    • No, they will just take away such features quicker: You will lose features when non-preview users can still use them for a few more weeks.

  1. Well, I guess Google Home is prepping for the Chromecast integration and proactive notifications.
    At least that’s my reasoning as to why it is only just now offering a preview program.

  2. I’m on the preview program for chromecast and have had no issues. But my home usually works well, not sure I want to risk that considering how much I use it

    Side note, anybody still getting emails about preview firmware for the cc? I haven’t gotten one since the program started
