You Can Now Sign Up to Get Chromecast's Newest Features Early

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Google’s launched the Chromecast Preview Program, a scheme that’ll give you access to the newest Chromecast features before anyone else (well, anyone who hasn’t signed up to it).

Google’s confirmed these will not be ‘beta’ releases, but real, proper updates. “This is not ‘beta’ software,” the company said while announcing the Program. “Our intention is that Preview Program updates will be of the same quality as production version updates. You're simply getting earlier access to new features before they’re released broadly.”

How do you sign up?

  • Open the Cast app
  • Hit Devices
  • Tap the menu button on the gadget of your choice
  • Select Device Settings
  • Hit Preview Program
  • Tap Join Program

There are no updates available yet, but with Google planning an October 4th event, we imagine that won't be the case for too long. [Lifehacker]
