Decentraland scene previews are compatible with Now, a very handy service that lets you upload content to a server to run for as long as you like, for free. You can very easily upload a Decentraland scene to one of these servers, and the preview for that scene will be automatically launched for each visitor.
This is a fantastic way to share your content with others! District leaders can use this to demonstrate their progress, developers can get feedback from others, or you can simply share what you’ve built with the community to get recognition for your work and to inspire others.
Once uploaded to Now, the only thing people have to do to see your scene is follow a link. They don’t need to install the CLI, Node, NPM, or any of the other tools that would be required to run the preview on their local machine.

To update a scene manually, follow the instructions detailed here, under the section Migrate a scene to 4.1.0.
Once your scene has been updated to 4.1.0, modify the package.json file to include a new script c...
