This is a minor upgrade in the grand scheme of things, but Essential is ironing out the issues ahead of a public launch later this year. If you are already part of the developer preview program and want to give this new software a shot, just keep an eye out for the over-the-air (OTA) update. If you aren’t part of the preview program and want to be, just click through here.
This is beta software, though, so things might be janky for a long while.
