Among Us, the surprise hit of 2020, has remained popular among streamers and viewers alike.

There’s something so thrilling about lying to your friends or watching streamers lie to other streamers—and Among Us has become the perfect vessel to do so over the past few months. And with the sequel now officially canceled, the 2018 game will be added to over time.

The game’s developers at Innersloth have been quietly adding new features, like colorblind support and game mode options such as the ability to hide the task bar, to Among Us’ beta version to test them out before they come to the full game.

If you want to test out these new features, or simply use them to help make your Among Us matches more interesting, here’s how to play the Among Us beta.
