While running Android O I noticed there is a "Beta" category in the Play store (see attached screenshot). Currently Firefox Nightly shows there - I am not sure what they are using as a definition of beta, but Firefox for Beta doesn't show there, nor does Google Chrome Beta.

I'm not really familiar with this, but from what I can tell
- Firefox Beta is *called* Beta, but as far as the Play Store is concerned, it's just a normal app
- Nightly (formerly Aurora) on the other hand is marked as an "unreleased" app, which is presumably why it's appearing in the Play Store's Beta category. From a user perspective, the major difference seems to be that review comments from other users aren't visible.
