The Chromecast is a little miracle of a device that keeps getting better over time. If you want to be the first to try out new Chromecast features, Google’s created a preview program just for you.
The Chromecast Preview Program lets eager users try out new features before everyone else. Google says this isn’t a “beta”, as it wants any preview features to be as close to production as possible, but it’s still probably safe to expect a few bumps in the road if you sign up. To join the program, follow these steps:
- Open the Google Cast app on your device.
- Tap the Devices tab.
- Tap the menu button on the device you’d like to enrol.
- Tap Device Settings.
- Tap Preview Program.
- Tap Join Program (optional: Disable email updates here if you don’t want to be pestered.)
- Tap OK, Got It.
You’re all set! Currently, Google hasn’t released any new features for Chromecast users to try out, but since Chromecast updates often land in spring, we may hear something new soon.
