How is the editor different from a beta reader, and vice versa

Each writer is waiting for feedback on his works. And it’s wonderful if the responses appear. And if not?

If the readers either weren’t found, or they were silent, but would you like to know if the book is good and how good it is? Then there is only one way – to give up to the beta reader or editor.
