Does using the beta api on graph.microsoft.com count?

e.g. an Add-in that used only beta apis like https://graph.microsoft.io/docs/api-reference/beta/api/subscription_get and https://graph.microsoft.io/docs/api-reference/beta/resources/opentypeextension

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for your question. Yes, using the Graph API will count towards your API requirement. Please see this update last week for the full info on using Graph (http://msoffice365.devpost.com/updates/4570-microsoft-s-new-graph-api-is-now-part-of-hack-productivity).

    Can't wait to see what you build!

    Thanks for your quick reply but I'd like a clarification if that means I can use the beta API. I noticed that the beta API is restricted to Office 2016 so will the testers be using Office 2016 or Office365? Do we need to make a special note to testers about which version of Office they can test on?

    Hi Daniel,

    Ah - thank you for the clarification. I'm going to check on the beta API question and I'll get back to you on that.

    As for your second question, yes, please include a note to testers on which version of Office to use. There is a place for this on the submission form.

    More soon!

    Hi Daniel,

    I’m sorry for the delay in my response.

    While you are welcome to use the Beta API, please keep in mind that Beta technology by nature is changeable. With that said you may not want to make the beta API a core feature of your solution because they are frequently updated and thus may break more frequently. If one feature or aspect of your solution breaks during testing, it may not lessen your possibility of winning a prize, but if your main function breaks that would be problematic.

    I hope that helps!
    Serena
