Activision recently released a new public test build (beta) for Call of Duty: Mobile. It contains new features that will be coming to the game in season 14. Players can check these out before anyone else by downloading the public test build.

The public test build has been released only for Android devices. The download size is 2GB. The public test build is only open to 50,000 players, so fans have to be quick if they want to check out the upcoming features in the game.

Activision said the beta is used to find any critical issues and bugs before updates are released in the global version. An end date for the build hasn't been revealed yet.
