Apple Seeds Seventh Beta of tvOS 15 to Developers

Apple today seeded the seventh beta of the upcoming tvOS 15 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming one week released the sixth beta.

Apple TV tvOS 15 Feature
Developers can download the new tvOS 15 beta by downloading a profile onto the ‌Apple TV‌ using Xcode.

Apple shared little about tvOS 15 when it was unveiled, but there are some new features that are coming to the operating system. SharePlay, a FaceTime feature that lets multiple users watch TV shows or movies together, will integrate with tvOS, and there's a new "For All of You" recommendation engine that suggests shows everyone might enjoy.

A Shared With You section also displays movies and shows that were shared with you through the Messages app so you remember to check them out. When paired with AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, the ‌Apple TV‌ supports Spatial audio for a theater-like surround sound experience, and there's a new feature for automatically connecting your AirPods through Smart AirPods routing.

Hey Siri commands can be used to launch Apple TV+ shows, and two HomePod mini speakers can be paired with the ‌Apple TV‌ 4K for stereo sound. If you have HomeKit cameras, you can also now view multiple cameras at the same time on the ‌Apple TV‌.

I'm just happy the most recent version fixed the brutal audio synch issue I had with my HomePods. I'm now scared to update when this version comes out in the fall.

Did they fix Library tab for large libraries yet, or is it still sloppy, low quality experience one would expect from Facebook.
