Apple Seeds Second Beta of tvOS 15.4 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 15.4 update to developers for testing purposes, with the software coming two weeks after Apple seeded the first tvOS 15.4 beta.

Apple TV tvOS 15 Feature
Developers can download the new tvOS 15.4 beta by downloading a profile onto the ‌Apple TV‌ using Xcode.

tvOS 15.4 adds support for captive Wi-Fi networks, which means that an iPhone or iPad can be used to connect your ‌Apple TV‌ to networks that require additional sign-in steps, such as in hotel rooms.

The update introduces an "Up Next" queue directly to the video player to make it easier to get from show to show when you're watching television. It lets you select your Up Next queue without having to go back to the Home Screen.

tvOS 15.4 also brings a new volume button that's accessible from the video player, and "Tap to Navigate" has returned as an accessibility option. Spatial audio controls have also been redesigned.

For the love of all things, please fix the library issue in the TV app for large libraries. "It's been 84 years..."

I'm at about 1800 movies myself. For being the premiere space to view movies and TV, the TV app has been nothing but a frustration. You'd think Apple would've fixed this issue years ago but here we are. Like, why punish those who have fully invested into the ecosystem and consistently spend money at their store(s)?

I just want to view my purchased content with ease.

I guess at this point, those with the Library tab still loading within the TV app should consider themselves lucky. Mine hasn't load in forever. If left loading it will just showing list of family members only. So frustrating.
