Google Home preview program is now available to a few people


At the beginning of this month, Google revealed the existence of a new preview program for Google Home after updated help pages appeared online. That page shared the instructions for joining the Google Home preview program, which has now appeared as available to join inside the app for some.

After checking my device and navigating to the device settings menu, I was able to see a toggle called Preview Program set to Off. Tapping it gave me a pop-up confirmation showing my email and asking me if I want to enroll. After selecting yes, the app informs me that I’m enrolled in the program and just waiting on a preview firmware update now.
