If you’re not part of the preview program, but would like to try it out, you can mention it in the comments (including your gamertag), and another reader might be able to send you an invite.

Preview members are exposed to non-final versions of the system software to make the launch of each patch smoother for everyone else, and not just to get a sneak peek on future updates.
