How to sign up for the Google Home Public Preview for a chance to test the redesign

Google is continuing to invite those who’ve signed up for the Google Home Public Preview program. Signing up gets you early access to a completely revamped Home app. Here’s how to make sure you’re on the list to join the Google Home app’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 we’ve come to be reluctantly used to.

For those that want to get in early with the new app version, there’s something called a “Public Preview.” That Public Preview is a program that allows anyone to sign up and get a chance to view the new app before it’s released in full.

In order to get access, you need to wait your turn. Recently, more users have reported receiving invitations to join Google’s Public Preview. It doesn’t look like it’s a large number of invitations popping up, though it’s a slight increase. This just means Google is rolling out more and more invites.
