Registering a feature

You can add your feature by listening to elementor/experiments/default-features-registered hook:

use Elementor\Core\Experiments\Manager as Experiments_Manager;

add_action( 'elementor/experiments/default-features-registered', function( Experiments_Manager $experiments_manager ) {
	$experiments_manager->add_feature( [
		'name' => 'my-feature',
		'title' => 'My Feature',
		'description' => 'This is an experimental feature. Use it if you dare!',
		'release_status' => Experiments_Manager::RELEASE_STATUS_BETA,
		'default' => Experiments_Manager::STATE_ACTIVE,
	] );
} );

Now you will be able to see your feature in the Experiments dashboard:
