## Testing Unstable Settings

It is quite easy to test and give feedback about the development version of GNOME
Settings. Just access,
get the latest version, download it, double-click the file, install and run.

Note that GNOME Settings Flatpak will only work if you are running
the latest GNOME version in your host system.
