Feature tags help identify the state of each feature. A feature with no label  means the feature is stable and ready for use in your production environment. Features may also include a beta tag , which means the feature is available for use in your production environment but is still being tested for usability and accessibility behavior. Enabling a beta feature may create unintended behavior within your Canvas account.
