Chromecast Preview Program Launched
The Chromecast Preview Program allows you to enroll your Chromecast devices to receive platform preview builds. Enrolling in the Chromecast Preview Program gives you early access to new features and updates before they are released broadly.
We recommend that Google Cast developers enroll into the Preview Program to verify that your apps work well with the new platform features a few days before it is rolled out broadly. As long as there is availability, you can enroll a Chromecast device in the Preview Program using the Google Cast app Device Settings: http://goo.gl/IMYPv2
The Preview Program is only available for Chromecast devices, not for third-party devices that incorporate Google Cast. A limited number of users are allowed to join the Preview Program.
We know many Chromecast developers have requested for this, so we’re excited to give you early access to platform updates before your users. You can use the Google Cast app to file feedback for any issues you encounter: http://goo.gl/D57B0Y
You can leave the program at any time, but it may take as long as a few weeks until the next production firmware update is received by your device so that it can be moved off the preview build. Therefore, as a developer we recommend that you dedicate a Chromecast device to the Preview Program.
Happy Casting!#googlecast #googlecastsdk #chromecast
