How to sign up for Google Home app viewer on Android

Google is preparing to open a “preview” program for the Home app on Android, giving early access to new features for your smart home — here’s how to sign up.

About APK Insight: In this APK Insight post, we have unzipped the latest version of the app that Google uploaded to the Play Store. If we decompile these files (called APK files in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code within this hint at possible future features. Note that Google may or may not ship these features at all, and our interpretation of them may be incomplete. However, we will try to allow those who are close to the target to show what it would look like if they attacked. With that in mind, keep reading.

Google has offered a public preview program for Chromecasts, Google Home speakers, and Nest Hub displays for years. For the past few years, this preview program has been the gateway to testing the Google Fuchsia operating system, but it’s usually designed to test new features a few weeks before release.

It looks like Google is planning to extend its preview program to the Google Home app itself. As shown below, the registration page tells you that the preview program will open “early features” on the Google home page, but of course warns that these features will likely still be riddled with bugs.
