll continue to give you regular updates on the status of iOS and we look forward to updating you on our development progress soon.
Each week's game update sees us share information about what content has changed via newsposts. However, at the moment there isn’t a defined process in place which allows us to share the information of what we’ve been working on in mobile development. This is something we’re very keen on changing! Whilst we’re still working out which method of sharing this information is best, we’d like to tell you about some of the content changes we've been working on (this is separate from changes being made to engine which we’re still working out how best to communicate these changes). Alongside the changes below, which you might consider to be 'smaller', work continues on more notable changes like the spellbook redesign.
