Here’s how to enable program sneak peek

The new program is something that you actively need to opt for. It takes place in the official ‘ Google Cast’-app that can be downloaded for both iOS and Android. Here you go into the ‘ devices ‘ tab, and then click the icon  in the upper-right corner next to the device name. Now select the ‘ device settings ‘ and scroll down to the button ‘ sneak peek ‘ Programme. You can now choose whether you want to receive emails when new software updates, and then it is just to sign up.
