Google recently said that it will start sending search traffic to Accelerated Mobile Pages sometime in late February. Just ahead of the holidays, Google was found to already be showing AMP-related errors in Search Console to some users.

This week, Google Webmaster Trends analyst John Mueller posted on Google+ asking if you're interested in trying out AMP features in Search Console (via Search Engine Roundtable).

"If your game this year includes working on Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), especially if you’ve already implemented AMP for a site, and you’re keen on giving us feedback on new features, you might want to sign up as a beta-tester," he wrote.

There's an application form to do so here.

The form says, "At Google, we're constantly working on improving Web-Search as well as our tools, documentation, and services for publishers. We've found that it's really helpful to get input from users as we try things out. If you'd like to join as a tester, feel free to sign up here. We'll get in touch with you as we start working on projects that you might find interesting."

Up front, you're asked to give your name, company, role, email address, Search Console email address, country, and language(s) before proceeding to three more pages of stuff to fill out.

You can learn more about AMP here. It's likely to be one of the biggest changes to Google search this year.
