Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.2 update to developers for testing purposes, a week after seeding the third tvOS 13.2 beta and a month after releasing the tvOS 13 update.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 13.2 developer beta can be downloaded onto the ‌Apple TV‌ via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

tvOS updates have historically been minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. Apple provides little to no information on what's included in tvOS updates, so we may not discover anything new during the beta testing process.

Though we don't often know what's been added in tvOS updates, we let MacRumors readers know when new software is available so developers are able to download it upon release.

We didn't find anything new in the first three tvOS 13.2 betas, but will update this post should we find new features in the fourth tvOS 13.2 beta.

tvOS 13, released in September, introduced multi-user support, a new Control Center, Apple Arcade and controller support, new screensavers and more. More info on tvOS 13 can be found in our tvOS 13 roundup.

I wish they'd add the ability to "totally disable multi-user everything" they added to tvOS 13

We just don't use our Apple TV's in a "login with different users" type of way at all.
We are the opposite but still dislike implementation of profiles/users.

Its from the basis of TV app only not main screen. To reflect viewing of different users you must go through TV app which has become Ad TV app with users only having control over the top line, but Restriction settings are mixed between device, apps, and user profiles in a bad way and with device settings effecting what shows even show up in watch now. No restrictions to change profiles. If you want to use it as a hub for Home iCloud becomes another device setting along with Game Center. I haven’t used this beta, but TV app and profiles have been so awful I have limited use of them as much as possible.

Its quite telling on how poor it’s been done to read posts here & elsewhere from people like you that don’t want profiles and dislike how Apple has implemented it and from people like us who wanted users/profiles but dislike how Apple has implemented. Can’t get either market right on profiles.

I've been enjoying quite a lot tvOS 13, and it's relatively stable on my side except that it goes to sleeping mode while we play music (on Apple Music or Spotify), which is annoying -- can't use it as a music player.

Fix the bug o AppleTV app and get rid of the ads. It reminds me of Verizon or Facebook. So tacky.

The user profiles implementation is so shoddy it shouldn't have been included at all. Just confusing to everyone.
