Apple releases tvOS 9.1, delivers Siri for Apple Music on Apple TV

“Apple today released tvOS 9.1, the first major update to the tvOS operating system that runs on the fourth-generation Apple TV,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “tvOS 9.1 has been in testing since November 3, just a few days after the final version of tvOS was released alongside the new Apple TV in October.”

“tvOS 9.1 can be downloaded over-the-air through the Settings app on the fourth-generation Apple TV by going to System –> Software Update,” Clover reports. “Siri for Apple Music on the Apple TV works similarly to Siri for Apple Music on iOS devices, enabling queries like ‘What was the top song in 1980?’ or ‘Play Adele’s latest single.'”

Clover reports, “The tvOS update includes several bug fixes for issues discovered in the current version of tvOS, and according to beta testing notes, it features improvements to networking and scrolling.”

  1. I think it’s great people can now search their music with Siri, but I’d like to be able to search my movie library with Siri, as well. Currently Siri can only find locally Home Shared movies that appear in the on-screen list, which is pretty useless. I have nearly a thousand movies saved in iTunes. It would be cool to jump to the movie I want to play using Siri, but no go so far.

  2. This is awesome. I’ve been using Apple Music quite a bit on the New TV and now it just got way better.
    I still look forward to bluetooth keyboard support, but this was a big step forward.
