As promised, Apple's TestFlight has arrived on the Mac App Store, bringing the app beta testing platform to macOS for the first time.

Like the long-time iOS and tvOS versions, Apple's TestFlight for Mac streamlines the app prototyping process by allowing developers to create, distribute, and manage beta software tests through one service.

Signs of the service's launch were originally seen in August when developers reported being able to submit macOS app beta builds to App Store Connect through Xcode 13 beta.

TestFlight for Mac was first announced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June. It has been in beta ever since.

The release version requires macOS Monterey 12.0 or later, and is a 5.6 megabyte download.
