Google is continuing to invite those whoâ€™ve signed up for the Google Home Public Preview program. Signing up gets you early access to a completely revamped Home app. Hereâ€™s how to make sure youâ€™re on the list to join the Google Home appâ€™s Public Preview.
The new Google Home app is a complete overhaul of the previous version. It brings a new UI, better device organization, and an easier camera management page. Overall, it boasts an easier and more thoughtful experience than the Google Home weâ€™ve come to be reluctantly used to.
For those that want to get in early with the new app version, thereâ€™s something called a â€œPublic Preview.â€ That Public Preview is a program that allows anyone to sign up and get a chance to view the new app before itâ€™s released in full.
In order to get access, you need to wait your turn. Recently, more users have reported receiving invitations to join Googleâ€™s Public Preview. It doesnâ€™t look like itâ€™s a large number of invitations popping up, though itâ€™s a slight increase. This just means Google is rolling out more and more invites.
