Apple Seeds Ninth Beta of tvOS 15 to Developers

Apple today seeded the ninth beta of the upcoming tvOS 15 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming one week released the eighth 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 previously updated a ATV HD to that public beta, I just now updated the latest APTV 4K to that same public beta. I am located close to Apple in PST timezone. I went on both from 19J5345a to 19j5346a.
I am nowhere near Apple, in Adelaide Oz and I am downloading public beta without a problem. Similarly I did not see the ‘Get Beta Updates’ line but it downloads fine

It works great on mine. Both default HomePods and HomePod minis. Are your bugs specific to an application, bad wifi? I have not even heard of any bugs, let alone experienced them
multiple bugs on my end too.
1- HomePod mini cant be selected as default output (this hasn't been enabled yet, although it was listed as a feature of iOS15)
2- The HomePod mini's are flakey at best...constantly loosing pairing, and disconnecting. Also I have to continuously re-select them as it switches to TV speakers. Has nothing to do with bad wifi...been like this through each and every beta. Testing b9 tonight.
