Google has launched a new Preview Program for its Chromecast dongle that – as the name suggests – allows users to have early access to new Chromecast updates. To be clear, this is not a beta program – the company assures that Preview Program updates will be of the same quality as production version updates.

Here’s how Google explains the new program:
The Chromecast Preview Program is a user opt-in channel that updates your Chromecast device with the latest version of Chromecast’s firmware before it is made broadly available. This gives members of the program early access to features and improvements on their Chromecast. It’s an exciting way to get a sneak peek at the latest and greatest updates – and tell us what you think!
All Chromecast versions – including Chromecast (1st gen), Chromecast, and Chromecast Audio – are eligible to join the program. For more information, head to the Source link below.
